ALL parents know it’s a struggle getting kids to take medicine, especially if they’re already throwing a tantrum as they feel unwell.
But one mum, called Shannon Williams, may have found the simplest answer – and it’s a dummy.

Shannon shared a clip to TikTok demonstrating how it works, as she pops open the lid, and adds a syringe full of medicine before snapping it shut.
The mum then films herself giving it to her daughter – who gladly sucks on it – taking in the medicine at the same time.
She dubbed it the ‘best thing ever’, adding it only cost her 50p from the high-street store.
Shannon shared her ‘life hack’ online, which has gone down a storm with fellow parents
One mum raved: “I love that product!! It’s amazing.”
Another commented: “This is so smart.”

A third wrote: “Why didn’t I know this after having my second.
“You really do learn things everyday.”
While this mum said: “Omg why have I only just learned this. Game changer.”
Thousands of parents watched the clip and branded her tip a game changer
