How do I measure my child´s medicine?

Measuring Medication

When measuring liquid medication for your child, be sure to use an oral dropper, a cylindrical dosing spoon, or a plastic medicine cup in order to ensure he/she is receiving an accurate dosage. Using a household utensil is highly inaccurate, as the size of spoons vary. Tablespoons can hold as little as 2.5 ml or as much as 10 ml.
