How do you typically fight off the cold and flu season with your family?

Posted by   + Show Post

We sent some moms a "Sick Day Supermom" package as part of the Children's Mucinex Program. In addition to a variety of fun items for their children, each mom received a coupon for Children's Mucinex and a gift card to help get their kids through the cold and flu season.

Read how these moms fight off the cold and flu season with their family and then share your story.

Hand washing is most important and I always stress to the kids not to share food and drinks.

We used Mucinex when my dd was sick in December.

I get a flu shot- No one else does. I get sick more than anyone else. I work in 2 hospitals (AKA incubators).

We have 5 kids, so we have to isolate the sick one!

I know some Peds def. refer to Childrens Mucinex for OTC.

We get our flu shots almost as soon as they're available in the fall. We wash our hands like crazy, cover our coughs; if some nastiness does creep in, we usually stick to natural remedies, unless it gets very bad, then I'll do some OTC.

 We get the flu shots as soon as they are available too.

same here.. Lysol wipes are my new BFF!

Quoting erikays:

Since the flu is going around like crazy, my oldest goes straight to the bathroom and washes his hands, when coming home from school. Then I make sure to wipe down the sink handles and anything he touches before washing. With having two younger ones also, I try my hardest from everyone getting sick.

We use OTC meds, cough drops and nasal spray, if needed. For me, a lot of tea with honey and I try to pump the OJ into the kids.
