Minimize Your Coughequences with Robitussin #MomMixer #COUGHequences

 

This is a paid sponsored post for Robitussin. Robitussin was a sponsor of our Mom Mixer event. As always all thoughts and opinions are my own

The weather is chilling and with it comes the season of germs – coughs, colds, and flu. Yuck! We were excited that Robitussin partnered with us on our Mom Mixer event in Philadelphia earlier this month to showcase their line of products to our Mom guests. They created a very informative and fun booth. Whitney and I were impressed with these oversized  display Robitussin product boxes. Genius right?

Our guests – and our children – loved toying around with their Wheel of Coughequences. Nobody wants a cough to ruin their holiday!

To help families avoid the “COUGHequences” of cold and flu this season, Robitussin® has a variety of products tailored to effectively treat different symptom combinations. These include:

·        New, convenient Robitussin® DM Max liquid-filled capsules – perfect for travel and cough control on-the-go

·        New Robitussin® DM Max nighttime cough formula to control cough and help you get the sleep you need to feel better.

·        Robitussin® Children’s long-acting cough syrup that relieves cough symptoms for up to eight hours

Moms were able to visit the Robitussin booth to find out why Robitussin® products have effectively treated cough, cold and flu symptoms for more than 50 years, and is doctor recommended and the #1 pharmacist recommended brand among cough, cold and flu liquid combination products.

Robitussin has a variety of maximum strength products to treat not only cough, the #1 symptom of cold sufferers, but also the worst cold and flu symptoms.

Our guests also received these goody bags from Robitussin that included a care package that is just what you need to pull out when your sick – chicken noodle soup and tea. What a cute idea!

Robitussin also has a “Coughcast” Tool on their website which showcases a Cough Map across the USA. I love checking these tools out when I’m traveling during flu season – luckily right now the map is calm but come New Year’s I’m sure it will sadly be showing a lot more activity!

Selecting a cough and cold remedy when you are sick can be overwhelming as there are various combination products available. To find out which Robitussin product is right for you based on your symptom, visit  Robitussin.com to learn more about their products.
