Now that the season has changed to Fall, it's getting cooler and I have one big concern on my mind, well actually two. The dreaded allergies and the non-stop colds that I know my children are going to suffer through! My kids are now at the age where they can take actual over the counter medications for their ailments so I was thrilled to get the chance to try out two products from the Pedia Care line!
Introducing an expanded line of safe and effective medicines from the trusted brand for children, PediaCare® – with and without acetaminophen -- for children and infants -- that addresses most sick-child situations: cough, cold, allergy, flu, congestion, fever and pain. Product offerings, in kid-pleasing flavors, match the formulations of other recalled brands and are arriving in stores just in time for the cold/flu season. In particular, PediaCare Infant and Children’s fever and pain reducers are a great solution for moms wanting a branded acetaminophen alternative.

My Take: I received the PediaCare Children's Fever Reducer/Pain Reliever (dye free in grape) for ages 2-11 and the PediaCare Children's Fever Reducer Plus Multi-Symptom Cold in grape for ages 4-11. My kids were too young for the multi-symptom cold version so I gave it to a friend with older kids. She said she has used it once and was happy with it. Her kids loved the taste and it seemed to work just as well as the other products she uses. Luckily, I have only used the Fever Reducer/Pain Reliever once with my kids! I agree that it works just as well as the other brands and this is great news. The kids actually even loved the taste more than the medicine that I previously used with them. What I love is they have a weight chart along with the age chart on the back for dosage information. I know many doctors will tell you now to go by weight instead of age. In my instance my daughter is in the 98th percentile for her age so if I went by her age I wouldn't be giving her the right dosage! Another thing I loved was the dosage cup. It was clear instead of that hard to see clouded plastic cups. It was easy to read the dosage amount. All in all I would definitely recommend this to other parents.
