I have two kids with ear infections, which mean two kids on antibiotics.  I looked at the bottles and thought "big bottle, big kid's medicine; little bottle, little kid's medicine."  And so, I gave Nolan Ethan's medicine.  The problem: Nolan is allergic to amoxicillin.  Now I am sitting here with the Benadryl and a syringe waiting and watching.  Trudy, please come take care of my kids before I manage to kill them.

I found out over the xmas break that after 6 years of life, Brylee is also allergic to amox and also love the benedryl treatment. Hers lasted about 5 days total. What about Nolan

Nolan's was back at 9 months old, so I don't remember. I just remember how red he was and miserable. Luckily, with the small Ethan size dose this time, Nolan was fine.
