When your child is sick, it’s heartbreaking. Fever, runny noses, cough… it’s terrible, and it affects everyone, not just them. When they’re too uncomfortable to sleep, that means you don’t sleep. And, when Mama doesn’t sleep, it can make getting through the day even harder.
That’s why I always try to do everything I can to make sick days better! I want to make sure my kids are still smiling, even when they just don’t feel like it. So, I made a Sick Day Survival Kit to help my kids get through the toughest days. Here’s what goes into my Sick Day Survival Kit:
- Children’s Advil® – This is what I use to help reduce my little one’s fever fast. It’s made for children 2 – 11, and comes in several great-tasting flavors like Sugar-free Dye-free Berry, Bubble Gum, Grape, Blue Raspberry, Fruit, and Dye-free White Grape. (There is also an Infants’ Advil White Grape made just for little ones that are 6 – 23 months. It provides the same great fever-reducing power, but includes a syringe for easy dosing.)
- Children’s Robitussin® Cough & Chest Congestion – This non-drowsy daytime formula, made just for kids, helps break up chest congestion that can make kids feel miserable, and it helps them get the rest they need.
- Children’s Dimetapp® Cold & Cough tackles stuffy and runny noses and helps to relieve their cough.
- 20th Century Fox films – Movies can always make kids feel better, and with great choices like Ice Age Collision Course, The Sandlot, and The Peanuts Movie from 20th Century Fox films, you’re sure to keep a smile on your child’s face no matter how miserable they are.
- Water bottles – You want to keep your kids hydrated when they are under the weather, and for some reason, my kids will drink from water bottles more than anything else. Stock up on the water, keep it cool, and make sure it’s a part of your Sick Day Survival Kit.
- Snacks – Things like crackers that will keep their tummy from getting to upset but still help them get on the path to healing. You don’t want to overdo the snacks, so use them sparingly.
- Books – Books are always a great way to pass time. If your little one can’t read, select picture books that they can look at themselves. Or, pick a few of your favorites to read with them so you can get some snuggle time in!
- Special Blanket – My kids love to snuggle with a blanket, especially when they are sick, but I have a special blanket that stays in the Sick Day Survival box. That way, germs don’t spread to their favorite blankets, but they can still have something to curl up with on the couch. (I make sure to wash the special blanket in hot water after each use to keep the germs from spreading.)
Even kids as little as my two year old, Sawyer, can benefit from a Sick Day Survival Kit. (And, I have to say – he loved The Peanuts Movie, and I love that the Advil helped bring his fever down so quickly.)
