Stomach Flu Essentials

Wow, what a weekend.  Stomach flu, all the way!

It hit me like a ton of bricks on Friday night.  Luckily Jack was already in bed.  I won't go into details, but it was bad.  Really bad.

Then on Saturday, it hit my husband like a ton of bricks too.  Oh yuck.  Luckily though he was able to run out to the store to get some must needed essentials.

What are the must-have's to get you through the flu with a baby?  Let me tell you...

Vitamin water.  Take slow sips only ever 5 minutes until you are able to keep things down.  Hydration is key to getting well fast.

Glaceau Vitamin Water Variety 20/20oz

Bread for making toast when you finally start to feel 1/8 human again.  Make sure it's organic to get those extra vitamins in your system.

Vermont Bread Company Certified Organic Organic Bread, Multigrain, 20 oz, (pack of 6)

The sauce.  Applesauce that is.  That's right, your baby can eat it too.

Musselman's Natural, Unsweetened Applesauce, 23-Ounce Plastic Jars (Pack of 6)

And above all else, get rest.  Take a nap when you can and of course take turns with your spouse.  It's so hard, I know.  I really hope none of you have to go through what we went through last weekend!  Yuck-o-la.
