We all know how scary our first sick child can be. It’s probably just a fever, right? But what if… Our mommy-minds envision the worst and then the next thing we know its 2 am and we’re racing to the ER. False alarm! We knew it, but it won’t stop us from worrying next time, because well, that’s what moms do best.
That’s exactly how I felt when my first daughter got a fever for the first time. I felt helpless and unsure. Squinting to read the dosing label, the last thing I wanted to do was to overdose my little baby girl. There had to be a better way… and their is!
After having 2 more children, I’m a little more confident simply from experience. But it would have been a lot easier had I know about this free dosing and health resource tool. Now I have 24/7 access to information about common health concerns, and a dosing calculator that gives me the correct dosage every time!
New Children’s Health and Wellness App
I couldn’t believe how many new things I learned with this new app. from TYLENOL®. It keeps all your children’s health stats and symptoms in one place so you are ready when your children get sick or for the next doctor’s visit and it’s safe and easy to use. This is a must have for new parents!
After downloading the free Children’s Wellness App, I entered my children’s information and set up a privacy pin.
For some reason, my kids teethe until they are 2-years-old! That means, they get fevers often. If they are in a lot of pain and have a fever over 102 F I usually give them an infant fever reducer, but I’m not always sure how much to give. The dosing calculator in this app gave me some very important information.
Although I was giving my son Infant TYLENOL® after talking with my doctor, I learned that I can give him Infant MOTRIN® without having to contact my doctor! If your doctor uses the app too, you can receive the correct dosage directly from him through the app.
Included in the App is some very important information about treating fevers, common colds, ear infections, and when it’s time to call the doctor.
You can also keep track of your children’s vaccines, other medicines, and symptoms. This would be perfect if you have an infant and want to make sure you are up to date on vaccines or if they have a symptom that you want to talk to your doctor about at their next check up.
I know that the worry wart in me won’t ever go away when it comes to my kids. But now I am very confident about giving my children the right dose and when I should contact my doctor.
Have your children ever given you a quick health scare? Would this app have helped? Please tell me about it and leave a comment!
You can download the Children’s Wellness App from the Apple App Store or on Google Play.
This app looks so helpful! Thanks for sharing. I found your blog @ Works for me Wednesday. I would love it if you linked up at my new linky party: http://www.joyfocusedlearning.com/2013/11/anything-goes-link-up-1.html

Your kids teethe til age 2 because all kids do! (ie “2 year molars”) I am a pediatric nurse practitioner and I jokingly (only not really) warn parents kids teethe from 6 to 24 months!!! Remember any temp over 101 with teething is almost certainly related to illness and not teeth… But I love that you posted about the Tylenol app!!! I think it is an awesome resource for parents. Tylenol is a great company bent on good education. They make these phenomenal Tylenol/Motrin dosing handouts I give all parents at my office. 🙂 cheers and keep up the awesome work!

This app could be a major stress reliever for new parents who suddenly discover that their little one has a fever in the middle of the night. This could help them with instant steps to relieve the fever.
