Although we had a warmer than usual fall, the cold has finally come to stay. In a few short weeks, it will be winter and I will be prepared for cold and flu season. No one wants to be caught off guard in the middle of the night when your child begins to not feel well. I like to have the following brands in my house so that we are ready for anything. At this time of year, I am constantly reminding my children to wash their hands well. Let’s keep the cold and flu away!
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.
Formulated just for kids, Children’s Robitussin® DM Day/Night Pack (Children’s Robitussin® Cough & Chest Congestion for ages 4+ and Children’s Robitussin® Nighttime Cough Long-Acting for ages 6+)** non-drowsy daytime formula helps break up chest congestion, while the long-acting nighttime formula relieves coughs and runny noses to help kids get the rest they need.
All in a great tasting grape flavor, Children’s Dimetapp® Cold & Cough for ages 6+ tackles a child’s most bothersome stuffy and runny noses, all while working to relieve cough.
Ease those aches and pains, while reducing a child’s fever fast with Children’s Advil® Suspension*, a great solution for kids as young as 2 and up to 11. Children’s Advil® comes in several great-tasting flavors, including: Sugar-free Dye-free Berry, Bubble Gum, Grape, Blue Raspberry, Fruit and Dye-Free White Grape 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.
It is important to remember to always read and keep the cartons for complete warnings and dosing information on Pfizer Pediatric products and to use as directed.
