A House Full of Sick People {and What Made it Better}

This past week we all became sick. First Bella on Sunday evening. Then Sam on Tuesday. I caught it on Wednesday. Aches, upset stomachs, raging headaches, and fevers.


By Thursday I was able to get showered and dressed to head out for additional resources. CVS carries a formula for rehydration called DripDrop (find it in the baby aisle & coupon at bottom of post!). DripDrop has 2-3 times the electrolytes and half the calories of sports drinks and hydrates 34% better than water alone. It contains a precise ratio of ingredients to activate fast hydration, so recovery happens quicker.

While Bella’s great about drinking water when she’s sick, she wasn’t eating much food at all. Sam literally spent all day Wednesday in bed. I grabbed the lemon flavor (there is also a mixed berry) and hoped it didn’t have a fake sugar taste – or a gritty one.

It’s about as close to a lemonade flavor as you can get without it being lemonade – no grit. No weird sugar aftertaste. Bella loved it.

We put some in a water bottle for her, and she sipped it throughout the day. We did a regimen of DripDrop, water, warm tea, oils, and chicken noodle soup.

Thankfully by Saturday evening everyone was feeling well again. Almost a week later. Whatever the stuff is that we’re all getting this year – it’s a real mess.
