How do you get your toddler to take medicine. My tip...

As a parent we hate to see our kids sick and we get frustrated when they refuse to take medicine instructed by the doctor. Madison will (now) take her medicine if it's in the back of her throat, past her taste buds. Jax normally takes medicine pretty well, but these last few times he has become sick he refuses. He spits it out at me and I get frustrated. Maybe, it's just the terrible twos? lol

I needed advice and turned to this. It didn't help me, but it still has great advice and might help you.

This is what we found works for us.....
Yes... a STRAW!

I never knew a straw could be so magical :)

 Jax is still too young to be given a cup of medicine to drink by himself and he is at the age where he loves drinking out of a straw, so this is perfect!

What works for you?


  1. My son will take his meds when he gets a syringe of juice first then the measured syringe of medicine next! It's worked the last few rounds of antibiotics he's needed!

  2. I'm going to try that! Thanks :)
