Handling Your Baby's Health

Handling Your Baby's Health

Always give a baby pediatric medicine only, and always measure it with a pediatric measuring device.

If you’re having trouble getting baby to swallow the medicine, you can:

  1. Mix baby medicine with a small amount of milk in their bottle.
  2. Use a medicine syringe. Let them suck on it, or squirt a little medicine in their mouth at a time and let them swallow before the next squirt.
  3. Roll the syringe over their tongue to get them to swallow the medicine.
