Cold & flu season is upon us! And, given all the medical craziness our family has had the past few months, I’m doing everything in my power to try to avoid getting any of these respiratory viruses and/or lessen the symptoms once they hit! Baby Brother has had a Christmas cold, but so far (knock on wood), it’s been pretty minor and everyone else has stayed healthy. One thing we’ve been using to help fight the nasal congestion is ARM & HAMMER™ Simply Saline™.
I love that it’s safe enough to give the kids! There really is very little over-the-counter cold/cough relief “medicine” that is deemed safe to give to the really little ones. But, my pediatrician recommends using a saline spray for the cold & flu ick. I love that the ARM & HAMMER™ Simply Saline™ has just two simple ingredients – purified water and salt. So, it’s safe for little noses too. The kids certainly don’t like using it, but it really does help to flush out the yucky noses (and it doesn’t hurt that it almost always makes my little guys sneeze ;), which helps flush things out as well). The other benefit is that it helps moisturize the nasal passages, which is especially important this time of year. Heaters (and drier air in general) dry out all of our mucous membranes, making us more susceptible to those nasty respiratory bugs. So, this time of year especially, ARM & HAMMER™ Simply Saline™ is a must-have in our medicine cabinet!
