Keeping Track of Your Child’s Medicine Doses~ Good Advice During the Winter Season
I love pretty much everything about Fall and Winter. I think I can count on one hand the things I dislike about the cold months; heating bills, icy roads, and kids getting sick every time you turn around. Honestly, with multiple kids it sometimes feels like someone in our home is sick constantly the whole season! Don’t get me wrong, I feel blessed that they are small illnesses. Colds, ear infections and sinus infections mostly. But with our hectic life, and sometimes multiple children on medicine at the same time, it is easy to lose track of whether or not someone got their dose that morning/evening. And then if you add 2 parents in there, what if one of us gives the medicine not realizing that the other one already gave it to them?
Here is the solution: Use a sharpie, or put a small label on the bottle of the medicine. I tried the Sharpie, but with the red bottle, I didn’t feel like my oldish sharpie was dark enough. My son is taking his medicine for 10 days 2 times a day starting on the 12th. I made 2 columns, one for am and one for pm and listed the dates down the side. Now my husband and I can keep track of when we gave him his medicine to make sure neither of us are double dosing him and that the child is actually getting all of the doses of the medicine so it can be most effective.
