Beating the Flu and a giveaway!

January 24, 2013

Has your family been sick a lot this year? If there’s one thing I try to avoid every winter it’s the constant string of cold and flu that goes around. We were lucky this year and managed to escape all but the crud and some ear infections right around Christmas, but have otherwise been healthy!

I like to think it’s because of our healthy diet, making sure the girls get plenty of rest, constant hand washing and some common sense. Even with two in Preschool, and being in a state affected severely by the flu, we’ve managed to get around it all!

I was bracing for it to be awful, prepared with lots of medicine, chest rub, and an arsenal of humidifiers that I’m glad to say have been largely unused. I’ve talked before about how I like to make my own cleaners for the house and while they’re amazing, I’m still scared about them actually killing cold and flu germs that can live on surfaces.

So while my vinegar and baking soda can clean just about any mess, I prefer to fight fire with Clorox. We’ve taught the girls to sneeze in their elbows and everyone is using my flannel tissues, which get tossed immediately into the washer and don’t wind up all over the house, or torn into pieces by the baby, like other tissues have in the past.

Sofie has approached fighting germs like a job! She’s so happy to wash her hands many times a day (though I think she’s playing in the water more than anything!), and has a blast taking Clorox Disinfecting Wipes and cleaning off all door knobs, faucets, the fridge handles, and any other surface we touch with our hands on a regular basis. Several times I’ve caught her going the extra mile and wiping off my cell phone, the remote, my laptop, keys, and her iPod. She loves to help and I love to encourage the elimination of potentially nasty germs!

We still have several months of cold and flu season left, but I’m confident we can escape it if we keep up with our system. Have you developed a similar system for your family? I like to think the fresh fruits and veggies, and a constant stream of probiotics from daily yogurt, are helping boost their little immune systems.
