I don’t know about you but here in New England, the weather starts to dip once September hits. That’s when the kids’ cold season hits. In between football practice, myself, my husband, and having a six-year-old, it’s so easy for them to come home with some type of cold once the cooler weather hits. Having a grade-schooler, you are bound to get some type of virus. I’m always looking for the next new medicine.
I’ve learned some tricks to make it a little easier with kids during the cold season:
1 | Keep Children’s TYLENOL® Dissolve Packs on hand
Our nearest Walgreens pharmacy just got revamped, so they had all the newest products out on the end caps. I was so intrigued when I happened to glance over at the Children’s TYLENOL® Dissolve Packs. I was impressed with how nifty they are. I can throw a bunch of these in my bag when those unexpected times come up.
This can be a great hack for parents. No more fighting during cough/cold/ fever season with kids. Plus, I know I can always get my emergency needs met at such great prices at Walgreens through their rewards program.
Growing up, my mom would always give me Children’s TYLENOL® whenever I got sick. My fever and cold symptoms would be relieved. Now, they have these Children’s TYLENOL® Dissolve Packs—these relieve fever as well.
Effective pain & fever relief. They are super easy, especially if you are on the go. Children’s TYLENOL® Dissolve Packs are new and easy to give kids and it dissolves on their tongue in seconds. They are already pre-measured, so there’s no having to use a syringe or medicine cup. It also comes in a great-tasting Wild Berry flavor.
Make sure your talk to your child’s doctor if you have any questions or concerns with anything including on how to use product as directed.
2 | Instill a rewards program
Rewards always work for us. A dislikes taking any medication, especially when he really needs it. I’m that one mom chasing around their child when it comes to giving them medication. That’s why rewards charts work. We use one regularly, so adding this to the routine is super easy. He’ll get a star, which equals some type of reward we both agree upon.
3 | Keep them hydrated
Everyday A gets sent off to school with a stainless steel cup. Hydration is key. Especially when it comes to kids. When they are sick it’s hard to keep them on track of what they are drinking.
4 | Take a day off if they need
Sometimes with the change in weather, especially here in New England kids just need a day off. No matter if it is from school, extracurriculars or just needing some downtime at home to recoup.
DON’T FORGET TO PICK UP YOUR Children’s TYLENOL® Dissolve Pack, Available at Walgreens.
