Keeping your family healthy Hylands Homeopathic review and #GIVEAWAY

As I sit down to write this review, my boys are napping, and my husband is resting on the couch. About three days ago my 3 yo came down with a nasty cough! No big thing, then came the fever. It lasted about 24 hours and he started feeling better. Then my 22 month old got the cough, runny nose and fever. His fever broke overnight and now both boys are on the mend. My husband on the other hand, came down with the cough and has had it for about a day now! He is feeling run down, and all 3 of my boys are trying to catch up on sleep!
I, however did not get sick! (Praise God)!

But before I get ahead of myself. A week or so ago I received a box of goodies from Hylands for review!
This is what I received: (please excuse the bad image resolution, I'm not sure what happened):
Top row left to right: the all-new Hyland's defend cold and cough night, defend cold and cough, night-time cold 'n cough 4 kids, cold 'n cough 4 kids, cough syrup 4 kids, Hyland's Baby cough syrup, Bumps 'n bruises ointment, (bottom row left to right) teething tablets, sniffles 'n sneezes 4 kids, Defend sinus, diaper ointment (which I was told is cloth-diaper safe), bumps 'n bruises with arnica, and teething gel.

I avoid all prescription medication and over the counter medication all together... for many reasons (which is a whole different blog post in itself)! The reasons I love homeopathy is because the ingredients in homeopathic remedies are safe, effective and 100% natural! Oh, and they really work!

Let's start with the new Hyland's defend cold and cough and the cold and cough for night time!
I gave these to my husband when he started showing signs that he was getting what the boys had (a cold)! He took the cold and cough during the day and at night I gave him the night time formula chamomilla in it which helps with sleeplessness! Soon after taking the cold and cough during the day he noticed that his cough had subsided and he was sneezing less!
I know the night time Defend cold and cough worked because that man snored so loud after he took it. He really did get a very good nights sleep!

Moving down the list, the next three remedies I tried on my 3 yo son were the night-time cold 'n cough 4 kids, cold 'n cough 4 kids, cough syrup 4 kids! These products are great. The cold 'n cough 4 kids was given to my son during the day, and his cough almost completely went away. I gave him the night time remedy just before bed and he slept straight through the night without waking up coughing (like he had been doing the night before)! The cough syrup for kids I tried on him the next day. Again, his cough almost completely went away!

The cold 'n cough 4 kids (both daytime and night time formula) and the cough syrup for kids is safe for kids ages 2 and up! I did not give these remedies to my youngest as he is not yet 2!

This is where the Hyland's baby cough syrup came in handy!
The Hyland's baby cough syrup is recommended for children 6 months and up!
I gave this to my youngest and it really eased his cough!

The next item I received for review is the Hyland's bumps 'n bruises ointment. Now, I have decided that I am not going to use this ointment on my kids. The reason for my decision is that the bumps 'n bruises ointment has parabens in it (methylparaben, and propylparaben)!
I contacted Hyland's and voiced my concerns and this was their response:
"in response to your question about parabens in Hyland’s Bumps ‘n Bruises ointment I can let you know that because of their safety, parabens have been used in products for over 50 years. Hyland’s is of the opinion that methyl and/or propyl paraben are appropriate to use as preservatives in a product that is at risk of microbiological contamination from contact inoculation. Hyland’s is aware of the issues around parabens, but does not feel that the research at this time warrants discontinuing their use from this particular product. Hyland’s continues to monitor new research developments.

Of course, Hyland’s respects customers’ decisions to select products that meet their requirements. For those who are not comfortable using the parabens preservatives, you may be interested to know that Hyland's also offers Bumps ‘n Bruises with Arnica tablets which are quick dissolve tablets in a purified lactose base. They do not contain preservatives of any kind. More information about the Bumps ‘n Bruises with Arnica tablets can be found at www.hylands.com"

My own personal choice is to use the paraben-free Bumps 'n Bruises with arnica tablets!
The next item I received I am very familiar with! The Hyland's teething tablets. Recently there was a voluntary recall on Hyland's teething tablets but the ones sent to me are the new, non-recalled tablets and I LOVE them! I used Hyland's teething tablets and teething gel with both my boys and I am so glad I did. When you are giving any kind of medication to an infant, it is so important to know what exactly you are putting into their tiny bodies!
Hyland's baby products contain nothing artificial! They are reasonably priced and, they really work!
The next item I reviewed was the Hyland's
This is another one of my favorite Hyland's products!

The only three items out of all the items I received that I have not had a chance to use yet were the new Defend sinus, diaper ointment and bumps 'n bruises with arnica tablets!
Another one of my favorite Hyland's products (which was not included in the samples) is their Calms Forte! They make a Calms Forte for kids and one for grown ups! I LOVE them both!
"This medicine is designed to safely and effectively counteract mental and physical restlessness in children. Studies show that 69% of our children under 10 years of age are prone to some kind of sleep problem." (information taken from Hyland's website)!

I love homeopathic products!
