    my 4 year old son just was prescribed 5ml of prednisolone oral solution which,he has to take twice daily. ( every 12 hours)

    how do i get him to take his full recommened dose?
    - without spitting it out And/Or
    - without it getting everywhere else when he pushes it
    away last minute?

    How am i supose to know, how much he actually swallowed
    before he either spit it out Or pushes it away last minute an
    it squirts all over?

    (the medication instructions paper says, Not to give any dosage
    back to back. and to wait until the next recommened time of dosage.)

    anyone know of any solutions to help, please speak up!
