As parents, we all dread when our children become sick. No matter the age, I still worry about my girls whenever illness strikes and do everything I can to keep them comfortable. With my youngest two daughters just a couple of years apart, we have definitely experienced our fair share of viruses and infections over the years. Over time, I have learned exactly what I need to keep on hand for sick days and where my go-to shop is for stocking up on essentials.

I will never forget one particularly worrisome late night when my two youngest girls were sick. They were just getting over a stomach virus and then started having cold symptoms. Still too young to express how they were feeling, I knew something was not right as the night progressed. Their temperatures had risen to 105 and we rushed them to the closest pediatric urgent care center with late night hours. The first thing administered to my daughters upon arrival was Children’s MOTRIN®. The doctor had found that they both had severe ear infections. After a few more interventions, their fevers began to come down quickly and we could all breathe again. We were advised to head to our local 24 hour Walgreens to pick up their antibiotics as well as Children’s MOTRIN®. Being that it was very late at this point, I’m sure the worry and stress my husband and I had just experienced was written all over our faces when we entered Walgreens. The employees welcomed us with a warm friendly greeting. Taking a genuine concern for our daughters, they guided us to the exact products we needed. The pharmacist had the prescribed antibiotics ready to go with extra syringes and answered all of our questions. We quickly and efficiently got everything we needed and I was beyond thankful for the kind employees that helped us at that late hour of night.
Since that night, I am always sure to have Children’s MOTRIN® on hand for my daughters. This quick and safe medication, is the one medication I know I can confidently rely on for fever and pain relief. Motrin feels their pain” – Your kid can’t always describe a pain, but they sure do feel it, just like you. I also love that Children’s MOTRIN® Berry Dye Free is free of dyes! My kids love the berry taste (so their is no fight when it comes to getting them to take it) and I don’t have to worry about the addition of any artificial colors. I also like that it works fast and lasts from 6 to 8 hours so my little ones have long lasting relief.
