PediaCare Product Review and Giveaway

You know it is that time of year. Cold/ Flu season, running noses and the hacking coughs. I always try and keep children medicine on hand at all times because it never fails for kids to get sick at the most inconvenient time (like when the drug store in closed). If you keep medicine on hand, then you are not in a fit of panic running to the store in your PJs.

Confused about cold/flu medicines for children? Introducing an expanded line of safe and effective medicines from the trusted brand for children, PediaCare® – with and without acetaminophen -- for children and infants -- that addresses most sick-child situations: cough, cold, allergy, flu, congestion, fever and pain. Product offerings, in kid-pleasing flavors, match the formulations of other recalled brands and are arriving in stores just in time for the cold/flu season. In particular, PediaCare Infant and Children’s fever and pain reducers are a great solution for moms wanting a branded acetaminophen alternative.
Need help to determine which medicine is best for your child based on his/her symptoms? Download PediaCare’s free iPhone app, then check off your child’s symptoms and PediaCare will help you determine which product is best for your child based on the symptoms they need relief of. PediaCare is putting the key to your child’s comfort at the tip of your fingers. The iPhone application is not diagnostic but a shopping tool, to help make a trip to the pharmacy a little bit easier and will launch early October and available for free download at www.pediacare.com .

In New Educational Video, Dr. Jim Sears Discusses the Changes to Single-Concentration Acetaminophen Brands with New Dosing Features

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® and Little Remedies® single-concentration acetaminophen products hit store shelves. But what does this mean for parents?

Two of the leading children’s pain relievers, PediaCare® and Little Remedies®, 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® and Little Fevers® 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® and Little Fevers® 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.

The voluntary changes to single-concentration acetaminophen dosing demonstrate the continued commitment to accuracy, safety and innovation from PediaCare® and Little Remedies®.
