Tylenol Update and tips for giving medication

My family has been using Tylenol since I was a child, so when my kids are sick or in pain, it's the first brand that I think of... 

One of the things that I like most about Tylenol is that they continually strive to make things easier for parents and they are currently revamping their infant and children's products to make it easier for parents to know that they are giving their children the right dosage!  

As part of their current re-vamp, they are standardizing the dosage and concentration of the active ingredient, acetaminophen between all of their infant and children's products as well as introducing a new bottle that will help make dosing more convenient and more accurate!  You can check out all of the details by clicking on this link to the Tylenol products update page.

I got a chance to see a sneak peak of the new infant bottle and syringe and I have to say that I am looking forward to this new innovation - it looks very similar to the way you see syringes filled in your doctor's office and I think it will be much more efficient than the old eye dropper system!  I know that I was always getting air bubbles in the dropper so I hoarded syringes when I could find them.

Another great tidbit that was shared with me was this great acronym:

Simply remember to NURSE
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 the 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 back 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.
