After a week of taking care of two sick kids, something handmade to make that process easier is pretty much all I can think about. Summer colds are the worst, but these great etsy finds could make nursing kids with even the yuckiest colds a breeze.
Monster Swipers from Frank and Me are so cute and utterly useful. Never have to say “don’t use your shirt,” again!
Just grab one of Daisy Creek’s Boo Boo Birdies from the freezer or pop one into the microwave and your baby bird’s tweet will turn sweet in no time.
The best cure for the doldrums, Dr. Doc, Nurse Kay, and patient Ernest from Angelo’s Play House are a great way for any kid to pass those last few days of too-sick-to-go-out-but-too-well-for-sleep.
Hand Knit Hugs’ wool baby slippers are perfect for keeping your sick kiddo’s toesies warm. We’re a big fan of hydrotherapy, so these would be great!
Warm baths are great for breaking up chest congestion. Wrap your grumpy gus in one of these Hooded Towels from 5 Little Piggies. At least the towel will be snuggly soft even if your kiddo isn’t.
Swim the soap over your baby and perhaps swipe a snoot and steal a smile with these Fishy Fish cotton bath mitts from Surly Sheep.
Help your babe sleep with this Cold and Cough Balm from Shayna Punam. Sleep, hmmm, I think I remember what that is.
Frank and Me also make these super cool cape blankets perfect for fighting the flu super hero style!
Boppie’s Kids toys look perfect for cuddling and carrying around, plus hippos make kids happy!
