My DS is 11 months old and has been prescribed antibiotics for a bacterial infection as a result of a bad cold.
I have to give him 2.5mls 3 times per day. He absolutely hates it and resists me giving it to him. I have tried spoons, little cups and syringes. I've had to resort to wrapping him to squirt it into his mouth but now he has started spitting it out. It's really traumatic for both of us!
I have also tried filling the syringe with sugar water and letting him play with it so he gets used to it and likes it, but he just throws it.
The pharmacist said I can mix it with yoghurt or milk, but he is refusing to be spoon fed and is also fussy on his bottles so there is no guarantee that he'll get the whole does if I give it to him this way (I think he'd taste it anyway and then we'd have issues with bottles!).
Any tips on how to get him to take his medicine?
