‘Tis the season for stuffy noses, nasty coughs, and random fevers. Thankfully we haven’t had any flu-like symptoms around here (knock on wood), but we’ve definitely all felt the effects of cold season. With both Marleigh and Huck in school this year, they tend to bring home lots of germs – and since “sharing is caring,” they usually make their rounds around the entire family.

As such, this past month we’ve been stocking up on all the cold season must-haves and trying our best to stay cozy and calm on the weekends to battle any last lingering germs. When the kids’ colds were at their worst a couple weeks ago, I went to Walgreens to grab a few sick day essentials to help our sniffly, coughing, achy kiddos stay comfortable: Chicken noodle soup, a box of tissues, and our #1 symptom squasher: Children’s MOTRIN®. Motrin always kicks in quick and provides safe comfort when the kids are in need.
Walgreens always comes through when we’re in need of last minute items, no matter what time of day it is. Whether we’re on the road and grabbing wet wipes for travel mishaps, frantically using the photo center to print out last minute family photos for show and tell (guilty as charged), or need a few things to keep us cozy and comfortable while battling nasty colds, we can always find everything we’re looking for in stock in the Walgreens aisles. Everything we need for cold and flu season is on hand and readily available for us when and where we need it – and the employees at Walgreens are always there to help us find what we’re looking for. Which is a huge deal for a busy parent trying to get a sick kiddo on the mend!

We’ve turned to Children’s MOTRIN® since our kids were safely able to take it. Since I experienced a febrile seizure as an infant, I’m always paranoid when Marleigh or Huck spike fevers. Motrin has always provided all of us with quick relief – of symptoms (for them) and worry (for us). The best part about Children’s MOTRIN® is that it’s dye free and alcohol free, meaning we can feel good about giving it to our kiddos when they’re feeling under the weather.
As an added bonus, Walgreens is the only retailer to carry all flavors of the MOTRIN® products, so your little one can pick their favorite – because no one likes struggling to get their kids to take the medicine they need to feel better! (Marleigh and Huck prefer the Original Berry flavor pictured here.)
