Winter might be behind us now, but that doesn’t mean that illness can’t and won’t creep up on your little ones. It seems like my kids always get sick a few weeks before school is released for the year, then again a few weeks after school is back in session! Someone will also have a fever or a cold a few times in between!
In my time as a mother, nursing children back to health, I have developed a few secret weapons in the fight against illness! I hope these tips and tricks help you get your family on the road to recovery the next time someone isn’t feeling so good!
Having an adequately stocked medicine kit is the first thing any parent or caregiver can do. It is better to have supplies on hand than to be dashing out in the middle of the night to find what your child needs to feel better!
In my medicine kit you will find Children’s Advil®, Children’s Robitussin® and Children’s Dimetapp ® as well as bandages in assorted sizes, antibiotic ointment, cold packs and a few freezer pops.
You can 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 with a syringe for easy dosing for children 6-23 months.
Formulated just for kids, Children’s Robitussin® DM Day/Night Pack (Children’s Robitussin® Cough & Chest Congestion and Children’s Robitussin® Nighttime Cough) 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® tackles a child’s most bothersome stuffy and runny noses, all while working to relieve cough.
*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
Designate a bucket for illness use only... you can figure this one out!
Invest in a quality thermometer. A fever needs to be monitored, and there is no room for error when your child is ill.
Offer your child whatever items they enjoy and might be comforted by.
For my youngest, it is a treasured baby doll and crackers. My son enjoys a comic book and white grape juice when he isn’t feeling well. My oldest daughter wants a library book and a lemon-lime soda to feel better. These are small things, but they really seem to help my kids in times of sickness.
Keep Baby Wipes on hand. No matter how old your kids are, a baby wipe can clean hands when a child isn’t feeling up to getting out of bed, they can help to soothe a warm face and they can help keep your family a little fresher when they are not feeling well enough to shower.
How do you help your family to start feeling healthy again after illness? I would love to hear about your tips and tricks for nursing your family back to health!
