How Do I Get My Toddler to Take Medicine?

When my two year old daughter was sick with an ear infection, her doctor prescribed oral medication that she hated the taste of and gave me a real hard time when getting her to take it. So, I measured her medicine to the dosage she needed and froze it in the freezer. I scooped it out on a spoon and she took it with no problem.

This is a really interesting idea. Did you check with the pharmacist to be sure it was ok to freeze the medication? Wish I'd thought of this with my kids, I'll have to remember it for my grandkids.

Some medications have temperature limitations, usually not below freezing (32F) and not over about 78F. They may not be printed on the bottles but they are established for safety and effectiveness of the medications.
