I’m not a mother myself, but I can safely say that my mom is one of the smartest people I know. And after watching my sisters be stay-at-home moms to my nieces and nephews, I know for a fact that motherhood is in no way a task for the weak– their jobs are so much harder than mine.
That’s why I’m in no way surprised that this U.K. mom’s brilliant hack for giving her baby medicine is going viral on Facebook.
Helena Lee posted photos of the hack to her Facebook page, saying:
“FOR ALL MUMMIES…So for the last 24hours I’ve struggled to get Alfie to take Calpol, he has ended up covered in half of it where he spits it at me……Then i remembered seeing this trick,” she said in her caption. “Not one bit got wasted and no tears.”
The trick is simple– you take the syringe filled with the liquid medicine for your baby, and put it behind the cap of a bottle. Voila!
“I decided to share the trick as I have quite a few mummy friends on my Facebook and thought if I hadn’t seen it before then surely a few of them probably hadn’t either,” she told Huffington Post. “I decided I couldn’t be the only one trying to get a little one to take medicine.”
