Autumn colds and how to deal with them, kids

The sad autumn season is not only lingering rains, eternal coldness and rustling of dead leaves. Autumn is the time for another cold.

Home prevention

What I do to avoid colds. The first is a walk in the fresh air. In the conditions of the city, however, it does not really help, but still. Let the child rush around in the rustling leaves, collect chestnuts and just enjoy the last relatively warm days.

Further, I am not a minion of wrapping a child in the manner of a bulb. Outside, the temperature is not below zero, in order to dress the son in three sweaters, two pants and winter boots. I remember my mom’s statement – the child needs to be dressed one thing warmer than you dress yourself.

I made sure in practice that the advice was excellent. As an example, I now go out in a sweater and jacket. I wear a child in a sweater and a light jacket. And also a hat (no, not a fur disgrace with pompons made of strings). The child is comfortable and not cold.

And there are moms who probably will not agree with me. Elementary examples I see on the playground near the house. My son happily runs and climbs up the ladders, and his peer stands next to him, because of the abundance of clothes he can’t just bend down and pick up a scoop from the sand. I generally keep quiet about the attempts of this warmed ball to climb stairs.

As for me – it’s just a mockery of a child.

The same applies to home clothes and general life. While the apartment did not include heating, the son walks around the house in a warm sweater and sweatpants. Plus room warm slippers. This is more than enough.

I’m not afraid to open the window to air the apartment. This is useful, and in 5-10 minutes the child will not freeze, especially with its increased activity. He does not sit specifically in the draft. He is constantly moving.

Still warm baths and face washes. I think adults alone know how difficult it is to force yourself to get out from under a warm blanket and go, teeth banging, to take a shower. I force myself. And the son is not against bathing. Such a kind of hardening at home.

If the cold did happen

If I had my way, I would never go to the clinic. But, in the kindergarten, they need a certificate – you have to sit outside the office for an endless queue and then take standard recipes. Everything is as usual – red throat, snot in three streams, cough. I am not talking about something serious right now, but I am only talking about colds.

So, as I remember our trips with a cough to the clinic – our therapist writes out prescriptions in which each drug costs at least 4-5 dollars. And such oh how much for some reason is required. And from the throat, and cough, and from the cold, and antipyretic just in case, and vitamins, and so on. The result, I take to the pharmacy more than $ 20. And I do not draw money.

This is where your grandmother’s recipes go. Remember what we were treated in childhood? Mustard plasters, inhalation of steam over hot potatoes, and probably all the hated radish with scoop (who does not know is goat fat).

I, for the convenience and convenience of the son, modified these recipes a little.

Instead, mustard plasters are perfect mustard powder, poured into socks for the night. Since it is extremely difficult to find a loi today (not every city dweller has a goat at home), he still had to look into the pharmacy. The pharmacist needs to ask the cheapest equivalent of the famous Dr. Theis or whatever it is now fashionable to write out in such cases.

What saves from coughing? We go to the pharmacy and instead of throwing money at the new-fangled funds, we ask everyone since childhood Pertusin. Excellent tool, and it costs – do not believe it – only 50 cents.

With a cold, too, you can fight with improvised means. For example, ordinary table salt is taken, a handful is poured out onto a clean heated pan and heated until it starts to crackle.

Then this white miracle is poured into a clean rag (I took the baby sock for convenience) and cools a little so as not to burn the skin.

Such an easy-to-prepare remedy is placed on the nose of the child for five to ten minutes. It is best to do such procedures in the morning and evening (before bedtime). It helps amazingly.

And how do you fight with children’s colds?
