Re: HELP! I have to give my three year old a suppository!

Have him lay either on his side, or with his knees tucked under him bootie in the air. The latter is how we did it when we had to give my oldest son enemas for severe constipation when he was 3. It was not pleasant but we all survived and suppositories aren't as bad as enemas. You might put a towel under him just in case and make sure it is in far enough or it might just pop right back out.
