  • I like the one of adding the flavouring to the medicine.


  • I love the two tissue boxes. Great idea. All fantastic tips.


  • Great tips.


  • Your tips are good.


  • Thanks for the tips – sickness is never a fun time. :(


  • By the onset of signs that a cold/flue it coming ( tickle in the throat, sting in the ear, blocked nose, muscle ache) we do some drops of hydrogen peroxide (3% for kids) in the ears. Also by continuous earaches we repeat it. We have the experience that it kills 4 out of 5 colds in the butt and have reduced the use of antibiotics greatly.


  • argh I am over sickness this year – my two seem to have a constant runny sniffly nose and right now both are suffering from an upper respiratory tract infection so are both on anitbotics – I feel more like a nurse than a mum, and I just know that as soon as they are both feeling better I will come down with something and then the vicious circle will start again!


  • Helpful tips. Having kids around when you’re sick is pretty horrible but having sick kids while you’re sick too is the worst!


  • Thanks for the great tips!


  • So many interesting tips! The one of the tissue boxes is splendid. That way you don’t have to touch used tissues.


  • It’s always hard when children are sick.


  • Great tips for mums with those sick little ones at home!
