9 Clever Ways to Help the Medicine Go Down

Warm the Medicine

Eyedrops are hard to give, especially when little ones are flinching and squirming. Try this tip: hold the bottle in your hands for two to three minutes to warm it to body temperature -- sometimes cool drops don't feel good! Next, lay your child down and aim for the inside corner (the fleshy part) of her eye. Even if her eyes are closed, some of the drop will run into the eye when she finally opens up. Of course, you may still need the help of another adult to hold her down.
