A New Habit


Lately, Sharlene has developed a new habit of wearing socks to bed every night. This habit was formed when she had runny nose and cough sometime beginning of last month. Her cough got worse during the night. During that time I applied Vicks on her chest, back and soles of her feet and put on a pair of socks before she went to sleep. This method helps her to sleep better in the night. Although now she has fully recovered from her cough, she still insists on wearing her socks to bed every night. I suppose the socks are keeping her feet warm and comfortable at night, especially when she’s sleeping in an air-cond room. Perhaps, I should try it out tonight...and who knows, I might like it too, haha.

My mil used to wear the socks for my boy when it's time for bed at night.

I guess it's good to wear socks to keep warm as kids tend to kick away the blanket. :)

It's vy comfy to wear socks if u're in an air-cond room, which is on the whole night. When I'm on hol n sleep in hotels, I always wear socks to bed coz the blanket won't be enuff.

Thanks for dorpping by and leaving a comment on my blog.

We always use this method whenever my son's down with a cough. But myself dont like wearing socks to sleep, feel very hot and tight around the feet. Did you wear socks to bed during your confinement? I did, but just hate it! :)

Its a good habit actually..wearing socks keep the feet warm and the little one won't fall sick so easily...that's what I heard.

yeah, Ryan also wears socks now and we rub vicks on his feet too...since he is always getting cough regularly. I do believe in this way...

Know what? This happened to both my older gals too, after their bout of cough and after I had put Vicks on the soles of their feet. It took me quite some time to wean them off socks during bedtime!
