During the summer, our family stays very busy with activities and attending fun local events. I’m always concerned that despite our planning, something will prevent us from venturing out. Typically what happens is one of my children will get sick. They feel miserable, siblings feel disappointed at cancelled plans, mom and dad are both sad, and the worry starts of wondering when the next child will get sick. I remember one year that we were venturing down to Florida and the day before leaving, several kids were coughing and feeling awful. Getting sick before, during, or after a vacation is almost inevitable when you have kids.
Fortunately our kids have stayed healthy this summer, but when sickness strikes, I can be ready with the pediatric brands of Pfizer Consumer Healthcare – Children’s Advil®, Children’s Robitussin® and Children’s Dimetapp®.
Children’s Advil® is a great option for kids from 2-11 years old and helps to ease the aches and pains, while also reducing a fever. With flavors like Sugar-free Dye-free Berry, Bubble Gum, Grape, Blue Raspberry, Fruit and Dye-Free White Grape flavors, there is something for all tastebuds.
For the younger ones, Infants’ Advil® White Grape does a great job in relieving fever and pains in 6-23 month old babies.
Cough won’t quit? Children’s Robitussin® Extended-Release 12 Hour Cough Relief id available in grape or orange flavor, for children ages 4 and up and helps quite coughs both day and night. 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 helps to ease cold symptoms with a great-tasting grape flavor that’s dye-free, for children ages 6 and up.

We were on vacation and my youngest one got a fever and thank goodness I was able to run to the store and they had Children’s Advil!

We had the bad flu last year. It was so horrible. It is so hard when you are Mom and really sick too. So many sleepless nights with worry.

Our poor little guy got sick while we were visiting my in-laws in Florida one Thanksgiving. We actually were planning to go to Homosassa Springs on Thanksgiving Day as a special treat and my son was SO excited to see manatees for the first time. However, he got sick the evening before and started running a fever. Thank goodness for Advil to help keep the fever under control. He was so disappointed to miss seeing the manatees next day and kept crying, “I wanted to see the manateeeeeeees.” 🙁 Thankfully, the day after Thanksgiving, he woke up with no fever and was able to see his manatees. 🙂

My grandson started not feeling well when we were out and about. We headed home and he threw up in car before we could make it. I felt so bad for him!
My niece got really sick when we were on a car trip to Colorado. We kept several bags in the car in case she threw up!

My son got the croup while we were at the beach. I had to sleep with him on the sofa so that we wouldn’t keep everyone awake all night.

I was in Gatlinburg on the one and only vacation I ever went on without my babies and my son got sick…it was awful!
We have had sick kids on trips and it is no fun I swear by Children’s Advil.
We were on a 2-day road trip and I was the one who got sick as a little kid! It was not fun :/

My son had severe allergies and a headache while we were in Hawaii. I had allergy medicine with me but I had to go to the pharmacy to get him some children’s Advil.

It seems like every time we take a trip somewhere one of us gets sick. It’s like a curse. We always travel with a first aid kit and emergency medicine kit. It never fails. We always end up needing it.
We were on vacation and the first day my daughter work up vomiting. Had to leave the hotel to find something for her.

My niece got sick in the car and threw up. I always feel bad and helpless when she gets socks especially on road trips
The first time we travelled overseas with my daughter she was only 5 months old and got a horrible diaper rash and fever. Trying to find the right medicine for her in a country where I didn’t speak the language was terrifying! I’m still a bit scarred from that experience…
Susan Christy says
An allergic reaction to something sent us to the ER.
We were at Universal Studios in April and my poor daughter was sick. Luckily she was better after a couple of days and was able to enjoy the vacation.
My sweet boy just got over sickness
