Sick Just Got Real… Our Sick Day Survival Kit

OshKosh B'Gosh with Dominic

This post has been sponsored by Pfizer Consumer Healthcare and 20th Century Fox. All thoughts and reviews are my own. #SickJustGotReal

My heart breaks when my kids get sick. You know that helpless feeling that takes over, especially when it’s 3 AM and your sweet six year old is having an all out coughing fit that will not go away.  No matter how many drinks of water he consumes, he just can’t shake it. I spent that night begging my son to drink some warm tea and honey, while I scrambled through the medicine cabinet for Children’s Dimetapp. It was in that moment I wondered why I wasn’t prepared and I swore I wouldn’t have a survival kit handy the next time someone needed relief. 

The sick day survival kit necessities:

A Sick Day Movie

Find the perfect sick day movie, Ice Age Collision Course, The Peanuts Movie and The Sandlot currently fit the bill as sick day flicks. One of the best ways for my boys to find relief and take their mind off of being sick is to spend a sick day curled up watching The Sandlot.

The Sandlot: Tom Guiry plays Scotty Smalls, the shy new kid on the block who wants to join the rowdy pickup baseball team that plays every day in the neighborhood sandlot. The summer passes blissfully as Scotty learns to play ball under the wing of Benny Rodriguez (Mike Vitar), the oldest and best player, as well as Ham, Squints, Repeat and the rest of the kid-eccentrics. The skies darken, however, when Benny literally knocks the stuffing out of the team’s only baseball, a sign of impending doom, or worse, bad luck. Wanting to set things right, Scotty returns home and “borrows” his stepfather’s ball, which he promptly uses to hit his first home run, knocking the ball clear out of the sandlot into mean old Mr. Mertle (James Earl Jones)’s junkyard, home to Mertle’s legendary guard dog The Beast.

Aches, pains and fevers

Don’t let the terrible aches, pains and fever get the best of your kiddo. For fast relief my survival kit includes Children’s Advil®, a great solution for kids as young as 2 and up to 11. Children’s Advil® comes in Sugar-free Dye-free Berry, Bubble Gum, Grape, Blue Raspberry, Fruit and Dye-Free White Grape flavors.

Relief from Cough & Chest Congestion

Children’s Robitussin® DM Day and Night Pack is perfect for Cough & Chest Congestion that helps break up chest congestion, while the long-acting nighttime formula relieves coughs and runny noses to help kids get rest.

Relieve Cough

Children’s Dimetapp® Cold & Cough tackles stuffy and runny noses, all while working to relieve cough, for ages 6+.
