How to Organize Your Kids' Medications, Supplements + First Aid #MyLittleRemediesMonday, April 25, 2016
For infants, most medications are based on weight/age and your pediatrician will recommend the right dose for your child or they most likely will have it listed on their website for medications like acetaminophen or ibuprofen. Knowing that dose right away when a fever spikes is priceless to me and most of all if there is someone else caring for my children.
I just use ziploc bags and a standard label. This would be much fancier if I'd printed labels but hand writing works fine too. I also add the child's name on OTC medications that are specifically for them. Since my two boys are 1 and 4, pain and fever reducers are different, so I make sure they are clearly labeled!
4. Dispose of all expired medication regularly.
This will really keep your bin from getting messy and over flowing with boxes and bottles! Every couple of months, just pull it down and clean it out! Also, throw away some of those syringes and cups. We have a habit of letting those pile up, so just match them up with the medication they are used for and keep a few extra but not too many or you'll start finding them in the bottom of your dishwasher and garbage disposal... I speak from experience.
5. Keep a few regularly used items stocked.
Right now when you buy 1 Little Remedies product , you can get a $5 Target Gift Card (4/24 through 5/14). You can find this product and other in the Digestive section at Target. They are not in the baby section by the way!
