Pedia Care Product Review & Giveaway



I have using PediaCare Products since my oldest son was a baby (8 years to be exact).

I absolutely love their products and so do my kids!! We start taking them on the hint of sniffles and within a day or 2 they are usually gone. They also love the flavors they provide too.

I know when I was little the flavors of medicine were horrible. I tried the PediaCare medicines and they are yummy!! I know why my kids love to take their medicine. They have never once given me any trouble with taking it.

The only thing I ever found was giving them medicine when they were babies. I always had such a hard time. Well I don't have that problem any longer. They now provide a plastic syringe that suctions the medicine out and I can just push it right into my daughters mouth. Literally takes me a second and she doesn't fuss at all.
I love it!!!

We had the honor of reviewing 2 of their products:

Parents Take Note: Stock Your Medicine Cabinet with PediaCare® and Little Remedies®-Among the First Single-Concentration Acetaminophen Brands with New Dosing Features








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®.
