We have talked before that a standard flatware spoon from the cutlery drawer should never be used to administer medicine. According to this report from the Pediatrics Journal not picking the right spoon led to around 40% chance of error in dosage.
The better choice is a medicine dispensing spoon. This Medicine Spoon By Apex Healthcare is easy to fill accurately while upright. The dosage is up to 2 Tsp and as little as 1 ml. The design makes it easy for feeding children or the elderly without spillage. A 3 pack is a good idea.
