Administer medication to a baby is not easy especially when the child is already big enough. In this case, it moves more. Suppositories, tablets or liquid serums, you have to make him swallow a methodical manner and without panic. The first thing to do is ensure that your little darling will feel safe and confident with you.
If the medication prescribed by your doctor is a liquid such as syrup, the best method of administration is using a plastic pipette or a syringe. Thus, it will be easier. In addition, you can be sure he took the prescribed dose without any overflow.
For this latter reason that we avoid having to use a spoon. Otherwise, use the bottle pulled strings specially designed for that. In addition, rest assured that your baby’s head is properly raised. If it drops, lie your baby and gently pinch his cheeks, dropping the drops.
For tablets with a bitter taste, make him suck an ice cube to numb the taste. Or, give him a small amount of hazelnut paste before taking if it is already big enough. However, do not worry too much, these tablets for children are often sweet and even perfumed. And finally, for suppositories, soak them for a few minutes in a glass of ice water to harden them, without removing the packaging.
