Bag of Tricks for Mom’s Sick Day

October 13, 2016


Growing up with allergies I am all too familiar with getting sick and trying to go about my daily life. Over the years I have grown attached to certain remedies that can be found at any drug store. These are my go items that save the day:

  1. Zyrtec: I didn’t try Zyrtec until I was pregnant and my doctor recommended it. It was an instant love connection and has saved me from missing out on so many events. Instead of lying in bed sneezing my head off all day, I just take a Zyrtec and go on with my day. (Of course, check with your doctor before trying Zyrtec.)
  2. Breathe Right Nose Strips – Extra: I have been using these for over a decade and I couldn’t even imagine not keeping one in my purse for emergencies. For the longest time I just used the regular ones but the Extra is where it’s at. I will sleep with one on if I am congested, and I also keep one in my bag for on the go because even though you look like you just a nose job, at least you have sinus relief. (I usually just wear it in the car, and take it off before running in to places.)
  3. Arm & Hammer Simply Saline: This is the last piece of the puzzle. Pop the cap, spray, and wallah, instant relief. I have tried so many nose solutions and this is the only one that works well enough for me to use. It’s also incredibly easy to transport which is a huge plus.
  4. Electrolytes: Any excuse for a pineapple Vita Coco, but really the most important thing is that you are staying hydrated. When I don’t feel 100% I usually want anything but water so I lean towards vitamin water or coconut water.





Funny enough and the reason for this post is I’ve been carrying around these 4 items in this clutch for the past few days and my husband keeps calling it my bag of tricks because I’m on the verge of getting sick but fighting it so so so hard with these 4 magic items. Hope everyone reading this is healthy and next time you are sick maybe one or all of these items will come to the rescue!

  1. I hate being sick and it always seems to happen at the same time as my little guy. So we always end up being sick together. These are some great ideas! I never even thought about using Saline Spray. I’ll have to try that next time. Thank you so much for sharing these. I hope you have managed to fight off the yuckies! 🙂
