Similisan Share Your Story - When Your Child Is Sick, What Can You Do?

This is sponsored content from BlogHer and Similasan.

Like most moms, I have my fair share of experience with sick kids--earaches, tummy bugs, colds, you name it.


My poor sick boy (sorry for the blur, iPhone pic)

Unlike most other moms, I also have entirely too much experience with children who manage to break themselves by doing things like jumping off our second floor balcony and breaking 3 limbs, at *7* years old, and then spending 2 months with 2 casted legs and one casted arm.


That would be one broken left wrist, one broken right heel, one broken left talus

Needless to say, I now have an arsenal of what-to-do-when-you're-not-feeling-well activities.

Both kids came down with pretty bad ear infections at the beginning of August--their ears hurt to the touch, it hurt to lay on them, hurt to swallow, etc. Off to the pediatrician we went--middle ear infections and swimmer's ear, times 2. Of course, like most small children, they were generous enough that Faith had it one week, then just as she finished her medicine, Ben got it.

A few of our tried & true ideas, for kids who aren't feeling well (or in the case of Faith, otherwise incapacitated):
  • Since their bedrooms are upstairs, I bring down their favorite blankets, pillows and critters, and set them up on the couch so they are right by me during the day.
  • I put on a kettle of chicken soup because chicken soup makes everything feel better. My mom always made soup when we were sick, and it really works! Be careful with tummy bugs though, the soup might have to wait till day 2.
  • We have movie day on the couch. We have a huge DVD collection and the kids haven't seen a lot of our old favorites, so I'll bring down one of the ones that are new to them. They've loved Mary Poppins, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Bedknobs & Broomsticks.
  • We cuddle on the couch and read books--some old favorites, some new ones. I always have some new books aside that they haven't read yet, and my parents have sent a lot of ones from my own childhood too.
  • I bring out one of the lapdesks so they can color or draw while sitting on the couch. I'd rather not have them wandering around if they are not feeling well, so I try to keep them happy but resting.
  • We also have a lot of craft kits that get brought out for the occasion. Faith likes the bead and sewing kits a lot, Ben likes the sticker and design a picture kits. Those are great for quiet time activities.
  • We'll play a few board games or card games to pass the time too, they both love Crazy Eights and Sorry.
  • If they're feeling up to it, we'll bake something yummy. Much like chicken soup, cookies make you feel better too.
  • They get to take a nice relaxing bath in the big bathtub in my bathroom, with bubbles or salts to make the water even better. For colds, we add mint salts to the water to help the sinus breathe.
Another great idea, and we swear by the earache relief, is Similisan (no experience with pink eye, so far, knock on wood). Similasan Earache Relief ear drops and Pink Eye Relief eye drops are safe and effective remedies to help relieve the symptoms of earaches and pink eye naturally. Similasan uses 100% natural active ingredients in their products. Pink Eye Relief eye drops relieve the redness, watery discharge and burning associated with viral and environmental conjunctivitis (pink eye). Earache Relief ear drops relieve the pain of earaches and are safe for all ages.”

  3. When my son is sick I am his live-in maid by choice. What he asks for, I get. We watch movies all day. He gets all the ginger ale he wants and popsicles. We usually eat soup with crackers.

  5. We have a ton of experience with kids being sick.

    DD usually likes to lay on the couch with a blanket, her lovie, and a cup of pedialyte and watch TV. She's not much into cuddling.

    DS LOVES cuddling. I will lay on the couch and hold him and his lovie and cup of pedialyte under a blanket while he watches Cars. Sometimes I sleep in his room at night if he's really sick. On a pull out Lightning McQueen couch that's about 2.5 feet long!

  6. We stay in bed all day watching cartoons, lots of soups, liquids, basically whatever sick child asks for.

  8. We have a big aerobed that I can pull out and then inflate at the touch of a button. I bring up (bedrooms are down in the basement) pillows, blankets, lovey, and stuffed friends and we make a big "nest" in the middle of the living room floor. Great for cuddling, movies and naps and is made even more comfy with "sweet dream" spray which is lavender oil and water. I can also put a board down on it for coloring. If it's a tummy bug we keep food simple to dry toast at first but I try and make it more interesting by using cookie cutters to make fun shapes. Drinks with fun straws, new movies, new books, and sometimes we'll take a nice bath and get out the tub paints and/or crayons.

  9. Lots of fluids, avoid dairy.
    I build a big blanket and pillow fort in the playroom that we play board games in and ready stories. We really like to make up/write out own stories too! Movie/TV show marathons too!

  10. My son is older so he just knows that he needs to rest until he feels better! When he was little, I would read him lots of stories!

  14. Whenever my daughter is sick, she wants MAMA…and so, she gets my attention! I cook her chicken and rice soup, give her crackers and juice and popsicles! We color, play board games, play on the wii or ps2, or watch movies and snuggle. When a fever or headache is causing issues...we use the MAGIC wash cloth...which basically is a decorative wash cloth that I put cool water on and place on her forehead...

  28. When my kids get sick they get totally indulged. Propped up in the middle of my bed with a jumbo pile of pillows, blankies, the doggie if they want him, bucket if necessary, sprite, saltines, bananas, if they have stomach issues, anything they want if it isn't the stomach. Movies, music, magazines, anything they want from the library, and lots of TLC and special attention.

  39. My girls were both sick last week and they got plenty of orange gatorade, green jello, cinnamon sugar toast, homemade chicken noodle soup and homemade rice pudding. We watched a LOT of movies on Netflix (streaming) and did a lot of Charlie Brown puzzles (their favorite).

  40. OMG!! Your poor broken one! She has officially beat my girl who at 2, climbed the baby gate at the top of the stairs and did a header (I was in the bathroom, she was supposed to be napping) and broke her left leg and then at 9 she jumped over the couch and dislocated her shoulder and broke her arm in 2 places. I am glad to know I am not the only one with a daredevil girl!

    When mine are sicl. if they feel up to it we do arts and crafts or a puzzle, if not than it is cuddling under a blanket in our jammies and vegging out on Spongebob.

  44. TV is definitely her biggest treat when she's sick. She also really likes to sleep in bed with us or take her naps on the couch instead of in her room. She is pretty clingy when she's sick so basically one of us just has to constantly be by her side.

  56. We set up a "sick bay" on the couch with blankets, tissues, juice and a "barfy bucket" (if needed). Lots of DVD's and usually one of the dogs plants himself right on top of the blankets and "watches" my daughter to make sure she's okay. I always keep vegetable soup and crackers in the cupboard for those sick days. Oh and Popsicles...a standard staple for my daughter when her throat hurts.

  63. Being sick is not fun, so they usually get good treatment. Of course, it depends on how sick they are. I let them lay on the couch. I move the piano bench over and make sure they have a drink and a small snack. They get the choice of what movie/show to watch.

    When I was young and sick, my dad would give us either $1 or he'd buy us a drink. He was tight with his money, but made sure the sick kids got something.

  82. All three of my daughters are currently sick, the oldest one is getting the worst of it though. When sick they get unlimited tv and cpu games. Whatever they want to drink healthy choices that is, luckily my kids never get their own soda or anything so they wouldn't think to ask for that, mostly it just means they can have milk or juice with meals instead of water.

So funny...I had a sick boy home this week and I was about to google "what to do with a sick kid"! :) We figured it out...lots of TV, books on the couch, jammies all day and night, juice, lotion kleenex (and Neosporin with pain relief is SO great on sore noses). We survived...we'll see if any of the other four come down with it next. :(

  89. When my kids are not feeling well we have a few fun traditions. One is of course snuggling with Mommy (my favorite) we always lay on the couch together and they pick their favorite movie. I also try to make sure they eat something even if they aren't feeling up to it. Last time my 5 year old was ill we kabobed grapes and dyed some organic white mac and cheese green with a little food dye. Mu son loves anything green. The kids other favorite is a warm blanket right out of the dryer at rest time. Hope this helps someone else's little one feel better.

  106. My wife does a lot of the nurturing when the kids are sick, to be honest. But I will read to them, and watch movies. When they feel well enough to start playing videogames, that's the signal that they are feeling better.

  108. My son has severe asthma, so sick days have become a routine of their own. I fix a “bed” on the couch with blankets and pillows, and help him get as comfortable as possible. Usually he wants just water, but sometimes I’ll give him Diet 7Up. I give him food to graze on rather than big meals, as he can sometimes have trouble with his stomach. He loves movies, so we keep plenty handy to help pass the time.
    And nothing is as comforting to him as a visit from Grandma.

  114. Lots of extra hugs and snuggs. :) They get to do things I normally don't let them do like watching old TV shows on Hulu!

  116. Sick days means lying on the couch with their favorite blanket and watch movies. I make sure there is a drink on the coffee table or some hot soup

  118. Well, I can't say it's tried and true...but, it's all I know to do! First of all, I pray with and for my children. I hug & hold them if they want me to. and, I offer them popsicles, jello, and 7-Up. The most recent malady at my house was that my 12yo son got poison oak two weeks ago. Nothing I could do for him, so he had to go see the doctor and get a prescription. I still gave him TLC :)

  124. My name is allena I 'm happy to say this because its the best thing that has ever happened to me in life. I was once a HIV/AIDS patient, I was leaving on drugs to supress this for a very long time until A friend brought me a news about how she got healed of her cancer.
    When she told me the awesome story it was like i have found a treasure. She said she has paid bills here and there in different hospitals just as i have been doing, then on a faithful day she got intact with an africa person who referred her to Dr. Lamp a herbal healing doctor who cures all types of sickness, the email of this doctor is herbalcuremedicine@live.com, was giving to her to meet him. She passed it to me also then i contacted this Dr. Lamp and he told me that my illness is nothing i should fear for his spiritual healing drugs can cure them in full.
    He told me that has a medicine call ASPOLINE BC ROOT MEDICINE AND TIVON D1, D2 CETRIN that he uses in curing HIV/AIDS. This sound so unusual because i went to some stores and pharmacies to find this drugs, i didn't see them. He then said this drugs are not ordinary medicine, that they are spiritual herbal medicine prepared for only 7days usage and i must do what he tells me because he is going to be working in his temple with my pics with the spirits as i use this medicine.
    I did as he has said and adhere to his words. he prepared the herbal medicine for me and i used it for 7days exactly. The greates news is that immediately i have finished the medicine he asked me to burn the cup and use the ashes to bath. I did as he said and also did some prayers. I then went to the hospital to confirm if i am truly healed, the result that came out said "i have no HIV/AIDS in my cells and blood and that i am completely ill free, this surprise me because i was expecting to see may be i am almost healed, but the results said i am completely HIV/AIDS NEGATIVE.
    This is what i have never expect to see or hear but my dear, it came true, i went to another lab to do the same test it was the same result that i am HIV/AIDS NEGATIVE. I came back home with my heart full of joy and happiness that i have life in abundance.
    This dr. Lamp ASPOLINE BC ROOT MEDICINE AND TIVON D1, D2 CETRIN, cured my HIV/AIDS in just 7days, all my friends who has ill health or something are running after this dr. just to get this medicine, I am so excited speaking to the world that a herbal cure and spiritual drugs has been found to cure HIV/AIDS.
    dr lamp email address is herbalcuremedicine@live.com, If you are ill as i was once was, please dont think it is over because life has more to offer. His medicine is generally accepted. I used it and i am cured, just go do the same.
