I’ll never forget a particular road trip we took to Fort Worth, Texas a little over six years ago. We drove in for the day to attend an event and planned to just drive back late that same night, so we decided we didn’t really need to bring much with us. J was almost 4, and C was a little over 2, so we didn’t even have to bring a huge diaper bag with us – we just brought a few diapers and a pack of wipes and thought we were good to go!
We made it through the day without incident, and decided to grab dinner before we hit the road. Brian was holding C as we waited to order, and then… sick got real. It got real all over C and ALL over Brian. The amazing employees told us they would handle clean up, but then we were left to figure out how to clean up Brian & C. We hadn’t brought any clothes, so we had to run to the store to buy replacement clothes, paper towels, a bucket, and some Children’s Advil® for his fever that seemed to pop up out of nowhere!
I won’t lie, that night was pretty rough (especially for Brian, who bore the brunt of the … sick – ew!). We’re so thankful we were near a Target and could run in for the supplies we needed, but we also learned how important it is to be prepared.
Whether it’s a day trip or a long cross-country trek we always travel with basic kids’ medicine. Children’s Advil®, Children’s Dimetapp®, Children’s Robitussin® are great to have on hand so that if sick gets real, you’re ready!

Children’s Advil® comes in several flavors, including: Sugar-free Dye-free Berry, Bubble Gum, Grape, Blue Raspberry, Fruit and Dye-Free White Grape (our kids’ favorite!) flavors. There’s also Infants’ Advil® White Grape, which provides unsurpassed fever relief (among OTC pain relievers) with a syringe for easy dosing for children 6-23 months.
- Children’s Robitussin® Extended-Release 12 Hour Cough Relief is awesome to have on hand for controlling and relieving symptoms all day and night. Available in grape or orange flavor, for children ages 4 and up. Please note, certain Children’s Robitussin® products are only suitable for children ages 6 and up.
