A DIY Winter Wellness Toolkit is perfect because winter is coming and so are the germs. Today’s post explores the contents of a toolkit.
Every winter I always catch some sort of sickness. Whether it be a cold, headache, or hints of the flu, the germs somehow find me as soon as temperatures drop. I find that being sick isn’t that bad, it’s not being able to take care of my family that I hate the most. Children require a healthy Mom, not one stuck in bed with a cold.
It’s hard for Moms to get out of the house when sick. Prepare for the germs with a toolkit.
If you’re a Mom then you know how hard it is to run out to the store at the drop of a hat. Now think about how difficult it is to go to the pharmacy when you’re feeling under the weather with a three-year-old and a 3-month-old in tow. My solution: a Mommy’s Winter Wellness Toolkit stocked and ready for use.
If you aren’t a Mom but know someone who is, this survival kit would make a perfect gift for the holidays or her baby shower.
Customize a kit for every Mom with products she loves and needs.
When I’m downstairs with a fussy baby and temperamental toddler and a headache strikes – I reach for a pain reliever. Sometimes I do have to ask myself, is my headache from lack of sleep, a forgotten morning coffee, or the yells from the little one who thinks she runs the household?
Other times, it is just germs wreaking havoc on my health. I try to fend off the germs with vitamin C, Elderberry, and sanitizer. But if I catch a cold, I have wet wipes (or Boogie Wipes), tissues, and lotion for a dry nose.
When you are breastfeeding, Moms are limited to the type of pain relievers she can take. The safest choice is MOTRIN® IB as the lowest levels of the medicine are passed through breastmilk to the baby.
A personal Winter Wellness Toolkit wouldn’t be complete without MOTRIN® IB. This pain reliever is responsible for temporarily reducing fever and relieving minor aches and pains due to the common cold, flu, headache, sore throat, or toothache.
Make Two !
You can easily create your own Winter Wellness Toolkit to put in your car, kitchen, or travel bag. I have two – one for my purse and one that I keep in our kitchen. You can make two winter wellness toolkits to keep in the places you find yourself most.
My mini-pharmacy is convenient when winter germs find us. I have thought about creating a Winter Wellness Kit for Kids that Annabelle can use too! A kids version would include: tissues, sanitizer, lotion, and chapstick.
What would you incorporate in a Winter Wellness Toolkit?
