Re: new recall on all presc. for colds for infants

It was only for infant cold medicines (for under 2 years old). Children's products for ages 2+ are all OK and available. The reason for the recall (which was voluntary but I think all companies did it) was simply because too many parents overdose their infants due to the concentrated infant formulas. You can always ask your ped. how much children's medicine to give if you have a LO under 2. I think they also said that kids under 2 shouldn't be given cold remedies that cover up symptoms, they should just be given pain meds like Tylenol and just get through the cold. Or that's what I took from what I read.
