I am very thankful that my kids don’t seem to be as sick as some of my friend’s kids. Maybe the snow and cold keeps the germs away. I dread wiping their poor little noses when they are sick though. I usually try to use a wet wash cloth or a paper towel so that it won’t make their noses all red and chapped. Or I’ll use a wipe but I don’t think they smell that great and neither do the kids. I was introduced to Boogie Wipes and I love them. I use them just about every day for someone’s nose!
Boogie Wipes was introduced by two moms who wanted to invent a saline nose wipe for their kids to prevent sore noses. In 2007 Julie Pickens and Mindee Donley sold their first Boogie Wipe which was quickly recognized as a great alternative to dry tissues. The two moms have never looked back and even invented another product for adults!
My daughter is teething horribly and has had a drippy nose every day for the last month. I’ve figured out that she’s getting three molars and another tooth so you can imagine the wipes and bibs I go through on a daily basis. I use the Boogie Wipes with her and it does not make her nose so unbearable since I have to wipe her face a lot during the day. When I use a washcloth or a towel she squirms and fusses so these must be a relief for her little red nose.
My son happened to get a cold at the same time my daughter is going through her teething episode. He sniffs and sniffs and it is so annoying! I am constantly on him to blow his nose and he does a really good job when I remind him. He does not mind using the Boogie Wipes and even asks for the grape smelling tissues. My husband thinks the grape smell is a little too sweet almost like candy. I don’t really mind but I did notice my daughter liked to use the fresh scent the best.
Boogie Wipes are available online and at retail stores, including Target and come in four scents to choose from: Menthol, Grape, Fresh or Unscented. One reader will receive a gift basket of Boogie Wipes products to try!
