Yikes! That's sad. A totally preventable death of a child... horrible.
I rarely give my children medication, and when the decision was made to medicate my oldest son, I felt terrible. I really did. I was actually embarresed by it for a while because I have always been so anti-medication. But, now I really feel we did what was best for everyone in the family.
Is there a spell check on this forum??
There was a baby a few years ago that died in the care of a daycare provider. It turned out that the daycare provider was putting Benedryl in the bottle. The baby got an overdose. How sad is that? It can be so, so dangerous to give something like this. I remember in the article, the mom said that on weekends her baby was not a good napper, but the daycare provider had said that the baby always napped well at her house, for most of the afternoon.

I really don't have issues for using meds when miranda is sick or in pain, but using it strickly because I want her to sleep, that's like Abuse. Tylenol is bad for you, I know this, and even more so if you have to switch drugs because your child has grown IMMUNE to it. That's way too much use.
I have Asthma and HORRIBLE allergies, which in turn make my asthma worse, so I'm on allergy meds everyday. I grow Immune to them and have to switch brands every couple of months. Glad I haven't gotten Immune to my Albuterol. lol
I wonder what is wrong with people.
