Tips for Cold & Flu Season

By  | Last Updated:  

Tis the season for sniffles, colds and.. (ick!) the flu. If you’re like me, you’re taking measures to keep your family healthy and happy. The Moms Check In crew started chatting this week about our families’ favorite tips that we’ve had success with — and decided to share them with you!

Tips for Fighting the Cold & Flu

Amanda: I’m a big advocate for vitamin C! Breakfast always starts with a big glass of orange juice in our house. At the first sign of a cold we are sure to have an extra vitamin. And speaking of extra…extra hand washing is always a big plus!

Jenni: We struggle so much with allergies this time of year, and of course with the kids back in school – germs are everywhere. Keeping antibacterial cleaners around always helps. Spraying door knobs, cabinets and refrigerator handles, and anything else that gets touched alot. We also run a humidifier to keep moisture in the air in the winter months.

Stephanie: I’m uber aware of germs this time of year as the weather starts to change. To help avoid any in our house, I make sure we’re eating healthy and drinking plenty of water to help boost our immune systems. We also do a lot of hand washing. If we do get the sniffles, I love using Boogie Wipes because they are gentle on the skin while they tackle the snotties.


With the germy and snotty season upon us, Boogie Wipes comes to the comforting rescue! When you’re wiping noses 20 or more times a day – nothing is better than a Boogie Wipe because they’re made to be super gentle on little noses.

Boogie Wipes are gentle and natural saline wipes that dissolve boogies caused by the common cold or allergies.  They’re developed by moms just like you and me — moms that are tired of chasing down runny noses. They’re extra soft, hypoallergenic, phthalate, paraben, AND alcohol free. No more sore noses!

Stephanie is in love with a boy named Sam. He has taught her that it’s okay to jump first and look later, to wear a dirty shirt to the park and to decide that today is a good day to take a nap in your rubber boots. She hangs out here blogging at Spaceships and Laser Beams and at our printable party shop on Etsy.
