It’s that time of year when we start seeing more colds, coughs, and sniffles going around. Here in North Carolina our weather is all over the place, which doesn’t help when it comes to trying to keep the kiddos healthy. Recently all this crazy got the best of my little guy and he wasn’t feeling very good at all. Luckily I have our Sick Just Got Real™ “Sick Day Survival Kit” up to date thanks to Target and Pfizer Pediatrics.
When it comes to all the aches and pains they get while sick, along with reducing their fever, we always turn to Children’s Advil®, it’s a wonderful solution for kids ages 2 and up to 11. Children’s Advil® comes in several great-tasting flavors including:
• Bubble Gum
• Blue Raspberry
• Dye-Free White Grape
If you happen to have an infant between the ages of 6-23 months, there’s also the Infants’ Advil® White Grape, which provides unsurpassed fever relief (among OTC pain relievers) with a syringe for easy dosing.
This time of year, we always seem to get a terrible cough along with the fever. The cough at times can seem harder on the little ones than the fever itself. When those time happens, we turn to Children’s Robitussin® Cough & Chest Congestion. Forumulated just for kids for ages 4+, this non-drowsy daytime formula helps break up chest congestion
Last but not least I want to mention Children’s Dimetapp® Cold & Cough. Not only is this product great tasting (so near tears when it’s time to take it), but it also tackles a child’s most bothersome stuffy and runny noses, all while working to relieve cough, for ages 6+.
What’s in our “Sick Day Survival Kit”
When my little ones feel bad I make it a point to help them feel as comfortable as possible, that’s why I always keep a “Sick Day Survival Kit” handy. Our “Sick Day Survival Kit” is pretty simple. It contains a thermometer, a cozy blanket, their favorite snuggly, water bottle and a couple of books and movies. That way I can make sure their temperature stays under control, they stay well hydrated and they can just relax on the couch with a good movie.
The movie that we pulled this time to watch together was The Sandlot. My boys had never watched this movie before and they loved it!!
Tom Guiry plays Scotty Smalls, the shy new kid on the block who wants to join the rowdy pickup baseball team that plays every day in the neighborhood sandlot. The summer passes blissfully as Scotty learns to play ball under the wing of Benny Rodriguez (Mike Vitar), the oldest and best player, as well as Ham, Squints, Repeat and the rest of the kid-eccentrics. The skies darken, however, when Benny literally knocks the stuffing out of the team’s only baseball, a sign of impending doom, or worse, bad luck. Wanting to set things right, Scotty returns home and “borrows” his stepfather’s ball, which he promptly uses to hit his first home run, knocking the ball clear out of the sandlot into mean old Mr. Mertle (James Earl Jones)’s junkyard, home to Mertle’s legendary guard dog The Beast.
