What Makes Me Smile? My Girls, Of Course! #SmilingItForward #Sponsored

For decades, moms and pediatricians have relied on TYLENOL® to provide relief from fever and pain. The smile of good health is one every child deserves and every mom should see.”

“I’m SMILING IT FORWARD because…my girls are finally feeling much better after being sick for the past two weeks with a nasty head cold that has been going around.  I don’t know about you, but it is so hard to watch my little ones sick.  While Savannah is talking more and can let us know when she has an ache and where, Arabella, on the other hand, is just starting to talk.  And, Arabella is usually the one who gets sick first, and then passes it along to Savannah (and myself).  So, I have to watch for signals that she is not feeling well like a runny nose, congestion, fever, loss of appetite, vomiting, etc.  Then, I get to play detective and try and figure out what is ailing her.  And, because Bella is under two years of age, she is limited to the types of over the counter medicine I can give her.  Ever since Savannah turned three years old in July, it has been so much easier to treat a head cold, fever, tummy troubles, etc, as I can simply go to the pharmacy and pick up OTC medicine for children her age and above.

One product that has become a lifesaver in our house, and has found a spot front and center in the medicine cabinet is Infants’ TYLENOL®.  What I love most about Infant’s TYLENOL® is that it is appropriate for children 2-3 years of age.  So, when my daughter, Savannah, is under the weather, and I want to bring some relief, I can reach for Infant’s TYLENOL® to help reduce fever and pain she may be experiencing.  And, in just a couple short months, Arabella will be turning two years old, and I can start using this mom-approved medicine with her (per consultation with her pediatrician before administering).   “When it comes to reducing fevers and relieving pain in children, Infants’ TYLENOL® is the #1 brand recommended by pediatricians and has been used by moms for over 20 years.  Infants’ TYLENOL® relieves minor aches and pains due to the common cold, flu, headache, sore throat and toothache. Infants’ TYLENOL® also temporarily reduces fever. “

NOTE:  “It’s important to make sure you're giving the right dose for your child's weight and age, so follow the dosing instructions on the label.  If you have any questions about dosing or giving your child an over the counter medicine, it is important to consult your pediatrician  If your child is under two years of age you should talk to your pediatrician about individual dosing for your baby. Kids over the age of 2 can also take Children’s TYLENOL®.  Like any other over the counter medicine, Infants’ TYLENOL ® has a drug facts label that contains complete information about the product, including warnings and directions for use. Please always read and follow the label.”

Here are photos of my girls that I took the other day after they had been sick for two weeks with a nasty head cold, which made me smile.

Their smiling faces really make my day, especially when they are not sick.  What does it mean to you as a mom to see your child smile after they have been sick?  Upload your own photo that makes you smile on the SMILING IT FORWARD™ website and encourage your family and friends to do the same.  By simply sharing a photo that makes you smile, TYLENOL® will make a $1 donation to Children's Health Fund (up to $100,000).

I am not alone when it comes to loving TYLENOL® products, for my family. “A self-proclaimed TYLENOL® mom, actress Alyson Hannigan, mother of Satyana, 4, and Keeva, 1, knows the importance of seeing her child’s “feel better” smile–the wide-eyed grin that comes after a fever has been reduced or pain has gone away.  She joined SMILING IT FORWARD™ to support TYLENOL® in helping to provide high-quality healthcare, like her daughters receive, to children in need.”

In addition to sharing photos at, you can go on the site to view the TYLENOL® Smile Gallery, learn more about Alyson Hannigan and Children’s Health Fund, and receive tips from leading pediatrician, Dr. Tanya Altmann, about keeping families smiling through cold and flu season.
