With working in a school and sending my oldest daughter to kindergarten this year there was one thing I was just counting the days until. I was counting until the dreaded back to school cold hit our family. We didn’t make it far into the first month of school before this mama had a cold. Thankfully, I was prepared this year.
No need for a late night run to the store to get some cough and cold medicine. I already had what I needed on hand at home. A friend of mine had introduced me to Boiron when my oldest was little and dealing with teething, it wasn’t long after that I discovered their line of medicines to help with cold and flu season.
Stodal Honey has been used the most in our house. It’s a homeopathic medicine to help with wet or dry coughs. It’s for kids 1 to 11 years old, but I will be honest even I have used this before to help with my cough. The honey-based formula has a better taste than other cough medicine options out there which is why even I have used this.
My youngest was sadly the next one to get the cold, but her symptoms were different. The poor girl was dealing with a head cold. She had a stuffy nose, but then in the evening was dealing with it being runny. Not fun when all you want to do is rest and get a good sleep. Coryzalia to the rescue for her. It comes in little unit doses that are easy to administer. I’ve also learned to keep a package of them in the diaper bag just in case.
I am thankful the flu has not hit us yet, but Oscillococcinum will help us deal with that if we need to. This one is for all the ached that come with the flu, the dreaded body aches, headaches, and chills. I’m saying a prayer we won’t have to deal with anyone in our family getting the flu, at least we’re prepared if needed.
Fall has arrived and so has cold and flu season. Are you prepared to alleviate symptoms and help your family feel better?
What’s your go-to for cold + flu season? Do you use Boiron in your home?
