As I mentioned earlier this week, Leo’s been on probiotics to help with digestive issues/colic. Unfortunately, he really doesn’t seem to like the taste of the probiotics and he fights drinking them every morning (we mix in 1/4t. to 1oz. of pumped breastmilk). Wednesday it took about 30-45 minutes to get him to drink the ounce. And this morning he would only take 3 swallows. Stubborn!
So after an hour and still no probiotics down the gullet, we took measures into our own hands. Using a tiny 1mL dropper, we squirted the milk into his mouth. Leo drank this just fine – no spitting it back up!
Do you know how many millilters there are in 1 ounce? Thirty.
That’s a lot of dropperfulls to squirt in a little buddy’s mouth.
We need a bigger dropper, because Leo has definitely decided he’s CONbiotic about PRObiotics!
(But who could be mad at that little face??)
