PediaCare® review and giveaway***CLOSED

Comfort Mom Can Trust

Statistics show that preschool-aged children have around nine colds per year, kindergartners can have 12 colds per year and adolescents have about seven colds per year (cold season runs from September through March/April).

This could potentially mean a lot of days off from school or missed days from work for mom and dad! We can’t keep the kids home every time they have a runny or stuffy nose with an occasional cough but the question most of us are faced with is what products are safe and effective for our children; helping to keep them comfortable while they fight the cold.

Introducing, the PediaCare® line of products – with and without acetaminophen -- for children and infants – which address most sick-child situations: cough, cold, allergy, flu, congestion, fever and pain. Product offerings, in kid-pleasing flavors, match the formulations of the recent recall of children’s Tylenol products. In particular, PediaCare Infant and Children’s fever and pain reducers are a great solution for moms wanting a branded acetaminophen alternative.

Not a fan of going to the drug store to buy cold medicines? No problem…To guide parents in choosing the best over-the-counter medicine for their child, PediaCare® launched the PediaCare Shopper’s Guide, a free iPhone application that helps parents with children ages 1-11 to select the product which best addresses the symptoms their child is experiencing. It also helps parents to understand which products require a dosage recommendation from a pediatrician based on age restrictions. The PediaCare Shopper’s Guide also supplies you with complete product information, including a link to the PediaCare website for full product descriptions including dosage directions.

The iPhone application is not a diagnostic tool, but is designed for informational purposes only and does not constitute a medical diagnosis. The new iPhone application is available for free download at or on iTunes.

Availability: PediaCare products retail for approximately $6.99 for a 4 oz. bottle, and are available at drugstores, supermarkets and retailers nationwide. For more information about PediaCare products, visit

Independentmami review-Have you been woken up in the middle of the night with a crying child? Have you gotten that call from school or day care, you know the fever call? My son has had stubbord fevers where I have tried everything. PediaCare was recommended by his doctor. And it actually worked for us.
