My baby boy turned 5 months over the weekend. If that wasn't enough to pull at my heartstrings, he decided to get a little extra attention by getting his first illness this weekend as well. The fever, congestion and coughing made it necessary for our first sick visit to the pediatrician. This then led to his first antibiotic. What a weekend for him! I am happy to report that he is doing much better now. Thankfully, he is a happy baby and hasn't stopped smiling through the whole thing.
Our first attempt at administering the medicine was quite the fiasco. I was just hoping I got half the dose in him since there was so much pink on his face and outfit. Ever have this happen to you?
My solution is quick and easy. Fortunately, he will take a bottle. So, I grabbed the top of one from our stash, squeezed the medicine from the dropper into that and haven't had any trouble making sure ALL of every dose gets into that little body.
