I love the cooler temperatures. I am made for fall and winter so much more than spring and summer. However, what I don’t look forward to this time of year is sickness. And with 3 kids in school, the cold and flu germs get around.
While I would love to be wrong, it’s fair odds to say that someone in my house will get sick this year. In fact, we’ve already had our first round of colds pass through. Will that be the worst of it? I doubt it. So we do what we can when sick gets real with a medicine cabinet of trusted products and lots of tissue.

As such, once the first sniffle starts I make sure to stock up on cold and flu medicine. When sick gets real, the pediatric brands of Pfizer Consumer Healthcare are there with three solutions – Children’s Advil®, Children’s Robitussin® and Children’s Dimetapp® – to tackle the ickiest of symptoms.
First up in our medicine cabinet is Children’s Advil® Suspension. A great solution to ease those aches and pains associated with the common cold, while reducing a child’s fever fast. Children’s Advil® is made for kids as young as 2 and up to 11 and comes in several great-tasting flavors, including: Sugar-free Dye-free Berry, Bubble Gum, Grape, Blue Raspberry, Fruit and Dye-Free White Grape flavors. Children’s Advil® is also great on headaches, flu, and tooth aches.
Also in our cold and flu fighting repertoire is Children’s Robitussin® DM Day/Night Pack for ages 4+. Formulated just for kids in a non-drowsy daytime formula that helps break up chest congestion, while the long-acting nighttime formula relieves coughs and runny noses to help kids get the rest they need.
And for ages 6+ there’s Children’s Dimetapp® Cold & Cough in a great tasting grape flavor. It’s ready when you are to help tackle a child’s most bothersome stuffy and runny noses, all while working to relieve cough.
Of course, it’s best to keep those germs away to begin with. Thus, we have 5 More Tips to Fight the Cold and Flu Season. Not included on the list? Keep your kids quarantined to their room all winter, because that’s really the only fool-proof method. And I’m sure even that wouldn’t work.
- Wash hands frequently. Use hand sanitizer in between hand washings.
- Avoid sharing objects. Use disinfectant spray on common areas at home.
- Take care of yourself. Get plenty of rest and eat right.
- Cover your mouth when you sneeze and cough. Use tissues liberally.
- Stock up on cold and flu medicine.
As always, it is important to remember to always read and keep the cartons for complete warnings and dosing information and to use as directed. For more cold and flu fighting tips and information, be sure to follow the Sick Just Got Real Facebook Page.
