Tylenol Wants to See You #SmilingItForward

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.
The hardest part of being a mama is when your babies are sick or sicky, as we say in this house. But one of the best things that a mama can experience is the smile that your baby gives you when they start to feel better. The way you take care of your babies, usually comes from the way that your mother took care of you, and her mother took care of her. As an adult, I'm not ashamed to say I wish my Mom would still take care of me when I get sick, because there really is nothing better than a Mom's care.
Recently, I was invited to a luncheon at the Bouchon Bistro in Beverly Hills to hear Dra. Aliza A. Lifshitz M.D speak about what we, as mamas can do to help prevent our children from getting sick and what we can do to help them feel better. 
I was joined by not only fellow Moms, but fellow Latina Blogger Moms like myself. It was an afternoon of delicious food and great company as we discussed our tips and tricks for helping our babies feel better.
Just in time for cold and flu season, Dra. Aliza shared some of the best tips for preventing your littles from getting sick:
  • Wash your hands! Not just rinse, but make sure the kids wash their hands with soap to keep the germs away. 
  • When soap and water are unavailable, use hand sanitizer. Throw it in the backpack or lunch bag for the kids. 
  • Eat a balanced meal. You can maintain your immunity by eating healthy amounts of veggies and protein.
  • When a fever hits over 101 degrees, it's time to take your child to see the doctor.
Tylenol has been a part of motherhood for nearly 60 years. From the scary first fever, to the teething, and the horrible ear infections, Tylenol is what brings comfort to our babies. In 2013, Tylenol started the Smiling It Forward program to help bring children in need the healthcare they deserve.
Tylenol began to recognize that moms like to post cute photos of their child’s adorable smiles, including the “feel better” smile that moms can't wait to see.  Those "feel better" photos are what inspired the team at Tylenol to create the Smiling It Forward program. By sharing a photo that makes you smile at SmilingItForward.com, Tylenol will make a $1 donation* to Children’s Health Fund. 
The Children’s Health Fund is a national leader on healthcare for vulnerable children and has a fleet of 50 mobile medical clinics serving hundreds of locations across the country, including schools, community shelters and homeless shelters so that every child in need has a chance to be healthy and ready to learn.
