Every year, during the holidays, Grace and I tend to get sick. We visit family, someone sneezes, and that's it! We're sick for the rest of the holiday season. It never fails.
I knew when Grace started school this year that she would start bringing home all sorts of germs and sicknesses, I just wasn't aware that it would be so often! So far, she and the rest of our household have been sick enough times for her to miss 6 days of school from September through February. Add in the weekends and holiday breaks that we've been feeling under the weather and that's a lot of sick days! In a conversation with a friend, we determined that sharing germs is the main lesson taught to our 5 and 6 year olds in Kindergarten!
Thanks to SheSpeaks along with P&G, we are ready for the next bout of colds & flu with a Vick's DayQuil Severe and NyQuil Severe combo pack!
I don't know about you, but when I am sick, I like to be snuggled on the couch with pillows and blankets with a fire going in the fireplace along with a bunch of other necessities to make me more comfortable while recovering:
- hot tea
- pulp-free orange juice with lots of ice
- old movies
- snow cones for a scratchy throat
- Vick's VapoRub
- of course, chicken soup and lots of rest
The lots of rest portion of that list isn't always realistic, but luckily, Grace can be somewhat sympathetic to mommy feeling yucky. Especially, if she had just recently dealt with a bug herself. Often, she will snuggle with me or play quietly in her room while I have control of the TV for once!
In addition to my home remedy list above, Joe and I have always made sure to keep our medicine basket well-stocked with DayQuil and NyQuil products. Joe prefers the liquid form while I always opted for the gel tabs. So, I was excited to be given the opportunity to try this new maximum strength version.
Vick's NyQuil Severe and DayQuil Severe are available in both liquid and caplet form and are available in a convenient combo pack containing both the non-drowsy and night time relief dosages for temporary relief of common cold and flu symptoms:
- Nasal Congestion
- Sinus Congestion and pressure
- Cough due to minor throat and bronchial irritation
- Minor aches and pains
- Sore throat
- Reduces swelling of nasal passages
- Temporarily restores freer breathing through the nose
- Promotes nasal and/or sinus drainage
Since Vick's NyQuil/DayQuil Severe Cold and Flu Combo Packs are available at Walmart (both online at Walmart.com and in the store), it's easy to stock up on all that you need to get you through the rest of the cold and flu season!
