Tylenol - New Changes and Improvements Heading Our Way

As a mom, I try and do anything and everything in my power to make sure to take care of Broxton as best as I can.
I know when I was pregnant, I was so worried that I would not know what to do, or what was right.
Sure, I had my ups and downs (still do!), but I call it learning!
With that in mind, I knew that I would follow along my moms path and go with the name of familiarity.
That being said, TYLENOL would be in our medicine cabinet.
Not that I hoped to ever need it, but "just in case."

I figure, if it was good enough for my mom to give to me...
and Broxton's doctor to give to him..
Then it was the name we trusted to keep on hand!

We have always depended and trusted in Tylenol.
Did you know that they are rolling out new changes and improved Tylenol?
They should be hitting the shelves as soon as this cold and flu season.
I for one am very happy about this, as it has been hard for me to find a medicine with the same trust as Tylenol for us.

Just what are the Tylenol Updates?
Well, for starters...
The bottle.
The infants Tylenol will include SIMPLEMEASURE.
SIMPLEMEASURE is a new enhanced bottle with a protective opening and a push in syringe to help with safety and dosage.
The syringe will allow for a more accurate dosage as well as reduce spillage.
Also with this new feature, it makes it more difficult for children to open and take.

The dosage is a big one.
When the new bottles come out, the INFANTS TYLENOL as well as the CHILDREN'S TYLENOL will have the same concentration of acetaminophen.
You might wonder why they would do that...
The people at Tylenol are trying to reduce incorrect dosage.
But changing the dosage, they are aiming for a more standardized dosage across the board, as to eliminate error.
With all the bottles, the proper dosing device will be included.

(Other children's acetaminophen brands are going to start the transition as well, so be extra careful when purchasing medication.)

During the initial transition, you might actually have both bottles with different dosages.
Please, as always, be extra careful when giving anyone medication!


REMEMBER TO NURSE:

Never give adult medicines to children.

Use the measuring device (syringe, dropper, dosage cup) that comes with the medicine every time you use it. Don’t use kitchen spoons (teaspoons or tablespoons).

Read and follow instructions on the label. Never give more than the recommended dose and do not give the medication more frequently than recommended.

Store all medicines out of the reach of children. Immediately following use, always restore the child resistant cap and put the medicine back into a high and out of sight location.

Every child grows. Know the infant's or child's weight and/or age to help determine the appropriate dosage.

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by MomCentral Consulting on behalf of Tylenol and received a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
