Medication tip and KASAD8: Sunset

We've had daycare colds and chest infections doing the rounds here, which has involved antibiotics for all of us. I've spoken about avoiding accidental medication overdoses for baby before, but it's not just baby's medication that you need to keep track of. My brain is like a sieve at the best of times, let alone when I'm sleep deprived and sick, too. Writing when I need to take each tablet on the pack is the easiest way for me to keep track of if I have or haven't taken a dose. Simple and easily implemented is exactly what I need when I'm sick.
