Cold season is always pretty tough. Will I catch it this year? Before or after the holidays? Or will these vitamins and smoothies fight it off? But as you run errands or sit at your cubicle hearing Carol sneeze and cough, you know you’re just playing the waiting game.
Now insert an infant and the anxiety is tenfold. Infants don’t understand cold season. They don’t understand that maybe they should be cautious about putting that toy that fell on the ground fifteen times in their mouth because it is likely covered in germs.
As a SAHM, I battled with whether it was worth it to go out and run our errands or stay locked up tight in our home. But with holiday shopping, the start of the new year, and for my sanity, we had to get out. So when Scotties reached out to me about a collaboration, I jumped at it.
Ryleigh came down with her first cold early on in the season and since the list is very minimal of what you can do to help an infant with a cold, you’re stripped to the basics. Tissues, humidifier and a lot of snuggles.
As a new mom, you feel so guilty that you can’t explain to them what a cold is or why its happening. We wiped her nose A LOT, but thankfully Scotties are such good quality that they kept her super soft sensitive baby skin protected.
And since Will and I are with the baby 24/7, we were bound to come down with a few cold symptoms. The new designs of Scotties work well with any home decor, so you can pick your style and keep those boxes everywhere you need them.
This herringbone design immediately caught my eye because it went to perfectly with our neutral kitchen.
And the soft blues of this design brought a little color to our family room and made our rug pop!
I love complimenting the subtle charcoal and gold florals of my serveware with the pop of royal blue florals in this design. I think it brings a little something to my rustic decor! And how cool is it that it feels like I’m switching up my tablescape decor just by replacing my tissue box!
We basically have a box of Scotties in every room right now and they blend in so well that it doesn’t feel like we’re surrounded by tissues. It also makes it easier to entertain during cold season because people can take care of their runny noses quickly without searching out the typical one box in the bathroom down the hall.
