Amazon Vetted- The Best Health and Wellness Gear
You know that unholy bugger crust that somehow fuses itself to your toddlers face when they have a cold and won't come off with anything? Well, boogie wipes will get it off. They're soft enough that you stand a chance at actually wiping your toddler's nose, and actually getting the boogers off. Trust me, get the three-pack. Only $12 for three.
Drinking enough water is cruicial to health. I LOVE this water bottle. It's double insulated so it doesn't sweat, has a sillicone bottom so it doesn't slip, and they're gorgeous. Similar to the Swell bottles you see everywhere, but much cheaper. We have the 17 and the 25oz, and I prefer the 25oz size so I don't have to refill as often. $35 for the big one.
SADD is, in my opinion, real. So during the winter, I highly recommend this sunlamp. Small enough to sit on your desk, it gives enough rays to boost your mood during the winter. $133
When the first really bad cold hit, and the only thing that got the snot out of there was this. And man was it satisfying. Just don't fool yourself into thinking the tiny sponge will protect you from germs. If you use this, I would just assume you will get sick. But to help your poor snotty baby out (and get some sleep) it's probably worth it. $15.
This is not a medical recommendation because I'm clearly not a doctor. But I really love papaya extract for upset stomachs. A friend turned me onto this, and I used it a lot for nausea during pregnancy, but still use it when I over-indulge (not that I ever do that). $12.
I have LOTS of experience with gassy babies. My oldest would wake up in the middle of the night not to feed, but to be farted. No joke. And this particular brand of gripe water was the only thing that seemed to have any immediate reaction for him. It wasn't a long term fix (I had to cut out dairy...yes, pity me). But on those nights where he was in extreme discomfort, this really seemed to help. Worth the $9.
