Escaping Old Patterns to Become a Better You


Swine Flu: A Guide for Parents
This is an article from Parenting magazine that is quite informative about the topic.

Hyland's Cold'n Cough 4 Kids- I saw this ad recently and I thought to share it with you. It's a 100% natural multi-symptom cold relief medicine. I'm definitely considering trying this for my son when he gets a cold again. Talk to your doctor about it.
I've used Calms Forte that is also from Hyland that helps with restlessness.

Sinupret- I bought this because I didn't want to keep giving my son Claritin whenever his sinuses were out of control. I was watching TV and saw the ad for Sinupret. It promotes clear nasal passages as well as being an immune booster. Best part, it's natural. I have used it a couple of times, and it seems to work. Run it by your pediatrician before using it especially if your child is highly allergic (could be allergic to the ingredients).

Little Allergies- This is a drug-free allergen blocker. Read the details and share it with your pediatrician.
