I'll be the first to admit that I am not the world's best patient when I am sick. Being sick is never fun but being sick as a new mom adds even more to the stress of being sick. With sleep deprivation and the worry about our baby catching the bug that I was dealing with, I had to put our care solely in the hands of my husband. I can confidently say that I am able to trust my husband with the care of our son and Dr. Husband with the care of a cranky, ill wife. I was out of commission for about a week with cold and flu symptoms. During that time my son never lacked for care. I didn't have to worry about my baby because hubby had it under control. All I could do was stay in bed and get rest. This can be tough to do when you are coughing, suffering with a sore throat, and full of aches and pains. During my illness I took Walgreens Brand Multi-Symptom Nighttime Cold & Flu Relief. It works as well as the name brand nighttime relief medicine at a fraction of the cost. We first tried Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products when our infant son needed pain relief from teething. We now choose carefully when purchasing over the counter medicines as we learned that we can save money without worrying about sacrificing quality. Most contain the same active ingredients as other national brands and we trust Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products.
