A Spoonful Of Medicine ??

Why has my daughter got a syringe sitting on the shelf in her house – panic thoughts went through my mind!

However it was nothing to worry about, and I have become a convert to using syringes with young children.

It is a great way to get an exact amount of medicine into a toddler. Gone are the days when a vigorously shaking head would spill half the medicine on the spoon onto the floor. I have now added a couple of these syringes to our standard medical kit.

In fact – if you buy a bottle of children’s medicine now, you will find it comes with a syringe and special plastic stopper through which  the syringe is inserted.

You can also buy 5ml and 2.5ml syringes from a chemist for use when you have been prescribed a medicine which comes in a normal bottle.
