Tips On How to Manage Cold & Flu Season {Infographic}

by Nellie

This cold and flu season has been pretty mild on my family so far, but we all know that the danger zone is usually in the colder winter months. A few months ago, I was able to meet Dr. Tanya Altman to discuss some of the signs we should be concerned about with our children.

When I was a first time mommy, I really didn’t know the ins and outs of a basic cold. When my son had fevers I would go crazy googling whether or not I should be waiting it out, or rushing him to a doctor or an ER. Cold and Flu Season can be scary because if you don't make the right decisions at the right time, your child's health could potentially be compromised! Check out these critical tips on when to take your child to the doctor and when you should wait it out.

The makers of Tylenol worked with Dr. Altman to create a simple infographic that you can refer to in times of need just in case your child is sick. Today I am sharing it with you!

I have yet another cold myself right now and Lily has it, too. She started to run a low grade fever on Thanksgiving night and today seems to be fever free finally. We use the doctor’s old tried and true method of switching between Tylenol and Motrin with the girls when they are sick and if they are running really high fevers or just seem really out of it that is when I pay a visit to the pediatrician with them for a bit of piece of mind for me. But thanks for sharing and totally pinned the infographic to refer back to now. Enjoy your weekend!! 🙂

Des has a cold right now! And his last one spread to all of us and his lingering cough lasted for weeks! This one seems more in the nose, so far. We’re a pretty healthy family and we always all get shots. I am concerned, but not outright worried.

You have a right be to concerned!! The cold season has been pretty nasty this year!

Thank you! I am too, too many times I have been googling for dear life!! I usually end up scaring the mess out of myself in the process!

This is such a great tool for moms, especially new ones! I was definitely the mom googling and reading up on everything when I had JR. I did during pregnancy and a little after as well. 🙂 I loved BabyCenter because it was such a good resource and still is. 🙂

Baby center is awesome girl!! I know you are going to be using it a lot (daily!) now. I loved their community boards, due date clubs etc. So great!
