Parents just need to rely on using their brains to give the proper does to their kids, not rely on the "design of the bottle". When in question, call your doctor or nurse. If you don't have a doctor, most clinics have nurses available 24/7 where a nurse can give you advice! Or if you aren't sure and cannot reach a health professional, don't administer the medication at all. If a child's temperature is so high that it needs medication then please take your child to the nearest hospital, clinic, etc. If you ask most family doctors/pediatricians, most are able to provide you with a handout that shows proper dosing of different types of medication based specifically on the weight of your child instead of dosing a child by age. Both my little ones are very small for their ages, so my 4.5 year old who is only 28 pounds shouldn't be getting the same dose as another kid her age who weighs 38 pounds.

I also agree, they are making it seem like we have to rely on a fancy bottle design to give the correct dose. I don't like that I have to coat the syringe with medicine but recalling tylenol because the bottle was made wrong...sometimes I wonder what are going through these people's heads.

I noticed the change in bottle last time I bought it. The dropper is significantly bigger. Do you know what I did? I gave her the dose the doctor told me to....how hard is that? I didn't even think twice about it. A week or so later when we went to give it to her again my husband grabbed it and noticed the same thing. He gave her the dose too. Neither of us saw a problem lol This is silly. Reading and thinking should be a prerequisite for becoming a parent.

I watched the video. What is confusing? I almost never give my children medicine but my daughter had to take benadryl this summer and that is exactly how the prescription came. I loved it! Super easy. Way better that coating 1/2 the dropper with medicine and trying to squeeze out the extra.

If you read the post it says there is nothing wrong with the medicine, but with the redesigned bottle. Parents are not understanding how to give the right dose. This is a volentary recall, and if you can read and dose properly there is no need to worry,

I agree this recall is kind of ridiculous! It is really sad that because a couple people are too......trying to find a nice way to say it......can't think of it......I don't want to say dumb but it seems to fit best, to understand how it works that they have to recall the whole batch what a waste of resources and money. "Lets freak people out thinking something is wrong with the medicine their child may have taken when all thats wrong is a few people were too nieve to understand a simply designed bottle." Its because of how sue happy this world has become, "I'm too dumb to do this right so I messed up and now I am going to sue the company for my stupidity" and companies would rather just recall the product than get sued. I see warnings on things all the time that are ridiculous and usually common sense type things but are there because someone actually did whatever it is thats being warned about. I personally love the new design it really makes it easier and there is less left over at the bottom of the bottle that you can't get to. I don't understand at all what is so confusing about it. They way things are made out today its a miracle any of us survived to have children of our own!!
