It’s been almost a year since I wrote about giving a baby medicine and boy, oh boy have things changed.
No longer can we just give our baby a syringe and wait for the right moment to squeeze it. Nor can we expect him to suck out the medicine. Nope, not anymore. Once your baby realizes that by smashing the syringe’s plunger on a table, the floor, couch or chair it’s all over. They’ll actually get a big laugh out of it! You’ll just be pissed because you get to clean up the mess.
I have to credit my wife for figuring this one out. Now we put about two ounces of water in a baby bottle with the medicine dissolved, and/or mixed in it. Then we tell him its “juice”. Damn if he doesn’t take it. And he loves it!
He’s such a good boy!
Give it a try, hope it works for you.
