Winter is coming and so are the germs. Today’s post explores the contents of a DIY Winter Wellness 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 Winter Wellness 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 Winter Wellness Toolkit 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 Winter Wellness Toolkits!
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?
