Keep a Humidifier Handy In Your Home ( Momimhar posted on January 9th, 2017 )

It is always during the fall and winter seasons when allergies hit my household.  I know it is normal but I admit it is very irritable.  What should we do to reduce or perhaps prevent allergies and sickness from getting worse? Stock up allergy medicines in our medicine cabinets, exercise more weekly, eat more vegetables and fruits, drink lots of water daily, and get a lot of rest whenever there’s a chance.  These are very helpful.  But winter time is not very friendly when it comes to health issues.  This is the time we get struck with common respiratory sickness like cough and colds.

Air-conditioning sometimes doesn’t help on this depending on the level of humidity inside our homes.  I am glad that the use of a humidifier can help balance the humidity level in the house.  The very first humidifier my dear husband and I bought three years ago was an invisible mist humidifier.  A couple of things I didn’t like about that one were buying filters and loud sound in the room.

I am thankful that Influenster has given me the opportunity to try Vicks EasyFill Cool Mist Humidifier for free.  It was one of the amazing gifts I received in December 2016.  It came just in time because we needed a new humidifier in the house.  We haven’t had a cool mist humidifier before.

Pros

Quiet operation

Easy Fill

Easy to clean

Lightweight

No filters needed

Requires demineralization cartridge (hard water)

Cons

Bigger than the average-sized humidifiers

A little pricey

If you want a quiet humidifier and you don’t want to buy filters more often, I recommend Vicks EasyFill Cool Mist Humidifier.  As for me and my household, this device is very helpful.  I have a child who is very sensitive to low humidity so I say this product is a keeper.

Does The Amber Teething Necklace Comfort Your Child? ( Momimhar posted on January 25th, 2016 )

Baltic Teething Beads Necklace For Infants

Baltic Amber Teething Necklace For Infants

I wish I learned about this Baltic Amber Teething Necklace five years ago. I just found out about it when one of my friends who had a new baby few months ago bought one of these for her little girl.  It says it soothes an infant’s teething discomfort just by wearing the necklace or wearing it as a bracelet.  The natural succinic acid contained on the amber helps sooth the discomfort of teething.  But how?

I thought the baby has to stick the necklace in the mouth like the other teethers to sooth the swelling gums, but NO.  Silly me.  It doesn’t work like that.  The amber works wonders, I think.  Any how, this is an ideal gift for Christening and souvenir, too.

Remember that using this product should be under adult supervision.  Never let baby sleep with this necklace on.

How about you?  Did you or someone you know have used or are using Baltic Amber Teething Necklace for their teething babies?

Baby Proofing Your Home: Simple Tricks You Can Do Today ( Momimhar posted on January 12th, 2016 )

Your home may seem safe to you, but it is likely a dangerous place for babies. That is why baby proofing is an important step that parents of all experience should take. Unfortunately, some people don’t get their home ready for a baby because they think it takes too much time and money. This just simply isn’t true. In fact, below are a few simple tricks that you can do today to baby proof your home.

Invest in Finger Shields

Finger shield safety products are these nifty little devices that help prevent a child from getting their fingers pinched or shut in the door. They are relatively inexpensive and easy to install, which means there is really no reason not to have them on all doors in your home.

Use Wash Cloths

That’s right, I said wash cloths. These versatile pieces of fabric are not only for keeping clean, they can help keep doors closed while still allowing babies to turn the door knob. All you have to do is, while closing the door, position a wash cloth between the door frame and the door. Make sure it is on the same side that the door handle is on. You should be able to fully close the door while the wash cloth stays in position. You should test the door a few times by turning the handle and trying to open the door. When you want to open the door, simply pinch the wash cloth tight while you open the door.

Prevent Doors from Slamming Shut

You can easily and quickly use a bit of masking tape and an old towel to keep doors from slamming shut. While this method may not be the most eye pleasing, it is a great alternative for parents on a budget. To start, you will need to position a towel at the top of the door. The towel should be closer to the side with the hinges. You want the door to close most of the way while still staying ajar enough so that fingers cannot be squashed. If you notice that the door is staying open too wide, simply move the towel located at the top of the door further along. You can also cut the towel as needed if it hangs down too low.  Secure the towels corner to the door by adding a bit of masking tape.

Sounds very clever, isn’t it? Baby-proofing made easy and worry-free, yes?

Tips To Get Rid Of Common Colds ( Momimhar posted on June 4th, 2015 )

My darling daughter K has the sniffles.  She actually ran a fever last Friday evening that made us miss the Bible Study.  The fever quickly occurred.  She was sneezing and feeling tired Friday afternoon and that night her body temperature rose suddenly.  I didn’t sleep very well because I was monitoring her temperature.  Gladly there’s a fever and pain reliever in our cabinet.  There was a birthday invitation the next day but we didn’t go because DD was not feeling well.

On Sunday, K was feeling a little lively so we were able to attend another birthday party held on that day.  The sky cleared up which is very nice because it was raining these past two weeks already.  It was sunny and breezy.  K had a wonderful time playing with her friends.

As a parent, we worry a lot when our children gets sick.  Common colds and cough cannot be avoided because we can catch them whether we like it or not.  To get rid of it and to keep it from getting worse, an effective cold medicine and home remedies should be taken.

Home Remedies

Honey Lemon Tea – Hot water, lemon juice, honey, tea (drink every night to sooth the throat and help loosen the mucus)

Orange Juice – Drink one cup of orange daily

Warm Bath – Take a quick warm bath before bedtime to feel fresh (except if running a fever)

Sponge Bath – If you are not feeling well to take a warm bath, a sponge bath will do.  Wet a hand towel with warm water and wipe all over the body.

In addition the above mentioned home remedies, eating more fruits, vegetables, drinking more water everyday, and plenty of rest can help get rid of sickness completely.

Medicine

Cold and Cough – You can buy medicine for cough and colds over the counter.  Always follow the dosage on stated on the label.

Nasal Spray – Nasal sprays are great to sooth the nasal passages.  Nasal passages can get swollen from sneezing and blowing the nose.  Nasal sprays can help moisturize and sooth them.

As of today, my darling daughter is back to her active self.  Though there still coughing here and there but she is getting better and better.  She’s healthy so sickness doesn’t stay long.

Time To Use The Humidifier ( Momimhar posted on November 15th, 2014 )

Humidifier.

Humidifier.

It’s Fall season.  Usually this time of year my daughter and I catches cough and colds.  The humidity is low this time of year.  Also, winter is just a few weeks ahead and we don’t want to get sick during the Holidays.  As of the moment, my darling daughter has the sniffles and cough.  The coughing is bad because it wakes her up at night.  We went to her pediatrician last week to ask what remedy she can recommend since the coughing is almost two weeks now.  She advised Mucinex Multi-symptom for kids 4 and 6 below years old.  So far, colds and the coughing are subsiding.  The medicine is taking effect.

We bought this Pro Care Humidifier last year.  I can say that it is working really well.  It blows invisible mist and the noise is not bothersome.  A full tank of water capacity lasts all day.  That means when I fully fill the tank at about nine o’clock in the evening, I am not filling it again until morning of the next day.  But I only turn the dial on the lowest setting.

In addition to the medicine, I give my daughter some warm lemonade with honey and lots of water.  She also drinks orange juice once a day.  I hope she gets well very soon.
