A Spoonful of Sugar

Want to know how to get 2.5 ml of baby Tylenol into your sweet suffering infant’s mouth, and actually get her to swallow the stuff? A nurse clued me in – put the dropper in along the right side of her tongue, and push that liquid goodness (that your baby totally knows is nothing close to breast milk) out into her mouth. Then quick! Stick the pacifier in her mouth! If she has something to suck on it will help her swallow, and less of that liquid will run out of her mouth. Magic!
