Keeping kids healthy - Pfizer Pediatric Giveaway

This post may be sponsored. 

No one likes it when their children are sick. We recently had twin boys in January. It was just in time for flu season. All moms and newborns are paranoid about their babies getting sick and we had two to worry about.  Having twins is difficult. The last thing I would want is sick twin infants. With two older kids in school we were extra careful to try and keep all the kids healthy. We managed to avoid the flu but not several different colds that ran to the house. Poor Bubby had a cough for weeks.  He seems to go through this every year. He will get a typical cold with a cough and the cough just does not go away. He ends up miserable and has to use an inhaler.  This year he had the worst runny nose he's ever had.  It was during Spring Break too.

Here are some tips to help keep your family healthy.

Wash your hands frequently. Wash hands for at least 20 seconds. I know I'm guilty of not washing my hands long enough. 20 seconds seems like nothing until you're washing your hands and then it seems like forever when kids are waiting for you. Singing Happy Birthday will help you wash your hands long enough.
Use hand sanitizer. All teaching, I don't always have time to stop and wash my hands throughout each class. I always keep hand sanitizer on hand for me and for students. Since having the twins, I have hand sanitizer in the car when I pick up my older kids from school.

Clean your work area and/or home frequently. Write down your work area with antibacterial wipes or sprays. In the middle of flu season, I try to remember to disinfect my classroom and home as much as I can.

Change your clothes when you get home. When my two older kids were babies the first thing I did when I got home was change my clothes. After teaching 100 + kid today, I worried about what was lingering on my clothes. I have my older kids take a shower shortly after getting home. It saved us from the shower fight at night and get it done early.

Keep a supply of cold medication in case you do get sick.  Running out to pick up medicine while sick or with a sick kid is never fun at all.  Go to Target early and stock up on medicines that you know you will need.  Always be sure to check dosing information carefully.  Check with your pediatrician especially for infants.
