One of my biggest fear as a parent is giving my child too much medicine and of course no one wants to forget an important dosage of antibiotics. Shortly after having my second son, Charlie I came up with a quick and failsafe way to keep track of making sure I had given out the correct number of medicine dosages when the kids were sick. This mommy hack takes less than 30 seconds and will keep you from asking yourself “did I give him is meds today?”
Step one: Grab a sticker or piece of paper and tape or apply it to the medicine bottle.
Step two: Using a permanent marker write out how many days the meds will be given and how many times per day.
Step three: Make a check next to each day and/or dosage given to the child.
