ok so i need advice from the moms!
my lil boy is sick and i can never get him to take his medicine.
like he just wont swallow it.
he will spit it right bak out!
it drives me crazy cause its suppose to help him get better and its never going to work if he spits it out!
the other thing i need help with is wit the bottle.
he is about to be two and he is still on the bottle.
ok so his bottle is more like a comfort item so he takes its only to go to sleep.
if i dnt give him his milk he just wont go to sleep!
i’ve tried before but it still hasnt happened.
i dnt want to try just now cause he’s sick and i feel bad just taking it away from him.
ill try again once he’s feeling better.
but i need ideas.
im also expecting and havent been feeling so good and if i dnt give him his bottle i would just never get any sleep!
please give me ideas wit the medicine and bottle issues!October 22, 2007 at 9:16 am #19171mommy6

Well as far as the bottle goes find something else to comfort him at night and he wont need his bottle anymore..being sick if its liquid try putting it in a cup w something to drink.thats how we had to do w my daughter.November 12, 2007 at 5:24 pm #19522kez_mummy_2_skye
my daughter is nearly 3 and still has her bottle at night and she is the same if she doesnt have bottle and dummy she wont go to sleep so i figure if its what keeps them secure then let it be, no-one else see’s what goes on at night time. It during the day you worry about it.
