⠀ How to tell it’s the flu ? ➡️⠀ ⠀ The flu and the common cold are both caused by viruses, and the symptoms can be similar -- a stuffy or runny nose, achy muscles, fatigue, a sore throat, fever, or a headache. The biggest difference is how fast your child feels those symptoms -- and how bad they are. ⠀ ⠀ A cold will seem to creep up on him in a few days, but the flu is more like a surprise attack: he’ll feel very sick, very quickly. And while he might run a fever with a cold, the flu almost always causes one, which can make him feel tired, achy, and weak. Kids are more prone to have vomiting and diarrhea with the flu, too. In general, flu symptoms happen throughout the entire body, instead of just in the head. ⠀ ⠀ How to manage symtoms? ➡️⠀ ⠀ 🔺Rest & Fluids⠀ 🔺Ibuprofen for kids 6 months and older⠀ 🔺Tylenol for kids 6 months and younger ⠀ 🔺Cold mist Humidifier in room⠀ 🔺Prescription Medicine ⠀ 🔺Clear nose and mouth of mucus⠀ 🔺Saline mist (Ask provider before using)⠀ 🔺BREASTFEED!!⠀ ⠀ Signs to contact your doctor/911 ASAP;⠀ ⠀ ‼️High Fever for more than 48 hours ⠀ ‼️Signs of dehydration ⠀ ‼️Unusual breathing (wheezing)⠀ ‼️Bluish tint to face or lips ⠀ ‼️Completely “out of it” ⠀ ‼️Not drinking any fluids ⠀ ⠀ How to prevent the Flu: ➡️⠀ ⠀ Anyone who has flu symptoms should not care for a newborn or infant, including feeding. If a person with symptoms must care for the child, the caretaker should use a face mask and wash their hands well. Everyone who comes in close contact with your baby should do the following:⠀ ⠀ Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue away after using it.⠀ Wash your hands often with soap and water for 15 to 20 seconds, especially after you cough or sneeze. You may also use alcohol-based hand cleaners.⠀ ⠀ Source: MedlinePlus.gov⠀
I don’t know how, but my relationship with this guy has grown stronger since his sister entered our world. He’s more loving and helpful and hilarious than ever before. He’s also an absolute terror in some moments, but then he plants a smooch on me and I’m a puddle. #thisistwo
A social worker explained how giving Santa Claus credit for the priciest gifts under the tree, like iPhones and iPads, could actually have an impact on another family's Christmas. Tap the link in bio to read her message and the differing responses to it from parents on Facebook.

5 things no one tells you about nursing school: 1.) Late nights, early mornings. Pre requisites and general education might have been a breeze for you, but once you starting your nursing classes, be prepared to hit the ground running. (Especially those of us, like me, who are in accelerated BSN programs). The curriculum is tough and it requires so much time, energy and effort. BUT- it’s DOABLE. If this is your passion, you make it happen!! 2.) Burnout. Nursing burnout is real. And it’s so prevalent in the healthcare community. Make sure you are taking care of you FIRST. Otherwise, how do you expect to care for your future patients? Get adequate sleep, make sure you’re eating healthy, and get some exercise in! 3.) Money Money Money. Nursing school is NOT cheap. It can even creep up into six figures for some programs. For a lot of people, this is the game changer. Remember this: It’s an investment. Anything worth having in this life requires time (and usually money). Thankfully you’re entering a career where you will ALWAYS have a job and you will be making enough to support yourself and you will be able to pay back those loans. It will take time, but your education is worth it. 4.) Cynicism and dark humor. Oh, believe me. Most of the nurses I’ve met have the best, most cynical humor ever. With the trauma and suffering nurses see throughout their shifts it’s almost impossible to get through it without having some sense of humor. 5.) Friends for life. Nursing is a unique environment. You will meet lifelong friends that cry together, eat together, sleep together, poop together- basically everything. Keep an open mind and have a positive attitude when it comes to making friends.. Also- remember to choose your tribe wisely! Lastly, remember WHY you started this journey. It’s tough and emotional and overwhelming. But I promise you, it will be worth it!!
I just read an hilarious parenting hack and thought y’all may enjoy... it reads: “Sometimes, I put movies on in Spanish and when my kids get confused because they don’t understand, I tell them they must be tired and should take a nap. Then when they wake up, I put the same movie on in English and they think they’re all better”. If your kids know Spanish, try French 😜
Bonjour from Québec ! 👋🏼❤️ Not gonna lie, I saw the gap between the kids in this picture and thought I was missing a child. In my head, I keep counting five babies lately; does that happen to anyone else?? Is that a sign?? 😂🙈😳 . Edited with my free presets. Link in bio to download! ❤️
Just got our @decocrated Winter Box and I’m totally in love with all the selections!Decocrated supports local artists from around the country and brings them to your home. I like the fact that they send out one of a kind pieces that you can’t find at your big-chain retailer. I love the soft knits, vintage icons, and deep pops of color. I’m usually afraid to go out of my comfort zone in terms of color but I really love all the color choices that they included in my box. It’s going to tie in perfectly with my current home decor. They also include 2-3 interchangeable items per box. So, there’s a seasonal message on one side and an “everyday” message on the other. So thoughtful! Use the following codes for a great discount: ⭐️Annual: LIZANDEVERLY30 ⭐️Quarterly: LIZANDEVERLY10 Click the link in my bio for more info. #sponsored#decocrated#idecocrated#winterfeaturedartist @ThePaperieShoppe
PLEASE BE A KIND HUMAN.. I have seen far too much gross behaviour from grown women this past week on social media platforms. We are raising daughters who will see how we behave and I refuse to have my child treated that way in life. It’s truly disturbing to witness how some people can treat others. SO today as a way for me to kick start some loving, kind behaviour I’m going to be giving someone a coffee .. because who doesn’t become a nicer version of themselves with Java 👋🏻 also... these textures and tones are my life now✨
✨ᴇʟ ᴅíᴀ ǫᴜᴇ ʟʟᴇɢᴀsᴛᴇ ᴀʟ ᴍᴜɴᴅᴏ ✨ Decidiste llegar puntual, ni un día antes ni un día después. Justo el día que cumpliste 40 semanas te decidiste a venir al mundo, haciéndonos esperar a toda la familia. Pero llegaste, y de la mejor manera. ¡Me lo pusiste tan fácil! Tuve uno de esos partos que dicen que no pasan. Y tan distinto a lo que cuentan en preparación al parto. Empezando por las contracciones. Ni crecían en intensidad ni en frecuencia. Todo el día con ellas, sí, pero irregulares en todos los sentidos y para mí, apenas dolorosas. Tanto que pensaba que al ir a urgencias nos mandarían de nuevo para casa 🙈 No sé quién se quedó más sorprendido, si el ginecólogo de guardia o yo, cuando nos dijo que estaba de 4cm y en trabajo activo de parto 😅. Entramos a las 00:30 por la puerta de urgencias, y 7h y cuarto después, y gracias a la #benditaepidural, llegaste al mundo en un parto tan tranquilo e indoloro que lo repetiría una y mil veces 🤱🏻. Por ello queríamos algo que nos ayudase a recordar este momento tan especial, y nada más precioso que un mapa estelar de ese 16 de septiembre. Gracias a @mapiful por hacerlo posible. Sin duda el regalazo de estas navidades 🎄. 🎁 Si también queréis el vuestro, podéis aprovechar esta oferta familiar, 25% de descuento al comprar 3 productos o más y envíos GRATIS internacionales. • • • #mapiful#starmap#colaboración#mapaestelar#mapadelasestrellas#newborn#reciennacido#babyboy#maternidadreal#mamarazzi#instamami#babyinspo#momandson#maternidad#motherhood#pequeñosmomentos#coolbaby#clickinmoms#mommiesandbabes#miparto#malasmadres#dogsofinstagram
Aby to tu bylo dostatečně real, tak jedno přiznání: Takhle se na mě usmívala prvních 20minut ráno. 😍 Noc předtím a zbytek dne po tom prořvala. 🙄😂 A je skvělý, že je po tatínkovi, nekonečnej zdroj energie co se neumí unavit! Perfektní... 🙈😂 @jiritkadlcik
