Spring is almost here and I couldn’t be happier. It’s been a rough winter with me getting sick. I’ve had two different viruses that were either the flu or very similar. Two of my little ones have had it, too. Again now, I hear of how the flu is going around. It just seems to be never ending. Spring…yes, spring. Thoughts of happier, warmer and healthier days will be upon us soon! But, with the sick season still here we have to think of things like the best way to stay hydrated when sick. It’s a real concern.
As I write this I’m fighting off some type of virus. For the past several days I’ve had a head cold and I’ve been dragging. One thing that concerns me the most when sick is staying hydrated. What is the best way to stay hydrated when sick? I was recently sent some samples of a new product called DripDrop that are for just that – staying hydrated. They are a medical grade solution that provides a simple, cost-effective solution that empowers everyone to treat mild to moderate dehydration at home. You simply add the packet to water and drink up! It’s also safe for children!
It’s not always easy to recognize the symptoms of dehydration in children, which makes it even more scary. The symptoms can be things as simple as dry lips, thirst, headaches or even a fever. Having DripDrop on hand is something that’s a must for us now. DripDrop was created by a Mayo-Clinic-trained physician who was tired of recommending poor tasting electrolyte replacement solutions he knew his patients wouldn’t drink. Best of all, my kids will drink it! They don’t mind the taste at all!
DripDrop is conveniently available at your local CVS, Walgreens or HEB. It is available in lemon and berry flavors and DripDrop tastes better than most pediatric solutions, and does not contain any artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives. Amazing, isn’t it?! DripDrop has been shown to hydrate 34% faster than water alone, and 20% faster than pediatric solutions and sports drinks. Make sure you pick some up and keep it on hand for those moments that we hope don’t come: the sick days.
