Cold and Flu Supplies – What Kids Need When They Are Home Sick

Thank you to Pfizer for sponsoring today’s post on cold and flu supplies for kids. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Spring is here, and Summer is quickly approaching. When Spring comes, the outdoors also comes alive. The flowers are blooming and the bees are buzzing. With this wonderful season also comes colds and bacteria. During the warmer weather, germs are spread around so much easier and sometimes kids get so excited that they will forget to wash their hands. Thanks to Target and Pfizer Pediatric Products, I can help the kids in my home when they first show symptoms of a cold.

Cold and Flu Supplies – What Kids Need When They Are Home Sick

Pfizer Pediatric Products

Pfizer Pediatric Products are a brand that is well known and loved by many parents and caregivers. I for one keep my home stocked with various cold and flu supplies because when someone gets sick, going to the store in the middle of the night is the last thing you want to do.

If Sick just got real.™ for your family, there are solutions to help tackle even the ickiest of symptoms, like Children’s Advil®, Children’s Robitussin®, and/or Children’s Dimetapp®. I recently received all of these products and they came just in time to help get my household prepared for the fevers, coughs, and colds that are sure to come our way this season.

Children’s Dimetapp® – This was the go to medicine my mother gave me when I was little, and now I use it on my nieces. This grape flavored medicine helps relieve stuffy and runny noses, as well as help relieve a cough.

Children’s Advil® Fever Reducer and Pain Reliever Liquid- This grape flavored medicine works to help bring down a fever and relieve pain (such as growing pains or boo boos).

Children’s Robitussin® Day & Night Cough Relief- These have really been getting the most use at my house. The daytime cough & chest congestion is perfect for daytime use because it is non-drowsy. It helps break up chest congestion while the long-acting nighttime formula relieves coughs and runny noses to help children get the rest they need.
