Q: I have a problem I'd like to know how others solve. We have three kids and another on the way, and at the moment we are all very sick. The doctors have us "piggy-backing" the kids on ibuprofen (Motrin) every six hours and acetaminophen (Tylenol) every four. What systems or products do other parents use to keep track of who had what and especially when it's not always possible for one parent to be in charge of all dosages (especially when the parent is sick and exhausted too and likely to become confused)? Written in desperation at 2.00am by said sick, exhausted, pregnant, and mentally drained mom.

Editor: My first thought was, is there an app for that? I'm not sure. Parents, many of you have likely faced this problem - thoughts and suggestions for Cheryl (whose family is hopefully on the mend now)?
