Children’s Advil®: Don’t Let the Flu Get You Blue

There are times when I feel like every season is flu season in my house. When one kid gets sick, they all seem to get sick. It never fails.

Gage ended up being diagnosed with the flu a couple of weeks ago. It wasn’t 2 days before I had 3 more children down with fevers. Luckily, Children’s Advil® had sent me a gift pack full of different flavors of their product. I have used Children’s Advil® for years – since Ashley was a baby – and I trust the product to help bring down fevers and help my children feel comfortable again quickly. What I didn’t realize was just how many flavors there are now – and that there’s even one that’s dye free.The kids enjoyed the new flavors, {only used as needed}, and I am thankful for a brand I can trust to help them feel better.

Fevers are scary – I know that. You worry, and you would do anything to bring their fever down and get them back to their old selves.

To help better prepare for fevers during cold and flu season, Dr. Alanna Levine and the makers of Children’s Advil® recommend the following tips to parents:

Fever Relief Tips

  • Stay Cool:  Remember that most fevers are in fact indicators that the body is fighting an underlying illness.
  • Be Prepared: Start the season by talking to a pediatrician about proper fever management.  Also, check the medicine cabinet to ensure that all medications have not expired or been recalled.
  • Watch for Serious Signs.  Generally, it’s time to call a pediatrician:
    • if your child is less than three months old and has a fever of 100 degrees or higher
    • if the fever is over 103 degrees, no matter what the child’s age
    • if the fever lasts more than three days
    • if your child has a fever and looks and acts very sick
    • if you are concerned regarding your child’s health.
  • Long Lasting Relief: When choosing a fever medication, be sure to consider how long the medication will last.  Children’s Advil®, which contains ibuprofen, provides up to 8-hours of relief with one dose.

I use and trust Children’s Advil® with my children, and will continue to do so. If you have any concerns about your child and cold/flu season, talk with your child’s doctor.
