The season when you’re kiddo comes home from school with every sickness known to man has arrived, and the germaphobe in me just wants to crawl into a hole with a jar of edible cookie dough and a case of wine, and not come out until spring arrives. But let’s be real, we all know a case of wine isn’t going to last me that long, so I’ve decided to put the hand sanitizer down and just embrace the snotty chaos this year.
Since my daughter has already graced our home with two rounds of colds this year, I thought I would be nice and share some of my tips, tricks & hacks dealing with sick little ones.
1. Water Is Your Child’s Bestie!!!
Kids tend to hate water, but if you’re unsure of what bug your child brought home, water will be your safest bet! If your kiddo ends up puking, water is easy to clean up compared to something stinky like milk! If your child doesn’t puke, at least they are nice and hydrated!
2. Stock The House With Tissues.
The first round of colds to make it through our household, ran us right out of tissues. We figured toilet paper would make an ok replacement and joke was on us. Unless you’re comfy with your child rockin a red nose a week after the sniffles say peace out, load up on those tissues when you spot them on sale at the market! Once you’re child is healthy again and you eventually come down with that god awful sickness, sick you will thank healthy you for being a tissue hoarder.
3. Baking Sheets
Thats right, baking sheets! If you aren’t fancy and own breakfast in bed tables, the next best thing to use is a baking sheet. You’re child will be able to use it as a table to do anything requiring a hard surface, keeping them tucked away in that bed until they are well again.
4. Dollar Store Books & Coloring Books
Just because your kiddo is sick, doesn’t mean the “I’m bored” cries end. Your child will be just as bored, but will be coughing in between the boredom cries. Dollar Store Coloring Books and Books can equal countless hours of in bed entertainment once that tablet dies. Plus, that baking sheet I mentioned above will come in handy when those crayons come out!
5. Mom-created Lolleez™ Throat Soothing Lollipops
Does you’re kid hate anything Medicine related?! Mine sure does, and that counts cough drops! At 5 years old, my daughter just doesn’t understand that I’m trying to help her with modern medicine! Giving her Lolleez™ Soothing Lollipops however, total game changer for us! That frown has turned upside down now that she realizes her throats will be feeling a million times better due to a lollipop!
A Little About Lolleez™
When it came to sore throats, mom of four and health coach, Melissa Evans couldn’t find anything to “eez” her kids’ throats or her mind. Thus, the idea for Lolleez™ was born. Lolleez™ are organic, worry-free, throat soothing lollipops for kids, that offer a simple solution to a simple problem.
What Makes Lolleez™ Different?
First, it’s the ingredients – Lolleez™ are made from USDA Certified Organic ingredients and ingredients you can pronounce and understand, like natural fruit pectin and organic honey. They are also Non-GMO as well as gluten, dairy and nut free.
Second, it’s the worry-free shape – Lolleez™ are flat and on a stick versus a round ball, which is a potential choking hazard.
Lastly, it’s the flavors – Lolleez™ comes in three delicious kid (and adult) friendly flavors: Watermelon, Strawberry and Orange Mango. After surveying hundreds of kids, Lolleez™ founders determined that traditional flavors like cherry and grape have a negative association that is tied to medicines.
Where To Purchase?
Lucky for us, Lolleez™ are easy to find since they are available at CVS, Stop & Shop, and on Amazon! Then starting in November at Babies ‘R’ Us.
Lolleez™ also come in packs of 15 pops: Watermelon, Strawberry, Orange Mango and a Variety Pack for a suggested retail price of $6.99.

Ugh you know what they say - if one kid in class has something, ALL the kids in class have something. It's so true! What a clever idea baking sheets are - I never would have thought! Great little hack. :)

These sound awesome. I'll have to pick some up the next time my kids fall ill. It usually happens in the winter :/

Washing hands and making sure they are getting their vitamins. My kids would love the watermelon the best!

the strawberry flavor
11/30/2017 12:01:12 pm
My "big kids" would love the Orange Mango flavor. My tip is to use Manuka honey at the first sign of a sniffle or sore throat. Boost that immunity!!
11/30/2017 01:51:52 pm
My tip is to ALWAYS wash your hands and Strawberry is the kids' favorite flavor.
11/30/2017 07:08:56 pm
I don’t have children however, whenever my nieces and nephews get sick they are eager to share their germs with me. So I will definitely be sharing this post with all of my siblings.

The tendency of catching cold and flu increases when the season changes. Warm water with ginger powder would be the perfect homemade remedy.

Washing hands frequently is my biggest tip and the Orange Mango would probably be the favorite flavor.

12/6/2017 12:20:28 pm
I love the idea of having a baking sheet for them to eat and color on! I never would have thought of that! Usually I just try to get my kids to sleep all day-and that’s so boring! I think my kiddos would love all the flavors, but maybe watermelon would be the favorite.
12/6/2017 12:32:55 pm
Orange mango would be a big hit at my house!
12/6/2017 01:53:34 pm
My nephew and I would BOTH like the watermelon :) !

Love the tips. Those look like they would definitely come in handy when the girls are sick. Thanks for sharing.
12/6/2017 02:13:30 pm
Taking lots of vitamins! I make sure my kids get their daily vitamins and they both hardly get sick.
12/6/2017 02:39:18 pm
My tips are to wash your hands regularly, avoid sharing water bottles, exercise regularly to keep up a good immune system and get the flu shot! My niece would love the strawberry flavor the most!
12/6/2017 04:26:13 pm

Anastasia loves loves the strawberry flavor. You can't beat giving kids candy when they are sick and it's soothing for them! My tip is put away the to do list for a couple of days, take some deep breaths, and snuggle close to your little love. Although it stinks when they get sick, it's also and opportunity to pause, reflect, and cherish these moments or getting to hold them and being there for them. They won't be little forever!

Get plenty of sleep!!!
12/7/2017 01:46:04 am
My nephew and I would both love watermelon!

12/7/2017 08:43:19 am
Wash, wash,wash your hands! Drink plenty of water. I think my kids would like the strawberry flavor best.
12/7/2017 09:15:03 am
