A spoonful of control

Your little one may not have a choice in the medication they need to take. But they can still have some say in how it’s ingested.
If your tinybean’s balking at the idea of taking their medicine, empower them by offering some choices.

For instance, you can ask if they’d like to take their medicine:

* from the spoon or from a cup
* before breakfast or after
* in 2 sips or 3

Giving your kiddo some control over the when and how can help gain their cooperation and ensure those meds are finished.

As extra incentive, you also might let them put a big “X” on the calendar when they’ve finished their doses for the day. 🙂
