Pic shows: The boy drinking the medicine thinking it’s Pepsi. These hilarious snaps shows an ingenious mother tricking her son into drinking medicine by hiding it behind a can of Pepsi. The pictures posted by the boy???s aunt have been trending on social media sites in China with nearly 150,000 likes and 37,000 shares, but also on popular forum Reddit, where it has made the front page multiple times. ???Hamama???, the teenage aunt who shared the snaps, captioned the pictures: “My sister-in-law feeding my nephew medicine. I???m dying of laughter.” It is unclear where exactly the toddler???s Chinese family lives, but his mum is being dubbed a “genius” for the way she ensures that her son receives his medicine, which helps to boost the young boy???s immune system. Children, even toddlers, can be very smart and recognise bottles of medicine, which makes it very difficult for mums to feed it to them. That is why the mother came up with the clever idea of disguising it as a bottle of his favorite soft drink – Pepsi. Holding the tiny vial of medicine behind the Pepsi can, she offered the boy the straw and he happily drank out of it thinking it was the delicious cola. Hamama???s post has been flooded with more than 6,000 comments. But she is not the only mum to fool their kids into drinking medicine. Another image being carried by local media shows a mum having concealed the medicine vial in a small yogurt container, with the parent achieving the same hilarious outcome. (ends)
