My first responsibility has always been the safety and well-being of my young. I choose caretakers selectively, carefully screening. That means pediatricians, babysitters, and companies who market baby and toddler products. Our little ones can’t talk and tell us everything.
Back in the 60’s, doctors still recommended baby aspirin. Then they learned better. In the era before competing brands, store brands, and genetics, Tylenol became the gold standard. Take it from my experiences with it and my own four kids then their kids that followed. For fever, aches, and pains, Infants’ and Children’s Tylenol worked well.
About a year ago, McNeil, Tylenol’s manufacturer, decided on a VOLUNTARY precautionary recall of some of its products. The recall was not caused by any adverse medical events whatsoever. By fall, in time for the cold and flu season, Tylenol will have its entire line of cough, cold, flu, and non-medicated products again available on store shelves. Tylenol has decided now the time for specific packaging, concentration, and availability enhancements. Check out the official Tylenol products update page for specifics on bottle and dosage and for a $1 off offer.
Worried about product reliability? No need. Want an update on the situation? I understand. Please visit www.tylenol.com. Dr. Ed Kuffner, MD, knows Tylenol AKA acetaminophen, its features both old and new. His advice is to follow directions. His NURSE tips are the best.
- Never give adult medicines to children.
- Use the measuring device (syringe, dropper, dosage cup) that comes with the medicine every time you use it. Don’t use kitchen spoons (teaspoons or tablespoons).
- Read and follow instructions on the label. Never give more than the recommended dose and do not give medication more frequently than recommended.
- Store all medicines out of the reach of children. Immediately following use, always restore the child resistant cap and put the medicine into a high and out of sight location.
- Every child grows. Know the infant’s or child’s weight and/or age to help determine the appropriate dosage.
I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Tylenol and received a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
