No mother wants to see her children sick or suffering. But with very young children, it often seems like there isn’t much that can be done to ease the suffering.
A very close friend of the family is a Pediatrician with four young children of his own. He’s warned us several times over the years about using medicine improperly and is always reminding us (and others) how unsafe it can be. There are a lot of parents who think that using a small amount of adult or older child medicine is OK for infants and toddlers. But that’s not the case. Young bodies aren’t able to process the same ingredients and can’t safely ingest medicines made for older bodies.
So whenever my kids get sick, I ask our Pediatrician friend what he recommends – as a professional and as a father. And when my toddler son was sick and miserable last year with a horrible cough and sore throat, our friend told me to go buy the Little Remedies for Colds. I gave it to my son and it worked. He felt better and I felt better finally being able to give him something that relieved his cough and throat pain.
Little Remedies products are exactly what parents of young children have been waiting for. Created by a pharmacist and father, the products are effective and made with ingredients that parents can feel good about giving their children. Little Remedies contain only ingredients that will make our children feel better, without any alcohol, artificial flavors, artificial colorings, dyes or saccharin.
When my little ones are in pain or have fever from ear infections, toothaches, minor aches and bumps or illness, I use Little Remedies for Fevers® Infant Fever/Pain Reliever. It helps reduce their fever and ease their pains, so it’s a great product to always have handy in our medicine cabinet. Plus, Little Remedies for Fevers® Infant Fever/Pain Reliever is one of the only brand name fever reducers currently on the market for infants. It also is the very first children’s medicine brand to adopt the AccuSafe® Dosing system for their infant acetaminophen products. By using the provided syringe attached to a flow restrictor, parents can feel reassured that they’re giving the correct dosing amount.
Of course it’s not always possible to prevent your children from getting sick, but when they do, it’s nice to be able to comfort them with a safe and effective product. There is an entire line of products from Little Remedies to help your little ones, including products to combat cold and flu, stomach ailments and even allergies.
Hopefully your little ones won’t need Little Remedies soon. 🙂 Here are a few tips to help you lower your odds of coming down with something this cold and flu season:
• Scrub: Make sure you wash your hands frequently and help your children do the same. This is one of the best ways to stop spreading germs.
• Other Childrel: Don’t plan playdates with other children if you know they or their siblings haven’t been feeling well.
• Cover: Remember to cover your mouth when you cough and show your little ones how to sneeze and cough into their forearm or elbow. This will prevent germs from spreading to their hands and then to the objects they touch.
• Disinfect: Keep high traffic surfaces clean and disinfected regularly to kill germs.
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Little Remedies. I received product samples as well as a promotional item as a thank-you for participating.
