I wanted to post this email that I got a few days ago from BabyCenter about the upcoming changes to infant medicine.
“Keep your eyes open for a new type of infant acetaminophen, designed to help avoid dangerous overdoses. U.S. drugmakers are phasing out the old concentrated infant drops and replacing them with a safer, less concentrated liquid.
For a while, you’ll see both old and new types of this popular pain reliever in stores – and possibly in your home medicine cabinet. It’s critical to know which one you’re using, because following the dosing recommendation for the new medicine while administering the old one could seriously harm your child.
You’ll recognize the new product because it includes a syringe (for more accurate dosing) instead of a dropper. If it’s not already in stores near you, it will be soon.“
