Grand Rapids, Mich. (WOTV) - Cold and flu season is here and it's so easy for your baby to catch a bug. If your baby does need to take a dose of medicine I've got a simple trick to make things a little bit easier. I ran into this problem in the Spring when my son got his first chest infection. We needed to give him something to break his fever but every time I put the dropper to his mouth he would do one of three things:
1. Turn his head and close his lips as tight as possible
2. Take the medicine but dribble it all back out down his shirt leaving me wondering "how much did he get?"
3. Take the medicine, gag and puke.
After expressing my frustration with this process someone I work with (thank you Linda!), passed along this helpful tip.
Measure out the medicine in the amount prescribed by your doctor using the provided dropper, and squeeze it into the nipple of a bottle. (see video above) Your child will simply just suck the medicine out. Amazing!
