Health Tip: Infant Medication Advice For New Moms

(HealthDay News) -- A new mom has enough stress on her hands without worrying about giving medication to her newborn.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration suggests:

  • Get your doctor's advice before giving medication to your baby.
  • Store any medication out of your infant's reach.
  • Use a dosage device such as an oral syringe to ensure that baby gets the correct dose.
  • If you are nursing and take medication yourself, make sure it is ok to breast-feed.
