Just noticed: infant pain medicine....

In one of the nastier switch-ups I've seen in the last 10 years:

Equate (WalMart) brand infant acetaminophen used to come in a 1-oz bottle that cost half what Tylenol brand did. I've always used that kind.

Baby just got his shots, so I pulled out the new bottle and discovered they had re-done everything--new label, prettier colors, bottle just a hair wider than the old one. And, if I remember right, I paid the same amount I always have for it.

But I discovered today that the new, fancy, BIGGER bottle (just a little bigger, so it mostly looks the same) has HALF the amount of liquid in it! It's a .5 oz bottle, when it used to be a 1 oz bottle. For the same price.

Now that's rotten.
