Discussions that mention septra

Infant Care (up to 18 months old) board


Are you using a medicine dropper or an oral syringe. DS was on this and didn't seem to mind the taste -- I thought it dreadful though. But with all his medicines I load up oral syringes and squirt the medicine into the pouch of his cheek. The dietician and doctors warned us NOT to mix any medicine with formula 'cuz then he'd associate the taste with the medicine and either not eat, nor would he get the correct amount of medication.

DS got his twice a day -- early morning and late at night. When he was either sleepy or sleeping, so I'd quick squirt it in while he was out of it and didn't seem to mind. The only thing we ever had a problem with was septra and non-flavored milk of mag -- he'd shoot it out like a fountain

Some pharmacies used to offer flavorings. Maybe you could ask yours to do so.
