Mercedes got pretty sick last night and she has a fever. It isn't dangerous or anything, but she is terribly miserable and she is such a stinker about medicine! I try to give her Tylenol and as soon as it reaches the back of her throat it gags her and she throws up EVERYTHING that is in her stomach. It turns out to be counter-productive, since now she is hungry AND she still has a fever. Any advice? My other kids weren't too bad about medicine so I don't know what to do. I've tried doing it quickly to get it over with and slowly pouring it down her throat. She will NOT take a bottle, no matter what, and I haven't started her on solids yet, so I can't mix it in with anything. I'm at a loss. Whoever said being a mom was easy. You'd think with 3 that I would have a few tricks for things like Tylenol, but no. Once again, Macie proves to be my most high maintenance child. It's good we love her so much!
