Daughter who won't take medicine
So my husband's been sick for a couple weeks now. On Tuesday he went to the doctor, and he has Strep Throat. I took Jerom to the Dr. Tuesday afternoon because he'd been fussy and having a runny nose. Turns out he has strep too. While at the Dr. they went ahead and tested Emarose and Me. Yep, the whole family is sick with strep throat! Jerom will take his medicine nicely, but Emarose our 4 year old wouldn't take it. We tried fighting her to force it down, but she put up such a fuss that none stayed down. Called Dr. office, and they said try mixing it with Chocolate syrup. So we tried that...still she wouldn't take it. I tried mixing it with Chocolate syrup and a little milk but still no luck. Finally we've been able to get her to drink the medicine mixed with chocolate syrup by having her drink it with a straw. It still takes about 10 min. though but at least she has taken her medicine yesterday and today. She gets something sweet afterwords to help get rid of the medicine taste and she gets to put a sticker on a chart. If she takes her medicine (mixed with Chocolate) 2x/day for 10 days then we will take her to get some wall stickers to decorate her room. Anyone else have a child who won't take medicine? What do you do?
