I feel like this last “flu” season was one of the worst to date! It of course happen to be during the twins’ most fragile months (under 3 months of age) so to say I was on high alert was an understatement. Even so we still caught our fair share of germs including numerous colds and a bout of RSV that landed one of the twins’ in the hospital. I feel like I learned a lot these last few months so I feel compelled to share with you all the 6 cold/RSV products every mom needs for baby when they catch these dreaded germs! I am keeping this simple in hopes that if you ever need it, you can skip right to the basics!

  1. Bbluv Rino Battery Operated Nasal Aspirator – Lets talk snot! If you’ve had a sick baby you know how much of a relief it is to clear their boogery noses and see the instant relief it creates for them. When my baby boy was in the hospital with RSV they used a hospital grade aspirator and I kept joking that I needed to bring that thing home with me. It wasn’t shortly after that that I found this nasal aspirator and it was love at first suction (I’m a mom, come on!!) But seriously, it works so well and doesn’t seem to bother them one bit!
  2. Braun Digital No Touch Plus Forehead Thermometer : You guys! I have owned a ridiculous amount of thermometers and I hated them all UNTIL I found this one. Yes it is best for infants under a year to do rectal temps (which I love THIS thermometer for) I love having a forehead one for my older girls AND to just give me an idea if the babies really do feel warm while sleeping before I wake them up or go through the effort of taking their temp rectally. I also love this case for it because it keeps it safe when not in use.
  3. Nebulizer – Now hear me out here! I know these are typically meant for people who need to use this machine with medicine such as albuterol (which we do use it for with my 4 year old) but the beauty of this machine is that you can also use it with just plain saline! PLEASE talk to a medical professional before doing this with your child but mine suggested that we do saline treatments for the babies when they were super stuffy. It really worked wonders for them! This is the one we have HERE.
  4. Humidifier: Having one in the babies’ room on COOL mist was essential to helping them sleep through the congestion. It is always the first step when one of our little ones start to show signs of a cold! I can’t find our exact one we use (must be that old!) but this one looks similar!
  5. Saline Spray: I definitely prefer spray when it comes to saline as the drops (for me) are just harder to deal with when it comes to little babies. My boys always choked or wound up with it in their eyes when I tried the drops with them. I love THIS brand of saline spray.
  6. bblüv – Igrö Digital Thermometer/Hygrometer: One thing I always am concerned with when my babies are sick (and even when they’re not) is room temperature and this product is meant to show you at a glance if the room is the perfect temperature for your little ones.

Colds are inevitable but I hope these 6 products will help you make it through your next sickness with your little one!

PLEASE note/disclaimer – these are just tips that helped us and you should ALWAYS consult with YOUR pediatrician first!

Pin for later because we all know our babies will get sick one day! Enjoy!

  • It’s an exclusive club and they may be the presidents (in my humble opinion 😍) #thegooddudesclub #raisinggentlemen / @thewishingelephant
  • We’re about a month (month and a half) out from move in of our new home and antsy is an understatement! Things may be kind of slow here over this time as we have to pack up our current home and de clutter like a mofo 😂 So bear with me! I’m also going through and organizing some stuff on my blog to hopefully make my posts more accessible for you all to sort through moving forward. So much fun stuff coming up and I can’t wait to bring it all to you! For now here is the picture that started it all! I shared Joie’s updated nursery featuring her floor bed many moons ago and it blew up. Everyone loved the idea of this floor bed (which is really just a trundle bed with no wheels) and from this I created a blog to dish all the details. And 3.5 years later here we are 🙋🏻‍♀️ Thank you to everyone new and old who has made this journey so much fun! #homewithnoelle #floorbed #montessorifloorbed
  • There’s something about wanting to disinfect and clean my whole house after that run the Flu gave us the last few weeks. #ad That’s about the same time I stock up on all the things from Lemi Shine.  I know I can trust their better-for-you line which gives me the safe ingredients I need for my family but also the power of citric extracts to clean the way I need my surfaces cleaned (and without leaving behind any toxic residues!) Lemi Shine recently launched some of their amazing products at select Publix locations over Florida so make sure to check yours to see if they’re carrying it yet! You definitely will want to give this line of cleaning products a try! #cleanbetterdobetter
  • Finally sharing ALL the details from the boys’ first birthday #ontheblog now 🎉✨ See all the decor, the adorable set up I had for the boys, all the great favors and gifts we were able to donate to toys for tots! It was such a memorable day! #onewildyear #wildonebirthday #twins1stbirthday
  • Getting their new @diono Rainier 2 AXT car seats adjusted before school pickup for the girls and I can’t get over how grown up these little boys are looking 💙💚 They’re both shooting up physically and developmentally and it’s so fun to watch! Also, #twinmoms please send me all the tips on getting them to the car and in their seats safely because switching from infant seats to convertibles with twins has been a learning curve 😂 (note: I realized after this picture that Beau’s headrest needs to be lower) #diono #rainier2axt
