Don’t Use a Spoon for Your Child’s Medications! Here's Why! by Donna John
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) wants parents to keep the spoons for their cereal – not their child’s medication. They are urging parents to use only metric measurements on prescriptions, medication labels and dosing cups to help ensure kids receive the correct dose. Medication should not be measured in teaspoons or tablespoons, especially not spoons taken from a kitchen drawer.
“Spoons come in many different sizes and are not precise enough to measure a child’s medication,” said Dr. Ian Paul, lead author of the policy statement.
