Keeping young children hydrated during a stomach flu can be really stressful. Christa Clips Save-at-Home-Mom shares a tip on how to make hydration fun!

Our son (5) has been home all week with a nasty stomach flu. Trying to keep him hydrated without sending him running to the toilet has been a challenge – even small “sips” were too much for his tummy to handle.  So we came up with “Lizard Licks” and it worked! Every 5 minutes he dipped his tongue in the shot glass (ha!) and seems to have even adopted lizard posture and etiquette!

“Lizards don’t wipe their lips on their sleeves, Mom. They don’t even wear shirts.”

Right.

This Save-at-Home-Mom is glad she had the time to nurse her little lizard back to health at a relaxed pace without a trip to the doctor. Today we’re onto entire shots at a time! Bottoms up!
