Quite frankly, I wouldn't care about him getting mad, if I could get him to swallow the stuff You gotta choose your battles, and him not getting mad pales in comparison to him taking his meds.When I've had to force an unwilling child to take a necessary medicine (which I hate to do, but y'know, if they have to take it they have to take it) a quick puff of air in their face causes a reflexive swallow. So if you can get it in his mouth and then blow a little puff of air in his face, he'll swallow it and he may be so surprised that he forgets to be mad. Not likely, but it could happen! Right?
I'll try to remember that trick for next time, anyway, thanks!
(And I'll keep hoping his insane good health keeps holding until we can actually reason with him )
