5 Ways to Protect Your Child in Flu Season

5 ways to protect your child in flu season | Scandinavian pastel shared kids room

As much as I love this magical time of year, what I absolutely hate is that it coincides with flu season. As anyone with young kids can attest, they’re usually the first to get sick and seemingly pick up every single virus floating around. They touch everything, including each other, and are still learning proper hygiene. Especially now with Isabelle in Kindergarten and exposed to 25 other kids for 6 hours every single day, we’ve spent plenty of time already out of commission because of the flu. Luckily there are steps you can take to help prevent your kids from catching the flu. Read on for my top 5 tips (and an extra special giveaway)!

5 ways to protect your child in flu season | Scandinavian pastel shared kids room

[ 1 ] Get the flu shot

Vaccinations are a polarizing topic in the world of parenting. Personally, I’m all for them. Whilst we’ve never done the flu shot prior to this year, we decided to go for it this winter season because Isabelle started her first year of Kindergarten and I just know we’re going to be battling constant sickness as it is. According to the CDC, the flu shot is about 40-60% effective, which is a lot better than nothing if you ask me. Length of illness can also be shorter and symptoms milder with the flu shot than without.

[ 2 ] Avoid sick people

It might seem harsh, but having a strict “no sick guests” policy in place during the flu season will help a lot, as will avoiding visiting people who are sick themselves. That might mean cancelled play dates but those two hours of playtime are not worth the week of sick kids that will most likely come of it, since young kids touch everything. Conversely, keep your kids home when they’re sick. Just like you appreciate parents who keep their kids at home to avoid getting yours sick, return the favour when you’re the one with germ covered kiddos.

[ 3 ] Keep hands + shared objects clean

This is definitely the most important time of year for hand washing. Teach your children proper hand washing, meaning soap and lots of scrubbing (for approximately 20 seconds or one round of singing “Happy Birthday”). When the flu has been brought into your house, wiping down common surfaces like handles, countertops, etc. can help you to avoid getting the rest of the family sick. And bring hand sanitizer and wipes with you to clean shared objects like shopping carts before you or your kids use them or to wipe down hands after touching things like elevator buttons.

[ 4 ] Humidify your home

There’s a lot of scientific evidence that points to the flu virus surviving best in low-humidity environments (source). That’s one of the reasons why it spreads so well in the winter, when the air indoors is so dry. So make sure to keep your home nice and humid to avoid it becoming a flu breeding ground. We have the Dyson AM10 Humidifier and it is ah-ma-zing. Seriously. It monitors the moisture in your home and delivers even humidity year-round. It has Ultraviolet Cleanse technology which kills 99.9% of bacteria (so good!). Plus there are no blades and the air that comes out is cool so it’s safe to have around young kids. Right now you can save $100 off the Dyson Humidifier at Best Buy so run! (Sale ends on Dec 7th.)

[ 5 ] Eat healthy and get enough exercise

One of the best lines of defence when it comes to avoiding germs is make sure everyone in your family is healthy. That means eating plenty of fruits and vegetables and getting enough exercise. The healthier you are, the better you are able to ward off anything that comes your way, like the flu virus. So don’t skip those trips to the park just because it’s cold out.

Great tips! And thank you for mentioning the second one- I think this is very important, and shouldn’t come off harsh. It may mean laying low a little more in the winter, but it’s helping everyone out in the end! Sick kids/households are no fun 🙁
Stay in until you’re feeling better if you can!

Eating healthy is our number one! Making sure the little ones belly are full of nutritious food! Always washing their hands, even if they didn’t use the bathroom, just washing their hands throughout the day! I have a new born so clean hands is a priority for the little ones to touch her or play! Keeping the house sterile and clean! Beneficial plants to help keep the air healthy and clean! Humidifiers in the bedrooms to have fresh air to breathe at night when it can get stuffy! Dress cozy for the cold weather outside! Lots of fresh air is good but dress accordingly.

Great post! We try so hard to avoid any viruses. We just placed our first doterra order and we plan to do that in the winter months as well as opening windows for about 10 mins a day to get a cool breeze and fresh air circulating in the house. We also change our furnace filter more than often. Cold/fx is our go to as soon as we feel anything coming on. And if we do we put peppermint/ eucalyptus and tea tree oil drops in the steaming shower. Eating healthy is a huge benefactor too and lots of vitamin c and d! Good luck to everyone! ♡

Great post! There is no miraculous way to save your child from flu if they go to school. At least you : wash their hands as soon as they arrive home and get in new clothes, eat healthy and drink a lot of water, and have a good temperature during winter (not too hot, not to cold (20-21C) and at least 30% humidity). And good luck 🙂

My 9 month old twins have just survived their first colds. I learned a lot as a new mom about taking care of them! One of the best things that worked for us was a eucalyptus and tea tree oil rub that we put on the bottom of their feet and chest. Bonus: they loved the massage before bed time as well! We also used nasal spray mist for the first time. They hated it at first but the more we used the more comfortable they got. It helped to break up the mucus in their nose! Thanks for the post! We could have used a humidifier in their room 😉

Great post! We have two young girls, and 3.5 and 15 months. After Liv just turned one both returned to day care this September and me back to work… As an elementary teacher. So I am also well exposed to every virus that exists during this wretched season! Most recently, I’ve jumped on the essential oil diffusing band wagon because I would do ANYTHING to avoid a bug. On top of the kids being down and out, I have to spend hours planning to be away from work which makes it it incredibly difficult to be away. When it’s 6 pm and a fever starts up, I know my night is spent anticipating being away. I do have a small humidifier but I don’t run it as often as I should. Well also have hot water heat which is less dry compared to forced air. Anyway, I love any tips for keeping away the viruses that make us all want to stay home forever.

As a kindergarten teacher with school age children, we are around our fair share of germs! Proper hand washing is a must, teaching kids to cough and sneeze into their elbow rather than their hands is also important to slow the spread of germs. We get the flu shot every year and to help my kids get lots of fruits and veggies we make smoothies daily. We use an essential oil diffuser with a protective blend all winter and it doubles as a small humidifier too!

Hi there! First off I’m a huge fan of yours. So hi! Haha.
For the holiday season how do we protect from the flu season? Well first off humidify our Home we’re very into essential oils (well I am). I have a 9 month old baby girl so I’m very into the natural oils and I will not give her the flu shot this year. I’ve been very hesitant to do so but I’ve come to conclusion that I don’t need too. She’s had enough needles endless to say. Another way to protect during flu season is hand sanitizers. I’m obsessed with those and have them almost everywhere in my house especially for those who want to come visit us at home.

All of your points plus a little bit of practicing the art of being a hermit (every now and then)… We live in a small town and whenever the flu season breaks out, almosy every family gets it and the cycle never seem to be broken due to being sick and out in the public.
