    When I administer meds to my dd who has been on some form of medication since 4 weeks old I do exactly what others said about squirting to the side of the mouth. I then blow gently on her face which apparently causes them to hold their breath slightly and then when you stop they swallow. This is what I was shown in hospital.

    I remember doing this for DD to get eye drops in. This is a very good tip and stops the windmill arms and legs!

    You can also get panadol suppositories for infants, we have used them with dd1 in the past. She was sick a lot but hated panadol, so I got adept at getting it in. I used to use the syringe, squirt it in and kind of squeeze her cheeks/corner of her mouth together. She often swallowed it that way, but later started gagging. That's when we used the suppositories, they worked for a while but she never liked having them popped in and it started causing problems with nappy change, she was worried we would try to slip one in. Understandably! But it was effective for a while & got us through a rough patch. Hth

    Blow on their face, it gives them a bit of a startle and they swallow.

    Haven't read all the replies, so sorry if I am repeating.

    My DD refuses panadol too and when I told the Pharmacist he asked me had I actually tried the infant Panadol myself (which I hadn't) as he said it is very bitter and that he highly recommended Dymadon paracetemol as it's sweeter to their palate.

    I personally use Panadol Suppositories when they're little as that way I know they have gotten the whole amount and it's relatively fuss free to administer (albeit a bit unnerving/icky at first ).

    I just wanted to drag this back up to thank those who suggested dymadon. DS practically drinks it off the syringe!

    We use neurofen because ds doesn't like the taste of Panadol.

    DD still hates Panadol but I can get it down her if I have to( if I run out of neurofen!!!) I have to trap one arm under my arm and squirt to the side then if you stroke their throat it kicks in their swallow reflex.
