It SUCKS when they fight it. I just gave my almost 3-yo stepson his Amoxicillin and he took it like a champ, thank goodness. Does bribery work? Piece of candy if she takes it like a big girl? Otherwise, if it has to be done, the hold 'em down and blow in their face method works... but it's no fun.

i bought her favorite frozen fruits today. I put some in a bowl and said she could eat them after she took her meds. And if she waited too long, they'd melt and she wouldn't get any



She took the meds.



Frozen fruit is kind of her weakness

Both are vile to me. I think drug companies need to learn what grapes actually taste like

That is an idea, but she never finishes anything. I would never be able to be sure she got the full dose
