Mix medicine into Jell-O Smoothie Snacks to get it down the hatch
Steve's get-the-medicine-in-the-toddler hack:
My 18 month-old had an ear infection and like most toddlers she was prescribed amoxicillin. She has had ear infections when she was younger and we would either give her the medication via syringe or add a little bit to each spoonful of food we fed her. Now that she's a toddler getting her to take her medicine has been a horrific chore.
Sneaking it into her food has limited success since she wants to feed herself and notices the "pink stuff" in her food either by sight or by taste. We were resigned to the fact that we had another week of wrangling our toddler until my wife found Jell-O Smoothie Snacks, Strawberry Banana flavor.
Does anyone know if mixing antibiotics into food changes the potency of the medicine?
