Thank you to Pfizer Pediatric and Target for sponsoring today’s conversation.
Hello, Sunshine! It’s been so nice outside lately. We’ve had a few days of heavy rain, but for the most part it’s nothing but beautiful blue skies. Being able to go outside has been a nice welcome instead of being trapped inside. Last month, the three kids and I suffered from the flu and colds. It was a month full of sickness. No bueno! Winter may be over, but Springtime and Summer colds are just as miserable. Here’s 3 ways to comfort sick kids when #SickJustGotReal.
3 Ways to Comfort Sick Kids
1. Love and Nurture Them. Whether it’s a boo-boo that won’t go away or a cough that refuses to stop, loving and nurturing your kids is the best thing you can do for them. Sometimes that a hug that lasts a longer, an extra kiss or more snuggles than usual is all that it takes to make them feel better.
2. Distract, Distract, Distract. I know most kids are distracted more than ever, but if you can help them to forget that they have a cold the better off they’ll be. Play a board or card game, watch their favorite movie or do something special just for them.
3. When All Else Fails, Give Them Pfizer Pediatric Products. Sometimes you need a little extra help to kick that cold or fever to the curb. Robitussin®, Advil® and Dimetapp® have been staples in my home for years. Children’s Advil® kicks fevers and pain to the curb quickly, Children’s Robitussin® is my go to when chest congestion and coughing is too much for them to handle, and Children’s Dimetapp® provides relief to nasty lingering colds. I love that I can get Pfizer Pediatric Products during my weekly Target run.
Children’s Dimetapp® provides great-tasting cold-fighting power and is the #1 pharmacist recommended brand for children’s cough & cold symptoms(3) (for ages 6+). Dimetapp® Children’s Cough/Cold DM grape syrup – 4 Fl Oz. Infants’ and Children’s Advil® provide unsurpassed fever and pain relief(1) , and contain ibuprofen, the medicine pediatricians use most for their own kids’ fevers(2) (for ages 6 months -11 years). Advil® Children’s Grape Fever Reducer and Pain Reliever Liquid – 4 fl oz Children’s Robitussin® provides soothing action and cough control with some formulations lasting up to 8 hours (for ages 6-12 years).
