    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Anyone have suggestions on how to get a 3 year old to take ibuprofen? Are there any products out there that aren't liquid?

    I told my DD it was "big girl medicine" and would make her feel better.

    My DS usually doesn't have any problem taking medicine. However, the last time he was sick he had to take a really nasty tasting medicine and started refusing to take it. I mixed a little juice with it in the medicine cup and stirred it around. He didn't even know it was medicine (from the taste). If it's just the site of the medicine, I'm not sure how to get her to take it.

    They do make chewable tylenol and ibuprofen. My DD takes the liquid better than the chewables though.
