Winter is in full swing and so far it’s been relatively mild for us here in New York, with only one snow storm. I hope it stays that way but I’m prepared for anything it may bring us. I’m also prepared for any colds my kids may get, as these usually go hand-in-hand with winter weather. I’ve stocked up on everything I need to help my kids ride out the cold and flu season and ease their discomfort with children’s products from Pfizer.
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.
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 6 and up.
*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.

More often than not, the school nurse can diagnose your child with a cold and let you know. In my kids’ school, their nurse is fantastic and while my kids luckily haven’t had anything major, she’s always happy to supply them with bandages when they fall at recess and special boxes for their baby teeth (which seem to fall out during school time pretty often). Is your kids’ school nurse someone you’d like to single out?
