I have received information about the TYLENOL® SMILING IT FORWARD™ program from McNeil Consumer Healthcare Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc., the makers of TYLENOL®. The opinions stated are my own. This is a sponsored post for Latina Bloggers Connect.
Last week I was invited to the TYLENOL SMILING IT FORWARD Sobremesa event with Dr. Aliza, a renowned physician and founder of Vida y Salud. It was a brunch style event with several bloggers where we got to learn and ask questions on how to keep our little ones smiling and healthy through the cold and flu season. TYLENOL started the campaign after noticing that moms have always posted cute photos of their child's adorable smiles, but one smile in particular that was being shared over and over again was the "feel better" smile. It's the smile that moms are waiting anxiously to see when their child is starting to feel better after being sick. The SMILING IT FORWARD campaign now helps bring children in need the healthcare they deserve.
Oddly enough, our little guy had been sick that entire week with the cold, so I definitely know how precious that first smile is after they feel better. I loved hearing what other moms had to say and it just reminded me how we really are all in this together.
Here are some pictures I thought you might enjoy....

Dr. Aliza had some great tips, especially how prevention is one of the most important things. Here are some of my favorite tips shared during the event. They not only apply to our kids, but it's also important that us moms are healthy too.

1. A well-balanced diet is one of the bet ways to keep your family healthy as possible. Foods like fresh fruits and vegetables and lots of water should be part of your child's daily menu in order to keep their immune system strong and healthy.
2. Make sure your child gets plenty of rest. For toddlers it's important they get at least 12 hours of sleep.
3. If you child has a stuffy nose, try using a drop or two of nasal saline in each nostril. If the stuffiness keeps your little one from sleeping or eating try gentle suctioning to remove the mucus.
4. You can also use a cool-mist humidifier or vaporizer in your child's bedroom to help alleviate congestion.
Also, don't forget to upload your own "feel better" smile. By sharing a photo that makes you smile at SmilingItForward.com, TYLENOL will make a $1 donation to Children's Health Fund, helping to ensure a doctor's visit is always within reach for children in need.
