Some of these are frightening and painful lessons that I have learned on my own. I share them here to spare you from making the same mistake.
1. Separate your child medicines. Give them their own cabinet/ shelf.
My reason for tell you this is I gave my daughter Children’s Motrin when I meant to give her Benadryl. She is not supposed to have Motrin while being treated for cancer. After talking with her oncology nurse, she will be ok. But I cannot tell you horrid I feel. Her care is my responsibility.
2. Even if you think you know which medicine you have picked up. READ THE LABEL.
