PediaCare Acetaminophen Infant & Childrens Liquid (Giveaway)

Having a sick child can be a very stressful time for a family. For me, it’s a feeling of helplessness as I sit by my daughter’s bedside taking her temperature and monitoring her progress. That’s why it’s important to administer the correct medications to ensure that you’re doing everything you can to help them get better.

Acetaminophen is one of the most commonly used pain and fever relievers for infants and children and is safe and effective when used as directed. Now, dosing has been made even easier for parents and safer for children as the new PediaCare single-concentration acetaminophen products hit store shelves. But what does this mean for parents?

PediaCare® now 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.

While the new single-concentration for PediaCare infants’ and children’s acetaminophen products are among the first to hit store shelves, parents 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 simultaneously. 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.

PediaCare Infants Fever Reducer/Pain Reliever:

  • For ages 0-36 months
  • New special dosing syringe and flow restrictor bottles
  • Dye free Cherry
  • New bubble gum flavor as well as cherry and grape
  • Weight and age-based dosing instructions on package
  • Suggested retail price for a 2-ounce liquid bottle is $6.99.

PediaCare Children’s Fever Reducer/Pain Reliever

  • For ages 2 -11
  • Flow restrictor bottle and dosing cup
  • Dye free Cherry
  • Cherry or grape flavors
  • Weight and age-based dosing instructions on package
  • Suggested retail price for a 4-ounce liquid bottle is $7.59.

We received both of these products to try out for ourselves but since none of my girls are currently sick (thankfully) we’ll be keeping them in our medicine cabinet for future use. It’s a great way to prepare for the inevitable since there’s nothing worse than having a sick child and realizing that you don’t have the appropriate medication on hand for them.

So the next time you’re at the store, stock up on PediaCare Acetaminophen Infant & Childrens Liquid. You’ll enjoy the peace of mind of knowing that you’re prepared to take care of your precious children.

Save $1.00 off your next PediaCare purchase. While supplies last.

WIN IT!

    When my kiddos are sick, we veg out on the couch snuggling, eat comfort foods, and they get away with misbehaving because I’m a softy. I give them medicine when they have a fever, of course.
