FeverAll and Cold Pack Giveaway

Until you experience being a parent, you don't realize how much you will worry when your little ones are sick.  That inability to immediately fix their ills will tear at your heart.  Scary high fevers, persistent coughs, vomiting - all these things will give any parent plenty of worries when their children are young.  It's unavoidable, but I always feel like I'd do anything just to make them feel a little better.

This summer the twins had a stomach virus that they caught on one of our adventures.  Cort was stricken first.  Cort is one of those kids who will spike a fever and then can't keep anything down anyhow - he won't let me near him with the oral pain relievers when he is like that.  I wish I had known about FeverAll when I snapped this picture of him on our living room floor - yes, he was so sick he fell asleep right there on the rug.

FeverAll is an acemtaminophen suppository.  It's an alternative to oral acetaminophen for pain relief and fever reduction.  It's been around for more than 30 years and is the only acetaminophen suppository approved for infants as young as six months (which means it would be perfect for teething episodes if teething upsets your little one's belly, like it did my Pierce!). 
There are different dosages for different ages, so you can find FeverAll for infants, children, and in Jr. strength.  One lucky winner will win a package of FeverAll (in the appropriate strength) plus a cool pack to have on hand for the next time you need it.  Please see the Rafflecopter giveaway below for a chance to win!

Disclaimer:  I have not tried FeverAll.  I was sent a trial package and a cool pack for review purposes, but as my kids have (thankfully!) not been sick, I haven't tried it.  I will certainly be grateful to have this on hand next time the stomach flu hits my house again - which will hopefully be a very long time from now.

It is the worst when they are sick and you can do nothing to help! We had to resort to suppositories with my oldest because he would not take the oral pain/fever medication. They can be a life saver.

We have a cool pack at our house and it has really helped when JDaniel was sick.

Oh I always hated when my girls were sick I always felt so helpless they were so tiny.
I am still that way but hundreds of miles away from them and always want to rush to make them comfortable and better. I guess that stays with you.
Oh I hope you don't get that again they are truly nasty. B

Aww, so scary! I don't have kids yet but I'm sure it's a hard thing to go through. The only way I can relate at the moment is how I feel when an animal is sick and I can't do much about it!

Tina Fariss Barbour said...

I'm glad you haven't had to try these out yet. I know it must be terrible to know the kids are sick and not be able to just take it away immediately.

Grandma Bonnie said...

I learned that Fever All comes in adult strength. That would be good when we are vomiting and have a fever.

Becca said...

I learned that FeverAll has products for every age group--pretty cool!

Valerie said...

I hate it when Amy is sick. I'm like you-I'll do anything to help make her feel better. Now I worry about when she goes off to college in a couple years and gets sick and I'm not there to take care of her. The worrying never does end!

This does look like a great product-and I hope you don't need it for a long time too!

Interesting, we never knew about that.

I learned the feverall can be given per rectal route which is easier to manage with children.

I learned that it is perfect for children that have issues with taste, additives in liquids or drops, or are upset, restless, experiencing nausea and vomiting. Sounds great!

One thing that I learned about fever is that it is actually a good thing. My mom told me, during my sons first fever, that it is like a boiling pot of water on the stove. As long as there is water in there, it is ok.
