Children’s Liquid Medicine Dosing In the News

Posted December 1st, 2010 by Jill Addeo | No Comments »

As you know, we developed KidKupz to not only help children “take the ick out of sick”® and chase away the harsh taste of liquid medications,  but also to help parents ensure their child is always getting the proper dosage.  That is why KidKupz are made using standardized dosage cups with clearly marked measurements – no room for error and the cups can be used with ANY liquid medications.

Clearly, The Journal of the American Medical Association supports our concerns.  Here is the JAMA study, released yesterday.  Important reading for all parents and caregivers.

“ Evaluation of Consistency in Dosing Directions and Measuring Devices for Pediatric Nonprescription Liquid Medications

Also, here is the video from WABC and the esteemed Dr. Jay Adlersberg.

It Seems Mary Poppins Was Only Half-Right…

Posted October 5th, 2010 by Jill Addeo | No Comments »

When my mother and I first created KidKupz, our main objective was to make taking liquid medications easier for children while at the same time making the job easier on moms, dads and caregivers.  Having spoken with many pediatricians and health care professionals, we were also concerned with another of aspect of administering liquid medications.

Are BFF’s Becoming a Thing of the Past?

Posted June 30th, 2010 by Jill Addeo | No Comments »

Chances are if you ask other adults if they grew up having a best friend throughout the different stages of their childhood, the answer will be, “Yes.”  Fortunately, even for children who may not be jocks or cheerleaders or run with the popular crowd (whatever that is) it usually works out that most kids wind up finding a buddy that is just right for them.
