Bottle nipple as medicine dispenser
Cathy came up with an ingenious medication dosage hack:
So they sell those nifty baby medication pacifiers where you crack the thing opened, put in the medicine, and in somebody’s dream world, the baby peacefully sucks the medicine down no problem. Actually, I shouldn’t harsh on it so much. My 10-month-old actually fell for it a couple of times before she started rejecting it outright. The pacifier did not feel like her bottle nipple (we use the Nuk), so she got wise, even from a dead sleep, and I was up the creek.
Last night in desperation I took one of her Nuk nipples and turned it over. I poured in the medicine, put my finger over the hole, and tramped back to the bedroom. My kid sucked it up without waking up and (I think) was none the wiser.
