WFMW - tender noses
Despite it being spring in our part of the world (and feeling more like summer), we seem to currently be afflicted with a round of colds, 'flu, and chest infections. As our Family Daycare children are also bringing these bugs along with them into our house, some days I find myself wiping up to 4 little noses all day! All this blowing and wiping gets very painful for tender noses with just plain tissues, so I have found that occasionally interspersing tissues with blowing/wiping on wet wipes is quite soothing to little noses.
You can get wipes with aloe vera and other soothing things added, but do make sure that you use alcohol free wipes, so that you are not contributing to the drying-out of tender skin. Your little darling will have a moistened and soothed nose -- at least for a couple of minutes!
Now head on over to Rocks In My Dryer for more handy hints!
