I think I probably overdose my kids. I have a friend who always UNDERdoses because she’s so paranoid. This scares me because I know sometimes you’re so desperate to stop that cough or that runny nose or that miserable baby/kid laying there thing that its really hard. This little “voluntary” recall combined with last months news that cough suppressants don’t even WORK…sigh.


  1. I feel like I’m in the twilight zone. I went to the pharmacy last night to get my little guy some baby cough drops, only to be told to go home and watch the news.

    I guess it only makes sense that a little fresh air and snuggles with Mom work better than chemicals in a bottle.
