How to Survive Flu Season With A New Baby

Wednesday, December 27, 2017


Flu season can be a scary time of year for some adults; nobody wants to suffer the debilitating effects of this infection of the nose, throat, and lungs caused by influenza viruses. If this is your first flu season with a little one (or you're due to deliver soon) the thought of your precious bundle of joy, yourself, or anybody else who might come in contact with your baby catching the flu is even scarier. The flu is more dangerous than the common cold for young children and each year hundreds of children younger than 5 are hospitalized with flu complications, like pneumonia. I'm sharing my top tips for protecting your precious bundle of joy and yourself from contracting the flu illness and stay well this season.

The past couple of years have been some of my favorite years for Pantone’s Color of the Year. 2017 brought us Greenery, a refreshing shade symbolizing new beginnings. In 2016 we got a two-for one with the beautiful shades of Rose Quartz (a blush pink) and Serenity (a soft baby blue). This year’s Pantone COTY is Ultra Violet: a vibrant purple that “communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points toward the future,” says Pantone.
