    My DD is like that, she has to have hers mixed in with strawberry milk. Just got to make sure she drinks it all!

    That tip was recommended to me by the doctor.

    I've mixed it into milk, juice, yoghurt, custard but always just used a little milk/juice/custard etc so I could be sure she finished it all

    My youngest NEVER takes medicine and vomits it/spits it out the minute she detects it. I've tried milk, juice and once those little squeeze yoghurts. They worked well!
