What to Do When You Have a Hangover and Kids

Every parent deserves a night out on the town, but unfortunately, sometimes we’ve been looking so forward to that time away from all the confusion that is part and parcel of raising a family that we simply overindulge. The result can be trying enough due to nausea and an inability to focus, let alone get anything done, so it’s good to know that there are some steps to take if you are suffering a nightmarish hangover. Here are some tips to help get you through the next 24 to 72 hours – and if you think hangovers can’t last two or three days, you’ve got another thing coming!

  • The Cause of Prolonged Hangovers

Before deciding what to do about those two and three-day hangovers, it’s good to understand just why some people suffer more serious consequences from drinking too much. It’s all about how alcohol is processed in the body and it is the liver that does the bulk of the work. If you give this organ more than it can handle, it goes into overdrive. It simply can’t filter all the toxins quickly enough, so that adds to the stress your body is experiencing.

  • The Most Effective Cure Is a Good Flushing

Cleansing has been a popular topic in recent years in terms of ridding the body of toxins. Some people go on juice fasts to cleanse their bodies but after a night of serious drinking, can you hold that down? Probably not! There are Restive IV centers with trained medical professionals, registered nurses, in fact, who can give you IV hydration therapy that does the flushing without causing further stomach issues. Check out the website to read the Frequently Asked Questions section to learn how IV therapy aids the body in recovering during a particularly nasty hangover and what to expect after treatment.

  • Get Help Minding the Kids BEFORE You Leave for the Night

While most parents simply hire a babysitter to stay while they’re away for the evening, it might be prudent to hire help for the next day or so as well. Get grandma or grandpa to come for the night so that someone is in the house should you experience a serious case of the heaves after your night of drinking and carousing. They say that being forewarned is being forearmed and such is the case when going out for a night of drinking. If it’s been a while since you’ve tied one on, it’s better to be prepared than suffer the consequences afterward. 

Just know that it is not unusual to experience two and three-day hangovers and some are so extreme that they are literally debilitating. From headaches to nausea and everything in between, your body is telling you it needs help. IV therapy with vitamins and fluids being reintroduced to the body are the best help you can get but in the meantime? See to the kids. Make sure someone is there to watch them while you are incapacitated – and incapacitated you will be. Restive IV and sitters are your two best aids. That’s a promise.
