Dry air, especially common in the winter, can irritate a cough. These winter coughs are the worst at night because they can be sleep-wreckers. The key is to soothe your ticklish throat before you go to bed or while you are sleeping. According to WebMd, most kids aged 3-6 years old (the age range of my kids) need on average 10-12 hours of sleep per day, so when they are not healthy and have a cough disrupting their sleep, the healing process is slowed down.
Vicks® VapoRub™ hosted a sweet and informative 8-Hour playdate event at Recess in Dumbo for press and local neighborhood families. The invited press and local families left the event with key learnings about Vicks® VapoRub™ and the importance of staying healthy this winter, plus a sweet swag bag.

Recess Dumbo is a minimalistic, modern-looking play space for children that offers drop-in play sessions. The equipment is mostly wooden and custom-made for the large indoor space, it seems to encourage children to climb and think creatively with their bodies. It’s a perfect clean space for the littles to play while the adults learn more about the benefits of Vicks® VapoRub™ and staying healthy this winter.

Kids also had the opportunity to craft their own germ monster. So many fun creative germs were made by the children attendees.

My daughter literally just came down with a cough, that became significantly worse while she slept. So, I applied Vicks VapoRub to her neck and chest, this touch application allowed for bonding between us when she was not feeling well. The menthol scent helped to give her relief during nap and bed time. The familiarity of the Vicks scent let me know it was working to help her cough.
