From Antares (an “Austin hackin’ mama”):
I knew the college drinking days would come in handy for something someday. Remember how if you took a shot of tequila and made sure to drink something else *before* you swallowed again it wouldn’t taste so nasty? I use the same trick with yucky medicines like cough syrup. I have a cup of juice with a straw *right there* so my Zoe can quickly suck some juice down before that Robitussin taste hits her throat. It has reduced the “no, not medicine!” incidents quite drastically. Just wanted to share.
Just keep in mind that cold and cough medicine is under serious scrutiny. Take care when giving it to your kids.
