Winter Illness Info

January 16, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

It’s that time of year when many children come down with viral infections, or what is better known as the common cold. We do our best at Gretchen’s House to minimize the spread of infection with lots of hand washing, but you may still find that your child comes home with a virus. I found this terrific article on Healthy that gives clear advice on treating these kinds of infections. You can find it by following this link: “Healthy” The article shares information about caring for children with stuffy noses, chest congestion and coughs.   The article also gives many suggestions for how to help our little ones feel more comfortable while they recover. Feel free to follow up with your classroom teacher or me if you have further questions.

Stay warm and healthy out there!
