Baby's Sick Day Guide

1. NoseFrida The Snotsucker Nasal Aspirator

We bought this before Bennett was actually born, went on vacation...then it vanished. This month Bennett got somewhat of a cold, and we were using the good ol' bulb syringe. I knew that the Nose Frida thing works better, but kept putting it off because I figured we would find it. Ended up buying it from Target one day, and the next day Bennett's nose was all clear. Definitely glad I picked it up! 

2. Little Noses Saline Spray/Drops

My husband and I are huge fans of the adult saline solution, so when Bennett had his cold we got some for him. This made it so much easier to help him breath. It is a little difficult to count the drops that go in the nose, but a little practice and you will get it! 

3. Infants Tylenol Pain Reliever

I have like 3 bottles of this on hand, one in my room, one in Bennett's room, and one in the diaper bag. You know how tylenol works for you, well same thing with babies. Today Bennett was running a fever and within an hour it had already dropped a degree. I'm hoping it stays down, but if it doesn't I've got some tylenol to help it. 

4. Vicks Baby Rectal Thermometer

Usually when you call the doctor's office they ask how the temperature was taken. Yes, the arm is a great way to take it or the forehead thermometer...but nothing is more accurate then the rectal. 

5. Boogie Wipes

These are great for on the go when you want to be gentle on babies nose when wiping it. Saline, Aloe, Chamomile, and Vitamin E make these the perfect go to wipe for any sweet little baby nose. 

Little Something Extra:

When your little one is running a fever you want them in something light but comfy. I love simple T's from Carter's or even the Sleep and Play one pieces. Today we totally enjoyed our short sleeve shirt and gdiaper. 

My little man not feeling well today. (Yes, that is a reindeer paci from Christmas--don't judge.)

    1. Haha, I can see how easy it is to get grossed out from it. But it works that's why I love it!

  3. I have to admit I laughed at Boogie Wipes initially. I thought: Really? Is this necessary?

    But now I'm hooked. They are so slick to use! And my kiddo's noses don't get so raw anymore. :)

    1. I thought the same thing! I was like really a wet wipe for a nose, but I'm hooked now!

  5. We've had some sick days also. It's always so hard when little ones are sick. We had the stomach bug, yuck.

    And gdiapers? Yay for fluffy bums :)
