This week’s sponsor

Be precise with the right device | Sponsored by KnowYourOTCs.org

With cold and flu season here, our sponsor KnowYourOTCs.org is on a mission to ensure all parents follow the dosing directions and use the measuring device that comes with the medicine. Did you know that 1 out of 5 parents think it’s okay to use a spoon to measure medicine? And that 8 out of 10 parents have accidentally given their kids the wrong dose?

OTC medicines are serious medicines, and it’s important that parents and caregivers administer them safely. It’s simple: just follow the label and use the enclosed dosing cup. They’ve even got a catchy saying to help you remember: Be precise with the right device. Learn more at KnowYourOTCs.org
