Medicine-Time Tips for Liquid Medicine
Use the Right Tool
Dosing syringes tend to work best since you can aim the medicine away from the tongue and dispense it quickly. Some children like dose cups as they are easier to drink from and easier to hold. Find what works best for your child and go with it.
Numb the Tongue
Taste buds do not work as well when they are cold. Try having your child suck on an ice cube or ice pop before taking medicine.
Practice Makes Perfect
Let your child give pretend medicine to a doll or stuffed animal and explain why it is important. This experience should make taking real medicine a lot easier.
Reward and Praise
Stickers, special treats, or an extra bedtime story are just a few of the little things you can do.
Manage your family’s health in the palm of your hand
