PediaCare & Little Remedies New Dosing Features: Review & Giveaway

Acetaminophen is one of the most commonly used pain reliever for adults and also for infants and children especially as a fever reliever.  Acetaminophen is safe and effective when used as directed.  Dosing can be misinterpreted by parents especially by new parents who are in a hurry to dose with a sick child.  Now dosing has been made even easier for parents and safer for children.  PediaCare® offer additional product enhancements, including age-appropriate dosing devices.

Infant products will now contain a special dosing syringe and flow restrictors on the bottles. 

Children’s products, for ages 2 to 11 years, will have the bottles with flow restrictors, and continue to contain dosing cups. Both infant and children’s formulations will continue to have weight-based instructions on the package, as well.  I really like the flow restrictors, there will no longer be any overflow of product.

While the new single-concentration for PediaCare infants’ and children’s acetaminophen products are among the first to hit store shelves, you should know that there will be a "transition period" during which the existing infant products and the new acetaminophen infant PediaCare® products may be on store shelves at the same time.  Differences may occur between the new and existing products - the new infants’ formula is less concentrated and the dose is therefore more than in the older infant formulation.   And while reading and following package directions is always recommended to obtain accurate dosing instructions, it will be important, while the two concentrations are available, to select the dose that is proper for the specific product version that is being given. Parents and caregivers should ask a healthcare professional if they have any questions.

Check out this Educational Video, where Dr. Jim Sears discusses the changes to single-concentration Acetaminophen Brands with new dosing features.

Well first off No flu shot. Get sick when we get them. We stay active workout almost every day. We eat good food, take vitamin and supplements. Don't worry to much being around sick people because they are contagis a week or two befor. Plus your body gets immune to some thing if your around it. No chicken p parties though lol.
