Tuesday Tips - Measuring medicine cups

Here is a tip that I use when my kids are on medicines. I really don't like those plastic cups or little syringes that come with children's Tylenol or Motrin or antibiotics. Why? I might prove my craziness here but they gross me out - you can't really clean them well, they are plastic, you can't tell them apart if you have more than one child taking a medicine - they are little germ infested cups.

So, my tip - purchase a mini glass measuring cup like this one on the right.

I have one in red for my daughter and one in blue for my son. I can keep them separate, run them through the dishwasher and they are glass. Love them!

You can find these at Walmart, Bed Bath & Beyond or kitchen supply stores.
