Being Prepared for When #SickJustGotReal & a Giveaway

Couch_BannerThis is a sponsored post on behalf of Pfizer. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I thought we were doing so well this year. We made it to December with not one sick day. It was a miracle. It was too good to be true. It was good while it lasted. This past week we were hit with our first flu of the season. The puking in the middle of the night all over the sheets kind of sick. Now we’ve all gotten it and its a total puke-fest at my house and we’ve all been taken down…

Thank goodness for good medicine and puppy snuggles, thats all I’m sayin.

It’s been a doozy to say the least but thankfully in terms of medicines to help my sweet little girls feel better, I was prepared. Our medicine cabinet is all stocked up with all the essentials for times just like this – Children’s Advil®, Children’s Robitussin® and Children’s Dimetapp® are all ready to go.

We’ve had lingering night time coughs and its woken my girls up multiple times during the night and Children’s Robitussin® helps ease their coughs and with the nighttime cough it helps my oldest daughter get a good nights rest.

It also has a nice berry flavor that makes giving her medicine easier with her very picky tastes.

Being sick sucks but I was grateful that we were prepared and ready to tackle the symptoms with our first sickness of the season. Make sure your medicine cabinet is stocked up for when Sick Gets Real in your home.

Leave me a comment on what your tips are when Sick Gets Real in your home and enter the giveaway for a $25 Visa Gift Card and (1) Children’s Advil® Suspension (various flavor), (1) Children’s Robitussin® DM Day/Night Pack and (1) Children’s Dimetapp® Cold & Cough
