Hi friends, I’m writing about Vick’s again. Remember that? I’m part of the Vick’s Blogging Brigade ? I was definitely compensated to write these posts but keep in mind that I only agree to these partnerships when it’s a company and/or product that I firmly believe in. So, it’s okay. You can keep reading. No shenanigans here.
I’ve always had growing pains in my legs. When I was little girl climbing trees (and then falling out of them), as a teenager and even now as a Mama to three with one on the way. My legs simply hurt nearly every night.
When I’m pregnant is when this problem is particularly intense because I try to avoid taking Tylenol and I most definitely can’t take an anti-inflammatory, so I’m left lying in bed, unable to sleep because my legs just hurt.
Sometimes, while I’m lying in bed, unable to sleep because my legs just hurt, Anna and Noah will wake up and tell me their legs hurt, so I’ll climb out of bed, legs aching and give them some medicine and a nice little rub and then they fall asleep.
Brian is a busy guy but always obliges when I ask him to rub my legs before bed. It wasn’t until a few weeks ago, when I had a terrible cold, unable to breathe, (again, unable to medicate due to pregnancy!) that I thought to have Brian rub my legs using Vick’s Vapor Rub. Friends, not only did my legs feel so much better, but I could breathe and then? I slept.
The best part? Vick’s Vapor Rub can be used on children ages two and up. So next time they wake up with sad little leg pains? This is what I’ll be reaching for and not the Ibuprofen.
Are you a fan of Vick’s on Facebook? Go. Do. Now. They’re fun to follow.
I’ll be back later this month with a Vick’s giveaway!
