There is nothing worse than seeing your child sick. It’s just awful, and as parents of course we would do anything to help them feel better. When sick gets real, parents get proactive.
We have three kids, all of whom go to school and around other kids. This means, of course, that an immeasurable number of germs come into our home each and every day. And when one of our kids gets sick, we’re immediately on guard trying to prevent the other two from coming down with whatever bug we’re dealing with.
Right now strep is making its way around like crazy. So far we’ve managed to avoid it (knock on wood!) but we’ve definitely dealt it in the past. One time our middle son had strep but we really had no clue at first – he didn’t complain at all of a sore throat, but he had a fever and his head was hurting really badly. Thankfully we had children’s Advil to help alleviate the pain while we waited to hear back from the doctor’s office! Children’s Advil is a great solution for kids as young as 2, and up to 11 – so it’s perfect for us to have on hand for all three of our kids. It comes in several flavors, including Sugar-free Dye-free Berry, Bubble Gum, Grape, Blue Raspberry, Fruit and Dye-Free White Grape. I personally love the color-free options, because my kids almost always drip a little medicine down the front of their shirts! (Just FYI, moms of infants – there’s also Infants’ Advil White Grape, which provides fever relief with a syringe for easy dosing. This works great for children 6-23 months.
Of course, with it being winter, colds are also running rampant. We’re really thankful for medicines like Children’s Dimetapp and Children’s Robitussin to help relieve our kids’ miserable cold symptoms when they hit! Children’s Robitussin Extended-Release 12 Hour Cough Relief controls and relieves symptoms all day or all night. It’s available in grape or orange flavor, and works well for children ages 4 and up. (Please note, certain Children’s Robitussin products are only suitable for children ages 6 and up so I am always sure to read the box for instructions). Another great option is Children’s Dimetapp Multi-Symptom Cold Relief Dye-Free, which eases your child’s stuffy and runny nose and quiets a bothersome cough. The Children’s Dimetapp comes in a great-tasting grape flavor that’s dye-free, for children ages 6 and up.
