This Cold Hit Hard, And This Mom Hit Back with Vicks DayQuil & NyQuil
Last week my kids started to act crankier than normal. I should have seen the downward spiral coming a mile away! We just missed catching the flu this year, but an early Spring cold hit our house hard. After nursing my little ones through runny noses, coughs and fitful nights' sleep this mama got sick herself.
I know. I took precautions, I tried hard to remind everyone to wash their hands, cough into their elbows and not share food or drinks. I also kept the kids out of the kitchen as much as possible and went around and cleaned door knobs, light switches and surfaces daily. But, after a few sleepless nights and the inevitable cough or sneeze straight to my face (aren't little kids great about that?) I caught the same germs and went down for the count.
Now, moms aren't given sick days. I can't crawl back in back and pull the covers over my head - even when I want to. Actually a nap is a rare occasion around here. Instead I stock my medicine cabinet with a healthy supply of Vicks NyQuil and DayQuil. If you are thinking, "do I see 3 bottles in there?" Yes, the answer is absolutely! Vicks NyQuil is a product I have relied on for years to help me get through a rough night when I have a cold or the flu.
This cold came with full body aches, a sore throat and lots of coughing! Being uncomfortable usually keeps me from a good night's sleep, so taking NyQuil insures that I will be comfortable to get the sleep my body desperately needs.
Of course, my symptoms were also present during the daytime. Feeling fatigued, coughing and battling a sore and itchy throat I turned to DayQuil for the non-drowsy relief I needed. Who has time to be sleepy when the kids are on the mend and whirling around the house like little tornadoes?
Vicks DayQuil is the #1 pharmacist recommended brand for adult cough/cold/flu relief and I know why. I appreciate that it relieves my symptoms without leaving me groggy or falling asleep.
This mom is happy to finally be on the mend. My house didn't fall apart around me and I stayed upright and productive. All of this is thanks in part to Vicks NyQuil and DayQuil which helped me over the worst of my Spring cold.
Remember, when using DayQuil/NyQuil be sure to follow the usage guidelines for warnings and dosage directions or visit http://www.vicks.com for more information.
