Parenting Tips

Humor Even for Vomiting Illnesses

Children can be miserable with many common illnesses, but viral stomach flu can be particularly miserable for both the child (who feels so poorly) and the parent (who must clean up another episode of vomiting or diarrhea). Since vomiting is a given of childhood, try to add humor to it. Pick out a bucket or other similar container. Then, give it a name (e.g., the purple puke bucket) that children will find funny and will brighten their spirits. Use the bucket solely for this essential and honorable task, and you will know what it means when your child yells for it!

PAGS News

PAGS is recommending that you purchase Advil or Motrin brand ibuprofen for your infant and avoid purchasing generic brands.  Infant ibuprofen destined to be sold at several national retailers might contain a higher concentration of ibuprofen, leading to potential risks in infants.
