5 Tips to Help Comfort Sick Kids

5 Tips to Help Comfort Sick Kids

Mommy (and Daddy) knows best…

When your little one is feeling less than perfect, you feel it too. When they hurt, the whole family hurts which is where these tips were born. Because the sooner they feel better, we all feel better. So, grab some patience, pull up baby’s coziest blanket and favorite book (Green Eggs and Ham works in a pinch), and read on…
  1. Hot Turmeric Milk

Hot Turmeric Milk (aka golden milk) provides a ton of soothing relief when sick (great for adults too!). And kids love the warm, bright color and cinnamon-y good smell. There are lots of great recipes and pre-made mixes out there – here’s an easy one we love. Works on healthy humans too.
  • 1 cup cow or plant-based milk (coconut or almond milk for example)
  • ½ tsp ground turmeric
  • ½ tsp raw cacao powder
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp coconut oil (for better absorption)
  • 1 pinch of freshly ground pepper
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1 to 1 ½ tsp raw honey added off the heat
Allow cooling before serving (makes enough for two!)
  • In a saucepan, heat the milk, spices, coconut oil and vanilla extract (if using) over medium heat.
  • Simmer – do not boil – for about 10 minutes.
  • Add honey off the heat.
  • Allow to cool before serving…makes enough to share!

  1. Sick Kid Toolkit

When dealing with sick kids, I keep a tool kit ready for that first cry. Any cheap plastic tray works – it’s the “ready” part that’s the lifesaver. I keep it IN MY ROOM so I can pop up, grab it, and go, instead of running around a dark house trying to find everything as my sick baby waits. My personal toolkit includes a thermometer, saline mist, tissues, Mommy’s Bliss Gripe Water, acetaminophen/ibuprofen, nose sucker and a bottle of water. I'm ready to spray, suck, wipe and lay back down asap. - Stephanie M (m5-year-old boy)
  1. Bathroom Time

A lukewarm bath helps to manage fever and often provides entertainment and a soothing distraction. Or have story time in the bathroom with the door closed and shower running very hot to create a steamy baby sauna to help with congestion. - Jocelyn L. (mother to two kiddos, ages 3 and 1) …a longer bath time with bubbles, toys, and music, Mommy’s Bliss Saline Mist to soothe irritated nasal passages, and an air humidifier and syringe to help with stuffy noses. I also try offering a lot of water throughout the day. - Karen S. (mother to two kiddos, ages 2 and 5 months).
  1. Doing What You Need to Do

Don't feel guilty about throwing out the rule book! Two hours of Paw Patrol in one sitting totally rules and soothes the sick soul. - Also, Jocelyn
  1. You Got This

When it comes to sick babies and kids, Mommy really does know best. We’d love to hear your tricks and tips, favorite books, shows and bubbly bath time distractions. I personally, think bubbles, snuggles and Dr. Seuss work wonders…with a little help from Mommy’s Bliss. Let’s “get well” together. - Jen L. (mom of 2 grown boys – enjoy the snuggles while you can!)
