    Default giving antibiotics

    Im trying to give my three month old breast fed baby antibiotics for his infected eczema. Im using a syringe but it comes out faster than it goes in. He has now decided he doesnt like bottles so I cant even mix it with milk.

    Any ideas?

    Default Re: giving antibiotics

    Try a dropper instead of a syringe, you have more control and can give little bits at a time. Also try getting bub to suck on your finger and put dropper in mouth at same time, you may have to wait til they are hungry.

    I used to stick the syringe in the corner of bubs mouth while they were feeding an attached to the nipple, then I'd trickle feed it in as bub fed.
