What’s Your Sick Day Survival Kit? $25 Gift Card #Giveaway #Ad

Sick Day Survival Kit

    Those of you who also follow me on social media know that my younger son is asthmatic.  As a result, we spend quite a bit of time fighting off upper respiratory infections during the winter.  The moment that the temperatures drop here in New York City, we have to keep the house stocked with everything that he needs to be comfortable when he gets sick.

    We have all experienced a sick day from time to time. Whether it is with little ones or ourselves, it is always good to have a Sick Day Survival Kit prepared for that moment. Read more about 5 must-haves for every sick day survival kit for kids.  

These 5 necessities include:

  • Tissues and thermometer
  • Cough and Cold Medicines
  • Humidifier and Blankets
  • Entertainment in the form of DVDs
  • Plenty of fluids to stay hydrated

    Make sure that you keep all of these items on hand so you can brave any sick days you might experience this winter.  Nobody likes to be sick but, sometimes we don’t have a choice, and it is better to be prepared in advance than to be caught off guard.  After all, why suffer when you can start to feel better sooner than later? 

Let’s Discuss:  What are some of the items that you keep in your sick day survival kit for you and your kids?
