Life with a Preschooler... #SickJustGotReal

#SickJustGotReal

Stuffy/Runny noses, sneezing, coughs, fevers, chest congestions, pain, and Itchy, Watery Eyes.... That's what I have to deal with on a monthly (occasionally Bi-Weekly) basis with my school attending toddler. A few weeks ago we were invited to an event in NYC with the pediatric brands of Pfizer, such as Children's Advil®, Children's Robitussin®, and Children's Dimetapp®, and boy did I learn a lot more than I thought I knew! Here's when I knew #SickJustGotReal


As parents, we have all experienced the "Ew" moment.... Or shall I say the "Ewwww, OMG! Why????" moment. That's when your sweet, happy, joyful kid touches the most germ infested object they can find. When my kid is in school I know she touches so many germs. I know this because I've witnessed the kids clean their mucus on their hands or sleeve, then touch the toy someone else is using. There is where the cycle of germ passing begins.



The day of the event, Gabby had a cold. She was feeling a mess in prior days, but the Children's Robitussin® we were giving her made her feel like a brand new person. Advil® is another product we trust whenever she gets a fever because it's straight to the point! After just one dosage, she is ready to play again. One dosage of Children's Advil® actually contains less liquid than one dosage of Children's Tylenol®.

Overall, we had a great time connecting, mingling, and learning about all the "EW" moments in the world. The Park, School, and even the School Nurse's Office is contaminated with millions, billions, or even more Germs! And don't blame yourself like I did. Kids get sick no matter how much you do to prevent it.

Let's Chat: Are you a fan of the Pfizer Pediatrics line ? Which one is your Go-To for the sicky days?

  1. It does not matter the age, any daycare, preschool or school kid is going to get sick over the winter months. Am always stocked with these Pfizer favorites.

    1. Apparently we have to go through this multiple sickness in a short amount of time until the kids are about to start high school.

  2. Children's Advil is definitely our go-to. I always have it in the house. However, my oldest was coughing last week and Robitussin helped him.

  6. These facts about germs make me want to live in a bubble! Especially as a Mom in NYC. Does your child always touch the railing in the subway? That bothers me so much. Ewwwww!
