As I know all too well, cough and cold season is upon us, and having two little girls (one of which frequents a germ-infested battleground called "kindergarten"), I've seen my fair share of runny noses and germy hands. Since you're reading THE ROCK FATHER, there's a pretty good chance that you're a parent, too, and as such I'm sharing Five Cough & Cold Tips for Parents, courtesy of my friends at Boogie Wipes and Kandoo. Even better? We've all teamed-up to give YOU a chance at winning a "Cough & Cold Comfort Basket" that includes a "Freddy the Frog" Humidifier from Crane, a Boogie Wipes & Kandoo Care Package and a $50 Amazon Gift Card.

Five Tips for Staying Comfortable during Cough & Cold Season

3. Sleep! This is easier said than done, but try to sneak in some extra sleep for your kids whenever you can. Try to head to bed a little earlier than normal or let them sleep a little later in the morning. Even 10 extra minutes a night can help in the fight against coughs and colds.

4. Wash those Hands Washing hands is your number one defense against germs - and Kandoo Foaming Hand Soap makes kids want to wash their hands. The foaming bubbles along with the great scents make handwashing fun!
