Re: How do you give Prevacid to your LO?

i ground it up in the bottom of a shot glass and gave it to her dry. then a bottle right then to make sure it all went down her throat.

I actually just kind of broke it into a few pieces and held the chunks inside her cheek until the dissolved. She ended up with a g-tube and we were told it was fine to dissolve it in water for that purpose.

It can take up to 2 weeks for full effects to kick in, though some see it sooner. If there is anything that needs healing, it can take longer.
