Vicks BabyRub Review
We are a family of asthmatics. I swear to you. From me, to my 3 kids, and yes -even to our dear Lelly, mga hikain kami! @_@ Everytime we change seasons, hika. Everytime there is a major case of the sniffles, hika. Every time there is a scent that doesn't go well with our timpla, HIKA!
The symptoms of asthma include:
- Feeling short of breath
- Frequent coughing, especially at night
- Wheezing (a whistling noise during breathing)
- Difficulty breathing
- Chest tightness
Mine is a case of adult-onset asthma. But the 3 kids, poor them, they had it early on. Boo! So VICKS, with years of proven track record as part of the P&G family, has always been a huge part of our daily lives. For stuffy nose, Vicks. For itchy throat, Vicks. For congested chests, Vicks. I promise, we can be poster ads for Vicks, lol. No doubt about it.
Let me share with you a tried & tested secret in the GOppets household. For dry, hacking, and persistent coughing at night for my forever babies, I rub a generous amount of Vicks BabyRub on the soles of the feet of Kap & the kids. Massage deeply, then put on a thick socks over their feet. 100% peaceful & cough-free sleep at night, garantisado yan.
Why BabyRub on my grown kids? Because it doesn't have that strong menthol scent. Vicks BabyRub is menthol-free so it's milder & gentler, perfect for asthmatics like us. Not too strong to put on the skin of your younger children, the smell is just enough to help unblock noses and clear chests. What's more, only a small amount needed so you get lots of use out of one application.
Tried & tested at the GOppets household. For persistent coughing that prevents your babies from having a peaceful slumber, scoop a generous amount of Vicks BabyRub, rub briskly together in the palm of your hands until warm, then apply on the soles of the feet -massaging gently. Then cover immediately with warm socks & let the magic work. Siguradong masarap at mahimbing ang tulog, tulog na walang halong kahol. ;)
So proven & so effective that we just can't live without it!
Vicks BabyRub contains is a mild, non-medicated formula that contains fragrances of eucalyptus, rosemary, and lavender and is proven safe to use even on babies as young as 3 months old. I swear by Vicks BabyRub from the time I was a child, until the time that I finally had kids of my own -never failed.
I remember as a first time mom, Vicks BabyRub, was a soothing comfort not just for my baby but for me as well. At times when your baby is fussy or irritable, you want to do everything to can to soothe and comfort them. The night (and day) can get rough for mothers of young children when hacking coughs & stuffy nose persists and all you can do is just helplessly look on.
Discovering & learning so many firsts with my firstborn. <3 Our bond is really so strong.
The gentle Vicks BabyRub formula contains petrolatum and aloe to leave your baby's skin feeling soft. Vicks BabyRub contains the aromatic fragrances of eucalyptus, rosemary and lavender. Vicks BabyRub combined with your loving touch is perfect to calm, soothe, and relax your baby.
I always keep a tub of Vicks BabyRub in my bag (especially when traveling) for when the coughs & colds attack. Guaranteed instant relief. Kap & the kids always tease me for being a girl scout & having everything handy & dandy in my big bag. Eh ganyan naman talaga tayong mga nanay diba? Laging handa at ever-ready! \m/
I make sure that when traveling, I have a tub of Vicks BabyRub readily available in my bag & also in my maleta. Mabuti na ang sigurado. Ganyan naman ang mga nanay, dapat laging handa. \m/
