This is a partnered post with Pfizer Consumer Healthcare. All thoughts and reviews are my own.

I love this time of year! With this time of year comes all the holiday decorations, music, treats, lights and festivities. With it also comes the flu and colds – boo! With 6 kids in our home, we have to be prepared with medicines when (not if) one of our kids get sick. We always have a variety of Pfizer pediatric products on hand and keep in the medicine cabinet in our bathroom.

This holiday season, you can combat the ickies with three solutions – Children’s Advil®, Children’s Robitussin® and Children’s Dimetapp®.
