Are you ready for summer? One great way to prepare is to head over to Target and get all your summer needs right there. I’m lucky I have a Super Target just down the road from me so it is easy. I actually learned to be prepared from my Aunt because whenever we’d go visit she had a cabinet full of medicines for everyone, not just her husband or herself. She was prepared for her nieces and nephews all year long no matter the age. You never know who will get sick when they are visiting or living there. When sick gets real this summer will you be ready? My kids get out of school in less than 12 days, which means I need to be prepared with crafts, books, fun activities for them to do otherwise I’m going to constantly hear the “I’m bored” song that all parents go through during breaks or rainy weekends. One too many times I’ve had at least one child get sick during the summer, when you have 5 kids that typically means you are going to have others following suit. This year I’ll be prepared with my sick kit.
“Pfizer Pediatric wants to help you get prepared for the fevers, coughs, and colds coming your way this season, and Target has all of thePfizer Pediatric products you need to fight against the “ick’s” and “ew’s” that bring your kids down.”
Here’s a few products for the sickies I always have on hand because I’ve used them for years. Dimetapp Children’s Cough/Cold DM grape syrup – 4 Fl Oz. tackles a child’s most bothersome stuffy and runny noses, all while working to relieve cough. Provides great-tasting cold-fighting power and is the #1 pharmacist recommended brand for children’s cough & cold symptoms(3) (for ages 6+) Not only is the flavor great tasting it, this also acts as an allergy relief. Don’t quote me but back in the 90s my family had to keep this one on hand if a neighbor girl was coming over so she could be in our house because we had cats. This worked for her great. Today, I use Dimetapp whenever my elementary-age children get sick with a common cold. It’s always in the stores so it isn’t like I have to go to the doctor for a sniffle and during the summer someone is bound to get them at least once. This one is good for children 6 years and older.
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 with a syringe for easy dosing for children 6-23 months. Provides unsurpassed fever and pain relief(1) , and contain ibuprofen, the medicine pediatricians use most for their own kids’ fevers(2) (for ages 6 months -11 years)Whether they are getting shots for school or they have a fever this is a great medicine to have on hand. I must admit I normally only get this for my teens. I didn’t realize until now that this is actually safe for ages 2-11. $5.69 on the site right now.
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. Provides soothing action and cough control with some formulations lasting up to 8 hours (for ages 6-12 years) Got a kid that is having a hard time with a cough? Whether it is allergies or being sick no parents like their kids being miserable or in pain so this is a great relief for them. I love the value pack because you’ll have it ready for them day or night, whenever it strikes. Night time is great because it’ll put them to sleep and day time makes it so it doesn’t knock them right out in case they need to do sports. I always get day & night for adults whenever I get sick just to kill it quicker, since I know this brand and trust them I would trust it with my children.
*It is important to remember to always read and keep the cartons for complete warnings and dosing information on Pfizer Pediatric Platform products and to use as directed
I keep all three of these in a basket I have under my desk for easy reach for me. Once they’ve been opened I typically keep them in the door of my refrigerator. Inside my basket are all types of goodies for when a child/adult gets sick and needs something or to be entertained.
