Make Sure You Are Prepared For The Cold Season With Pfizer Pediatric Products From Target #SickJustGotReal

***CLOSED*** Winner is LaTanya. Congrats~! 

It's Spring and we are in full bloom over here. Aside from seasonal allergies, we know our little ones can suffer from colds just as well. Sick happens without any warning it seems. Your child can go from energetic and happy, to sniffling and coughing within a matter of hours. It is very important that we have medications on hand for those unexpected cold symptoms. Good thing we can rely on the Pfizer pediatric line of products to get our little ones through it all. We can't go without those well-known, trusted brands like Children's Advil®, Children's Robitussin®, and Children's Dimetapp®. They are all available at your local Target stores and are reasonably priced.

Keeping these items on hand along with a couple extra boxes of tissues and a digital thermometer in your medicine cabinet is helpful. There is nothing worse than having a sick child late at night and not being prepared!

Information about Pfizer Pediatric products available at Target:

Ease those aches and pains, while reducing a child’s fever fast with Children’s Advil®, a great solution for kids as young as 2 and up to 11.

Prepare For Cold & Flu Season With The Exergen Smart Glow TemporalScanner

With the holiday season behind us, many people are stocking up on all of the necessities to help battle against cold and flu season. The weather has taken a huge turn from the mild temperatures and we are feeling the deep chill of winter. We always have items like cold medicine, fever and headache reducers, assorted teas, and vitamin supplements on hand. The latest addition to our medicine cabinet is the Exergen Smart Glow TemporalScanner. This thermometer is unlike the old school digital ones that are sometimes tricky to use or provide inaccurate results.
The Smart Glow thermometer works by pressing a button and passing the top area over your child's (or your) forehead and boom, the temperature is revealed within seconds. The beeping sounds will indicate when it's done. Seriously, this would make any parent's life easier. You can even use it on your child while they are sleeping. Why didn't I have something like this when my kids were babies?
The display is illuminated, so this means you can check your child's temperature in any lighting. The days of making your kid sit still or hold a thermometer under their tongue is over! Let's not even go there with the rectal thermometers from the infant stages.  I love this even for myself. It's such a convenient and accurate way to monitor fevers. I've seen one similar in the doctor's office and was very impressed. I remember my reaction after seeing the temperature revealed so quickly being like, "Wait, that's it?!" Now I can feel like I have something comparable to what many nurses in doctor's offices are using. I'm telling you, once you have used this fabulous thermometer, you will never be able to go back to the old school ways. This says a lot coming from a very old-fashioned person like myself.

Some facts about the Exergen Smart Glow TemporalScanner:

The TemporalScanner™ comes with four ways to make it even easier to take a temperature:

· A softly illuminated display for easy reading in any light – perfect for checking the temperature of a sleeping infant in a darkened room

· Beeping sound indicating scanning can be turned off or on to avoid waking a sleeping child

· Automatically retains the last eight temperature readings for instant recall to check on fever progression

· Ability to switch between Fahrenheit and Celsius modes

Made in the United States, the Exergen Smart Glow TemporalScanner™ is the number one preferred thermometer by both nurses and pediatricians, and is backed by more than 55 clinical studies proving its accuracy.

It is sold at major retail stores including Wal-Mart, Target, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Costco, Babies “R” Us, Toys “R” Us, Kroger and BJ’s. The Smart Glow thermometer retails for $49.99. Trust me, it is well worth the money. This would make a great gift for expectant parents. As a matter of fact, if you are expecting a baby, you should add this on your gift registry.

If you'd like more information about the Exergen thermometer, check out their website and follow them on Facebook and Twitter for product tips and promotions. I wish you all well during this cold and flu season.

Golden Blossom Honey - Perfect for the cold and flu season

Every person in my household has been sick over the course of the last 5 weeks. It seems like the cold germs keep on getting passed around and it has been hectic. Being a homemaker and mom of 3, I knew it was going to hit me. I can always tell by that uncomfortable tickle in my throat. I received a bottle of Golden Blossom Honey to review at the right time. I immediately made a cup of Earl Grey tea sweetened with the Golden Blossom honey and a few splashes of lemon juice. The honey had a wonderful, rich taste and was very soothing going down. One of the things that made me feel good about this honey is that it is a product of the U.S.A.. 
Thankfully I am feeling a lot better, but I will keep this recipe in mind for the future, just in case...
