I participated in a
campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Little Remedies.
I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional
item as a thank you for participating.
You’ve heard that saying – “Less is More” – Do you agree with that statement?
I’ve been invited to take the “Say Yes to Less” Pledge with Little Remedies. I’ve said YES to “Less Distractions” by limited my computer time at home. My son and husband will love this. It seems I’m upstairs on the computer way more than I should be, so for the next 30 days, I’ll be limiting my time from the computer on weekends and nights. Won’t you take the “Say Yes to Less” Pledge too? There are other Pledges to take, such as less sugar for you family, less waste and a couple more.
me, “Less is More” is how I live my life now. See, back in 2009 I vowed to never eat fast
foods again when one evening I was bent over and couldn’t move – thought I needed to go
the emergency room right then and there because I was in such stomach pain. Well, I
waited it out and felt better the next day. I knew it was because of
the way I was eating. Though I can’t say I never eat at those types
places now, but I do limit my visits to about twice a month if that. So
naturally when we got Brody (almost 4 years ago) I knew he would only
get the best foods from me. I know that processed foods, sugars, salt, and all
those extra additives aren’t good for me, so why would I feed them to
I now take it a step further and try to only buy medicines and vitamins and such that are as natural as possible for you. I also, for the most part buy and use household products that are all natural. Though, I don’t quite follow that to a tee, I do read my labels on everything and choose what’s best for my family.
As I’m typing this post, my son is laying on the coach coughing his head off. I’ve done all I can for him. I’m giving him breathing treatments, rubbed ointment on his chest (my momma did for that us), and gave him some OTC medicine that I thought would help. I was going to Walmart this morning, but he does not need to be out in this weather and my husband is out of town. Hopefully, we can go tomorrow and if so, I’ll be reading the backs of cough medicines for him as that’s one product we don’t have in the house at the moment. Well, we got to go and look what I picked up!
When choosing this cough medicine, I was looking for no artificial flavors or colors, no alcohol, no bad sugars and additives, no dye and natural flavors. There was a few others I considered, but Little Remedies was my choice today. Believe it or not, Walmart was just about out of them too!
Of course then there’s germs we have to watch out for. When shopping at stores, I immediately reach for those wipes that are provided for us to wipe down carts. Isn’t that the best thing supermarkets have come up with? I wonder who actually came up with that!! Here’s some other tips I have to help prevent that awful cold bug or the flu to creep up on my little one.
- Wash child’s hands several times a day…with soap!
- Carry baby wipes in your car; take inside restaurants and wash off table
- Take advantage of those wipes that are in stores to wipe off carts – slide it across all bars in cart
- Clean your child’s fingernails often; don’t forget to cut them regularly
- Don’t lay your Kleenex around – throw away immediately (yes, I’ve done that…gross!)
- Wipe down those toilets…especially if you have boys! Yours and other places
Little Remedies is an excellent choice when choosing what OTC medicines to give your child. What ever you do choose, please consider reading the ingredients and choose one that’s best for your family.
Don’t forget to take the Little Remedies Pledge “Say Yes to Less”.
