Anyone have any advice on giving liquid meds to their child? My son is on antibiotics and anti-yeast treatment from his DAN! that require us to give him 3 teaspoons a day of the meds. It is absolute hell, including having to pin him down and have it spit out at us!!! And it doesnt actually taste bad, but I think he's got a mental block about it. It's becoming a severly traumatic situation for 3 times a day. The other problem is that with the yeast treatment he can't have sugar so I can't bribe him with a cookie or hide it in chocolate sauce or ice cream. I've tried bribing him with videos (his favorite) and hiding in sugar-free applesauce and those options do not work. He's got amazing detection abilities. So we're left with the human straight-jacket approach and I'm running out of patience and strength.... HELP please!!!
