How to Identify “EW” #SickJustGotReal

The Pfizer Pediatric Platform products and information have been provided by Pfizer Consumer Healthcare. All opinions are my own.

It seems like just about this time every year one of my children comes home with some sort of “ew”. The temperatures are now hitting the 30’s overnight and it’s wet and chilly around here. With the weather getting colder, children are staying inside more and it’s like all these germs start multiplying. I try to teach my children to share, but this is one thing I wish all children would keep to themselves.

I’ve taught my children to wash their hands, wash their hands, wash their hands… but no matter what I’ve done to try to stop them from doing or picking up the “ew”-iest things, sick gets real around here. It’s everywhere. It’s at Playdates. Birthday Parties. It’s at School. It’s even on the playground. Case in point, my youngest just recently picked up some “ew” at school and brought it home in the form of a cough that won’t let him rest.

Fortunately we are prepared for the “ew” with Children’s Advil®, Children’s Robitussin® and Children’s Dimetapp®. This cough is bad enough during the day, but when it starts affecting his sleep, it’s war time for Momma.

We are using the Children’s Robitussin® DM Day/Night Pack for kids. The non-drowsy daytime formula helps break up his chest congestion so he can focus at school without coughingup a lung, while the long-acting nighttime formula relieves coughs and runny noses so he can actually stay asleep and get the rest he needs.

Some important facts about “Ew-dentification”:

* According to a recent “Ew-dentification” survey of nearly 500 school nurses nationwide, the most common habits displayed by young children such as nose picking and not washing hands properly is the top cause for germs spreading amongst children at school, according to 69% of nurses surveyed.

* 77% of school nurses said they see winter as the season with biggest spike in illness at school

* More than half of school nurses (59%) ranked the classroom as the easiest place to come in contact with germs, followed by the bathroom, school buses, handrails in hallways, and the cafeteria.

* When it comes to the nurse’s office itself, the top two reasons children go is to ask for medicine or ask to go home.

Pick some up next time you’re out and be prepared in advance. There’s nothing worse than having a sick child and having to drag them to the store to buy medication.

Children’s Advil® and Infants’ Advil®

* The product portfolio contains medicine for kids of all ages, including:

o Children’s Advil® Grape – Reduces a child’s fever fast, while also relieving aches and pains.
