Another infant Tylenol recall!

Another infant Tylenol recall!

A few months ago infant concentrated drops Tylenol was recalled because so many children were overdosing on the medication. The dosage from the concentrated drops is less than a quarter of the liquid drops and many parents were following the wrong dosage information when giving the medicine to their babies.

So, everyone felt calm and assured that their baby would be okay when all of the concentrated drops were recalled and we were given these liquid suspension drops that had a safe dosing system. Well-come to find out, the dosing system is not safe at all! J&J just recalled over 574,000 bottles of grape flavored liquid infants Tylenol because the dosage was off for the product! While no adverse effects have been reported yet, the previous suspension recall resulted in serious harm and even death in some infants. If you have any of this product, dispose of it and look into another brand us moms can actually trust. 

It honestly disgusts me that Tylenol would release yet another product that could cause harm to these babies. If the dosage is too high, the baby will have severe liver damage and possible failure. I’ve officially crossed Tylenol off my list of brands I trust. I don’t feel comfortable giving my 7 month old son medicine to begin with, but when your child is teething and in pain what else can you do when all else fails? Turn to a medicine you trust-right? Well not so much. Tylenol has failed us parents again with a faulty product and I personally would encourage all parents not to take the risk by giving the children Tylenol infant products at any cost.
