Back to School Essentials When Sick Gets Real

Back to school means new shoes, clothes, backpacks, and new germs. As the summer days slowly fade, fall and cold season begin. I stay home, but both kids are in school exposing themselves to a ton of germs and then bringing them home to me. The joyous sick cycle begins.

We like to stock the house with hand sanitizer, orange juice, tissues, and Pfizer Pediatric products. Pfizer Pediatric makes sure that back to school season goes as smoothly as possible with Children's Advil®, Children’s Robitussin®, and Children’s Dimetapp® when sick gets real.

Pfizer Consumer Healthcare are there with three solutions to tackle the ickiest of symptoms, Children’s Advil®, Children’s Robitussin®, and Children’s Dimetapp®. Ease those aches and pains, while reducing a child’s fever fast with Children’s Advil®, 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.
This is what our #SickJustGotReal moments look like.
For your child’s cough, trust Children's Robitussin® Extended-Release 12 Hour Cough Relief to control and relieve symptoms all-day or all- 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. Children’s Dimetapp® Multi-Symptom Cold Relief Dye-Free eases your child’s stuffy and runny nose, while quieting a bothersome cough. All in a great-tasting grape flavor that’s dye-free, for children ages 6 and up.
