In this episode of The Healthy Children Show, Little Laura shares her top five safety tips for dosing and giving liquid medication. Remember to always use the dosing device that comes with your child's medicine. If there is no dosing device, ask your pediatrician or pharmacist for one that should be used. Medication should not be measured in teaspoons or tablespoons, especially not spoons taken from a kitchen drawer. Wow, what a dose of great information!
As always, you can get more information from our website, HealthyChildren.org, and of course from your pediatrician.
