10 Ways to Know Your Child Has a Cold – Dettol Mission For Health

This month over at Dettol Mission for Health I am sharing “10 Ways You Know Your Child Has a Cold. Below is a mere snippet, click HERE to read the full article.

As far as I’m concerned there are two seasons that I observe as a parent, The Snot Season and The Not Snot Season. As soon as the mercury begins to plummet, as it is doing right now, you can bet your bottom dollar that the snot is on its way. As a parent I am braced for it with all the enthusiasm of root canal surgery. Here are 10 of the tell tale signs that your child has a cold.

Your child will go to bed a happy little bundle of joy and wake up with look of The Exorcist girl about them, all blood-shot eyes, pale skin, angry demeanour, trance like stare and of course a large helping of thick gloop that will be your enemy for the next few days.

    Bloody colds. Junior just had his 1st ever. Thankfully it was only around for a couple of days but the snot stream was like nothing I’ve ever seen.
    Anyway, fun times.

    i liked your picture of the toilet paper tissues. I have even been so desperate when we have been out and faced with the old ‘snotty nose and no tissue’ dilemma that i have whipped of the kids socks and blown their noses on them!!
