Winter will soon be here and the best way to stay ahead of winter illness is to prepare a sick basket. I have been creating a sick basket since Peyton was little. In early November I head out to the store and stockpile on supplies that I may need during an illness. I am sure to be prepared in case an emergency strikes. I guess preparing in advance goes back to my days as a girl scout. It is always better to be prepared. I can’t tell you how many times having a sick basket prepared has saved us.
How To Prepare For Winter Illness – Create a Sick Basket!
Purchase an inexpensive basket at the dollar store and then fill it with medicines that your children would need during an illness.
Items to include:
- Cough Medicine
- Cough Drops
- Nasal Saline
- Chicken Soup
Hopefully you won’t have to use it but in case you do you will have everything located in one place.
