A Mother’s Touch

I don’t know about you, but it seems we can never avoid catching a cold and getting sick during the cold winter months (especially December through March)! And Cannon usually gets a cough that seems to stick around forever! Vicks® VapoRub™ is something we always keep on hand in case we need it and Cannon turned two this past fall so I finally decided to try it on him.

Cannon is a mama’s boy (I absolutely love it!!!) but I hate it when he gets a cough because I feel like there’s nothing I can do to help take the pain away. I’ve been applying the Vicks® VapoRub™  to his back before bedtime and get some extra snuggles in! Even though I hate when my kids are sick, I love those special moments we have together. The medicated vapors can last up to 8 hours and I always notice a difference in Cannon’s cough quickly after we apply it! When his cough is really bad, I’ve applied it directly to his chest. I love it because it offers easy and quick application, and I feel like we really bond when we use it.

I’m so glad Cannon is finally old enough for it because it is definitely my go-to and it’ll be a product that stays in our home forever!

Do you use Vicks® VapoRub™ ? Do you love it as much as we do?!

  2. I agree Vicks is great. When my kids are suffering with a persistent cough I rub Vicks on the soles of their feet and then put socks on them … quiets a cough within socks and helps them sleep through the night .
