It’s so hard to believe that our kids are back in school. I don’t know about you, but it was somewhat bittersweet for me. We had a great summer and I enjoyed having the kids at home with us. Now that they’re back in school, life is pretty busy again. Complete with homework, science projects, school activities and more, the days seem to go by really fast! While back to school can mean new shoes, clothes, backpacks, as well as what every parent dreads…new germs. Yuck! 

It’s amazing how the sickies tend to spread so quickly at this time of year! As the summer days slowly fade, and fall and cold season begin, it is super important to have essentials on hand to get our kids back on track for school learning and spending time with their friends in school. The Pfizer Pediatric team wants to make that the back to school season goes as smoothly as possible with Children’s Advil®, Children’s Robitussin®, and Children’s Dimetapp® when sick gets real.
