How to Give Your Child Liquid Medicines

We want to share with you some tips for giving medicine to your babies or toddlers.

  1. Give it to them before you feed them.
  2. Mesure the dose with a spoon or syringe that you got with the medicine.
  3. Give it in small amounts.
  4. Give a popsicle, the numb sensation helps the medicine go down.
  5. Don’t mix medicine with food or drinks.
  6. double check the dose and amount and use a diary to keep track of the medicines you are giving.
  7. Put it in their cheek pouch, rather than the back of their throat.
