Thank you Dr. Sears for Saving my Life...

Ok... The title may be a little dramatic... but any mom would appreciate this story.

Picture this... It's 3:00 in the morning and DS#1 wakes up with 101.3. You have one dose of Tylenol left and he takes it.

Phew... No problem, you can go to CVS tomorrow morning.

Now... It's 3:15 and DS#2 wakes up with 102.

What do you do?

Did I add that there is a snowstorm going strong and the roads are iced?

All that you find in your cabinet is Motrin Infant Drops.

....Add here your choice of freak out.....

Wait, no need to put on those snow boots yet... check out what Dr. Sears says to do.

This website is filled with information. I went straight to the medicine cabinet and looked up Motrin.

Did you know that 1 tsp (5ml) of children's liquid and ½ tsp (2.5 ml) of infant drops both contain 100mg of Ibuprofen? If you run out of one form, the other can be substituted.
(Please refer with Dr. Sears' site before you administer this.)

This saved my life last night!

Well now it's 1:00 and all is well in the Groovy household. I will run to CVS later to restock on the kiddies' medicines and will enjoy some "mommy time" when the boys are home with dad.

One more problematic situation diverted by the good ole' internet... how did we (and our mothers) survive without it!
