Flu season is upon us and we have been promised that it will be bad this year. We have already experienced the pure delight of high fevers, aching bodies, vomiting and sore throats at my house. Prompting me to evaluate what I have on hand to ease my families pains this season. Also, as a SAHM and with no one to take care of me, I have had to look for convenience items an have a plan to take care of me.
Here are some of my favorite ease the symptom products:

These really work as long as your little one will leave it alone.

Have ready made or frozen soups on hand. I have several frozen soups and they have saved me from taking my sick self and 3 kids to the store.

Ziplock bags. Throw up right in the bag zip it and throw it away. Bye bye smell and yucky cleanup. You can also use cleaned out coolwhip and large yogurt containers. The opening is wide and kids have a better chance with it stiff construction of keeping all in one place. Put the lid on and toss in the trash.

Plenty of tissues.
(check out the new shape)
I don't know about you, but I love a clean bowl to throw up in. Better yet, I love disposable brushes. I can't stand to look at a dirty orange colored brush when I am sick.
I also like baby vapor rub and bath to have on hand during the cold season. I don't want to forget Ibuprofen!
Good luck to all, may you and your families stay healthy!

I've never tried those forehead strips. I wish I'd known about them in January when Gavin had the flu and a fever for 10 days. I'm going to add them to my shopping list right now.
