5 Must Haves for Fighting a Cold

 Here are 5 items I always try to keep around the house when the kids have cough & colds. Besides always keeping Children’s Dimetapp on hand… Some other favorites are VapoRub, you can never have enough VapoRub on hand. Bath & Body Works hand sanitize, they always have them on sale for 5 for $5. Every time, I get a chance, I always go and get those and stick them around the house. The kids love them, they’re always keeping their hands clean, I can’t complain. Also another amazing item is chicken noodle soup, my personal favorite is Progresso’s chicken noodle, because it’s just better than the normal boring stuff. Lastly, Kleenex tissues are always a must!

5 Must Haves for Fighting a Cold

1) Children’s Dimetapp | 2) VapoRub | 3) B&BW Hand Sanitizer | 5) Kleenex Tissues | 6) Progresso Chicken Noodle Soup


Children’s Dimetapp
 Cold & Cough tackles your child’s most bothersome stuffy and runny noses, all while working to relieve your child’s cough. And, it comes in a great, grape flavor that kids love. Available in 4 and 8 ounce sizes. Do not use in children under age 6.

You really have to pay attention the amount of Children’s Dimetapp you give a child with a cold. Children ages from 6 to 12 get 2 tsp every four hours. Children 12 years or older get 4 tsp every four hours. You shouldn’t take more than 6 doses in 24 hours.

Children’s Dimetapp is always a favorite in our house, the kids love the grape taste over other medicines that are orange or cherry flavored. I hate having to fight them to take their medicines, so when it comes to Children’s Dimetapp, they’re excited (in a good way). I love the fact, they have different times of Children’s Dimetapp for all kinds of colds that the kids can have.

Children’s Dimetapp Cold & Cough is best for stuffy noses, runny noses, sneezing, itchy watery eyes and coughing.

  1. I needed to read this post this morning because I’ve woken up with a cold AGAIN! I need to go and buy some Vicks, it’s the best thing ever for colds.

  2. These are definitely all items I have for when I have a cold! When back home, I love the Kleenex moisturizing tissues- blowing your nose so many times can dry it out, so I like the moisturizing ones to combat this!

  3. These are some great items to definitely have on hand. I have a ton of those BBW hand santitizers and the tissue boxes! 🙂

  4. These are great items to have around especially this time of year. The Dimetapp for kids is awesome and I love they have the different ones for different symptoms. Vicks Vaporub is amazing when you have a cold and I put a lil under my nose to help me breath when laying down. Thanks for sharing.

  5. I don’t use ANY of this stuff!! lol I’m a crunchy Mama. Thieves oil is my go to….you just rub a couple of drops on the soles of your feet to prevent a virus. On the off chance anyone in the house becomes sick, we can diffuse it and take a drop or two in a drink. It doesn’t taste bad (eugh, oil of oregano makes me want to cry lol) and it smells wonderful! Plus it kills germs. I’m telling you, that stuff is liquid gold! lol

    I hope you remain healthy during this icky flu season!! Great suggestions!
