Hi all, my 19 month old had outpatient surgery this morning and is home and seems to be in little pain: he has been playing quite normally.
I need to give him codeine every 6 hours for the first two days which means having to wake him just to give him his syrup. I feel bad about waking him up from a deep sleep because he's healing and will cry and have a hard time falling back to sleep again (if I can get him to take the syrup while he's angry at being woken up). On the other hand, I'm worried that if I wait until he wakes up on his own, he'll be in pain because the last dose has worn off.
I'd appreciate your experience, please. Many thanks!
