AccuDial Weight Based Dosing for Children Review & GIVEAWAY!

Summer has ended, and the kids are back at school. You know what that means, right? Ummm hmmmm...Time to pass around colds and flus. Yay.

Though my little one is not at school yet, she does attend early learning playgroups and other activity groups that foster learning in children. This means she is in contact with her peers on a regular basis. Snotty, runny noses, here we come!

My biggest worry about administering meds to my child is whether or not I am giving her the correct dosage. A lot of times, the label on the box tells you a dosage by age. Well, my two year old is a very tiny two year old. Wouldn't it make more sense to give a dosage based on weight instead of age? I've often wondered about that. Thankfully, I was introduced to Children's AccuDial and they've thought about that as well!

From the company website:
Children’s AccuDial® is a revolutionary line of OTC medications designed to give your child an accurate dose of medicine. The weight of children in the same age group can vary greatly, and they should not always be given the same amount of medicine. According to the American Medical Association, 72% of children are dosed inaccurately with OTC medications. Using the patented AccuDial rotating dosing system, simply turn the outer label of the bottle and match the child’s weight with the correct dose listed in milliliters!
Now, doesn't that make sense? Children's AccuDial has sent me some of their Pain & Fever rotating dosage label. It relieves fever, aches, and pain and comes in cherry flavour. Suitable for children ages 2 and up.
Even my husband was impressed by the rotating dosing system.Want to see how Chidlren's AccuDial works? Click here for a demo. It's pretty cool, isn't it? Now all the guess work is taken out of administering proper doses of meds!

The AccuDial product line includes:
Pain & Fever
Cold & Stuffy Nose
Chest Congestion
Cough & Cold
Runny Nose & Cough
Nite Time Cold & Cough
Day Time Cough & Cold
