When you think of winter time, what are the first words that come to mind … darkness, cold, gloomy and sickness are mine.

Top of that list is sickness, it happens the minute the temperature begins to change. I start hearing sniffling, sneezing and coughing around my house and that’s when the tissues, wipes and sprays come out. There really is nothing worse than watching your little one’s sad because they are achy, tired and they can’t breathe because their noses are all stuffed up.

After my little guy was born, 1 week later he got a cold (not shocking considering his brother was constantly sick and in his face staring at him, in fact I am pretty sure I remember him sneezing right on his newborn baby brother). The poor little thing was so stuffed up and I was beside myself because he couldn’t sleep. I knew there were saline products that I could buy, but I was too scared to use them on this tiny little being given his nose was the size of a peanut. After a few sleepless nights, I was fed up and went to the pharmacy and picked up a bottle of hydraSense Ultra-Gentle Mist Spray (why I chose that brand over many of the others: for one I knew the brand name and secondly there was a baby right on the package so I guess I figured I couldn’t have gone wrong) and a hydraSense Nasal Aspirator kit with the Easy Dose Vials. I handed it to a family member and begged her to do it for me because I was too scared … after all the aspirator is a little intimidating when using it for the first time. You can online imagine what I was thinking when I was looking at it.

HydraSense Aspirator

After a few minutes of tears (him not me), he was no longer stuffed up and a happy kid again. The next day when he needed to be cleared up again, I decided I was going to take matters into my hands and use the aspirator. Don’t judge, but listening to the sound of what was coming out of his nose at that given moment gave me such gratification because I knew how uncomfortable he felt (we have all been there) and he would be happy within a matter of minutes.

After a dose of hydraSense

When he was a little older (and not so newborn), I started to use the Nasal Ultra-Gentle Mist Spray on him which I tried on myself first just to get an idea of the feeling and how strong the pump mist was and he took it like a champ!

Why I love hydraSense
– hydraSense helps reduce and relieve nasal congestion caused by a cold
– it is has a gentle mist
– it can be used 4-6 times a day when baby’s nose is blocked
– a simple yet effective solution to help your sick little one
–  the solution is 100% natural-sourced undiluted seawater
– my unhappy baby instantly smiled minutes after using it on him (that’s worth everything)
– the spout is thin for easy placement

Tis the Season of Runny Noses #BoogieWipes #Giveaway

Boogie Wipes

I feel like I should be a spokesperson for Boogie Wipes because I LOVE them and have been using them for over 5  years on all the runny noses in my house! In fact, in winter I don’t leave home without a pack in my purse or bag because my kids have runny noses ALL winter! The minute that cool air hits my kids nose faucet turns on and there is no turning back. So if you are ever at a kids event or party with me and you need a Boogie Wipe, feel free to find me.

In the last two months, my mini has been sick three times and due to my extreme laziness (it’s winter give me a break) I had to use normal tissue because we ran out of our Boogie Wipes and let me tell you, that didn’t work out so well. After a day of constantly wiping his nose, it got so raw underneath and he would cry anytime I went near him with a tissue to wipe what seemed like Niagara Falls coming out of his nose.
Epic Mom fail!

Reason #1 to stock up with Boogie Wipes … your kid will end up love them too.

Boogie Wipes

What I love about Boogie Wipes
– Boogie Wipes are moistened with saline which actually helps break down those Boogies
– Moisturizes with Aloe, Vitamin E and Chamomile
– The wipes themselves are SUPER soft
– They come in great little travel packs with a hard cover so they don’t dry out
– Comes in three scents (well two really as one is unscented): Grape and Fresh Scent (Fresh Scent is my fave)

The Mist with a Twist #BoogieMist

Boogie Mist

Since my littlest one was born, I don’t think a month has gone by where he has not gotten a cold (thank you to his older brother who is a petri dish and brings home every little germ). Like any parent, I hate seeing him uncomfortable because he can’t breathe out of his nose and of course extremely miserable because of lack of sleep. I am no better when I am sick and at least I can blow my nose!

Over the years, in true Terri fashion, I have bought many saline sprays to test for my little ones (all of which I have used on myself first) and the spray’s were all seriously intense so I stuck with nose drops (which suck for the little guys) … until now!

I recently had the opportunity to try Boogie Mist from one of my favourite well know brands, Boogie Wipes and it’s perfect.

Why I love Boogie Mist
– most importantly it is a very light, gentle mist which won’t startle your little one when sprayed
– comes in two scents, fresh and grape (I really like the fresh – I just want to eat the grape .. weird i know)
– reasonably priced at $8.00
– uses natural saline spray which helps break up the boogies
– the mist applicator is scented (just an added little touch)

 Where to Buy: Toys R US

Happy breathing
