Cherrybrook Kitchen

I am so excited! Today I received in the mail 3 coupons for free Cherrybrook Kitchen products. Cherrybrook Kitchen is an allergy friendly and also low protein food company. They sell cookies, brownies, baking mixes, frostings, and they have a gluten-free line as well. They are sold on-line, but also at health food stores, Target, and locally for us, Jewel-Osco/Albertson's.

They have a rewards program called "CBK Rewards" where you send in the bottoms of the boxes with the UPC code for cool stuff.

A Cup-a-cake cupcake holder is 4 box bottoms
A free coupon is 8 box bottoms
An iPod Nano (8GB) is 125 box bottoms
There are more, this is just a sampling.

We really love the mixes. When Talli couldn't have wheat we would use the wheat-free mixes and everyone in the family ate them.

Needless IV lines & Oral Med Syringes

Multiple brands of needleless IV systems can accomidate oral med syringes into their hubs. With increasing use of needleless IV lines there is risk of mistakes in using oral med syringes in those lines. Here is an older article listing the problem:

Baxa Corp has several new oral med syringes that are incompatable with needleless IV lines. They also have syringes that are orange and purple to differentiate them from IV syringes.

Be aware in a hospital setting that oral med syringes (non-sterile) are not used in your child's IV line. You are their biggest advocate.
