We’re supposed to give Monkey 3cc’s of this thick Pepto-like amoxicillin suspension twice a day for his ear infection. He doesn’t seem to hate the stuff, but he does this thing with his tongue that leads to a large portion of it ending up on his face and neck instead of in his tummy. So we end up with a partially-medicated circus baby.
We spent 20 minutes this morning giving Monkey his antibiotics through a dropper, half a cc at a time, and we still ended up with a good portion of it on him and us. How the hell is anybody supposed to get all that medicine down a little infant’s throat?
