Not letting a Cold ruin a fun time #NaturallyAtHome

Last week we were on Spring break here. Or March break if you prefer. It did not really feel like it though. We had no major plans and there is so much snow outside. It really kind of snuck up on us this year. 

We hung out as a family, watch some movies and stayed up way too late. My oldest went to a big competition for Track and Field and we took the kids for dinner one night. It was a fun week. Just not very long. Little one was invited to a friends house for a play date. The email came through asking if she could come over. There would be two other girls there and they were going to do some baking. So much fun! We RSVPed she would go and she was thrilled. At five years old she has no understanding of time and kept asking when she would be going. Seemed like three days took forever . The night before she was to go, she got a sniffly nose. I did not want to cancel as I knew if would break her heart. She did not have as fever and seemed to have all of her energy. So I gave her some Orange Naturals Cough and Cold for kids. That night she slept well and the next day I gave her some more. She seemed ok by the time the play date came along. She still had a sniffly nose but it never got any worse. Plus she was able to enjoy her day without being drowsy or feeling yucky. 

When she came home form her friends house she brought a baggy of cookies they made. They were so yummy and she was so proud!

  • Relieves cold symptoms
  • Helps in the treatment of common colds
  • Shortens the duration of colds and upper respiratory tract infections
  • Helps to relieve coughs
  • Reduces symptoms of bronchitis
  • Calms

Little ones March Break was saved thanks to Orange Naturals. She is now planning her next play date with her friends. Maybe dinner and a movie 🙂 

March Break was too short for us. I can not wait for the next break to get some fun family time in. Maybe a three day weekend is in order.

  1. I'm always looking for a safe, natural, effective product to use with my kids. They do seem the pick up every single cold going around when they are young. So glad Little One didn't have to miss her Playdate!

  2. I'm hearing so many good things about Orange Naturals! I'll have to keep this in mind. Luckily we haven't had the cold or flu in our house hold this winter (knock on wood!) but would be handy to keep in the house just in case. 🙂

  3. I love using natural medications, especially when it comes to my older daughter and cold medications. We just got over a week long cold, but next time I will have to keep Orange Naturals in mind!

    I've really got to try Orange Naturals. I much prefer anything natural than OTC or prescription meds.

  5. Sounds like Orange Naturals is EXACTLY what my household needs right now! Gabrielle has been sick for 2 weeks now with a bag cough and Emanuelle started last week. It's Ema's birthday party on Saturday.. sure hope she feels better by then! I'm off to check out Orange Naturals right now! Thanks!

  9. We are lucky (knock on wood) that we had our bad bout of cold and flu back in January/February. I love Orange Naturals cough + cold for kids, it has worked every time! Thanks for sharing your view! 🙂
