I received complimentary samples of Children’s Advil to facilitate this review. The opinions in this post are 100% mine. You can read my full disclosure policy here.
‘Tis the season for sick kids. Actually I’m the only one that’s really gotten sick this winter and I’m currently on the tail end of a nasty cold. Fingers crossed we all stay healthy from here on out but it seems like the germs are going around so while I’m hopeful, I’m not holding my breath. When the kids are sick it’s the absolute worst. I’d do anything to take their pain and discomfort away and I know all you moms and dads feel the same way.
Children’s Advil is my new go-to when the kids are sick or in pain. My daughter had a bad headache recently and one dose of Children’s Advil took care of it lickety split. What I love about Children’s Advil is that it there is no other over-the-counter medicine for kids that relieves a fever faster or keeps it down longer. The quicker and longer I can help my child feel better, well, that’s a win. Children’s Advil provides up to 8 hours of relief. Other medicines have only worked for us for about 4 hours so I love the longer relief and just giving the kids less medicine overall. It also means the kids aren’t likely to wake up in the middle of the night needing more medicine. Sleep!! I should note that Children’s Advil is recommended for ages 2-11 and there is an Infants’ Advil for ages 6-23 months. They make both varieties in flavors that kids won’t fight you on. Mine tend to prefer the grape flavor and I really like that it comes there’s a dye-free option.
Most schools and daycares ask that you keep your child home for 24 hours after the fever has passed to avoid sharing germs. I personally like that policy, but it can be a little rough being home with kids that aren’t too sick to function yet aren’t really well enough to go to school. Can you believe Children’s Advil even has a cure for that fever?
Yes, cabin fever while recuperating can be treated by Advil, too. On their Facebook page they have an awesome Feel-Better Activity Center that has lots of activities for the kids that will keep them busy and entertained while they rest up and get back to themselves. This is SO much fun to explore with the kids. (I have enjoyed the ideas on these frozen-tundra-no-school-days, too!).
Browse all the activities, games, and recipes and add them to your ‘play list’ and create a great group of ideas to keep you happy and on the mend. Love this so much! They’ve even added wellness breaks for temperature checks, fluids, and rest time.
This is the Play-List we came up with. So many fun ideas that the kids got excited about and a tired Mom had a hard time coming up with on her own. The Children’s Advil Feel-Better Activity Center is a fantastic resource for recovering kids and their parents.
You can learn more about Children’s Advil products on their website, and follow on Facebook to be able to access the Feel-Better Activity Center. Though I wish you nothing but good health for you and your kids all year round, it’s great to know what’s best to reach for when sickness hits (because unfortunately it probably will at some point).
