My toddler got sick two weeks ago and it was miserable. When our kids get sick we pull out all the stops. We pull out the home made soup recipe, humidifier, thermometer, popsicles, fluids , vapor rub and a strict rest schedule.If they’re old enough, we put them on a strict medicine regimen, following the dosing instructions to a T – even if that means waking up in the middle of the night. Isn’t it crazy how we do all of this without a second thought but when we get sick it’s an entirely different story? I can’t tell you how many times I’ve exclaimed “Sick? I don’t have time to be sick.” And knowing what I have to look forward to; I try incredibly hard not to get sick.
I work out regularly, eat healthy and drink plenty of OJ for vitamin C to keep my immune system up. I wash my hands frequently and try to instill healthy hand washing habits in the kids. Then when cold and flu season rears its ugly head I go through and disinfect the house, especially the kids toys.
But sometimes taking care of sick kiddos catches up to me. Before I know it I’m dragging myself out of bed, feverish, eyes glazed over mumbling something about not having time for this nonsense. No home made chicken noodle soup for me. No strict rest schedule.But there isn’t time to be sick – there are no sick days for moms. Like most moms, I rely heavily on over the counter medicine. Vicks DayQuil and Vicks NyQuil are my best friends.
Did you know Vicks DayQuil is the #1 pharmacist recommended brand for adult cough/cold/flu relief? It’s non-drowsy, multi-symptom relief is perfect for helping me power through my day. Vicks Dayquil works to suppress the impulse to cough, helps clear nasal congestion, relieves body aches, and reduces a fever.
When you’re sick falling asleep at night, and staying asleep, can be one of the hardest things to do but we all know rest is instrumental in a quick recovery. Vicks NyQuil relieves the same symptoms as DayQuil but it helps me fall asleep and stay asleep at night.
But the best part of Vicks Products is that they’re available in capsules with easy dosage, so I can throw them in my purse as I go about my day. Plus, who really like the taste of cough syrup?
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Vicks DayQuil & NyQuil. I received product samples and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
