    You may need to be cruel to be kind, and force it down? A few doses of Ab she is going to feel so much better.

    If you go back to your doctor, you can request to have the antibiotics given as an injection. My Mum would always insist that the gp did this.

    I remember one injection of the antibiotics (bruises terribly though) making me feel soooo much better, then I happily took the rest if the antibiotics orally.

    If your bub is still having a bottle or ibreastfed you could try putting the syringe in her mouth at the same time as the teat of the bottle or your nipple. So hard to explain but they get distracted and don't that there is something else in their mouth at the same time.

    Poor thing! I know your pain though. DS have a fever and he's not taking meds as usual.
    He's 2.5 years now and it's a mission! Today I tried juice, water, made them into jellies, and he's just too smart didn't fall for any of that!
    In the end I had to lie to him to distract him while so he wouldn't struggle too much, I put 0.5ml of Panadol in my DDs little feeding spoon and I forced it into his mouth then left the spoon there to hold his mouth open so he can't spat it out and wait till he swallows, I have him little breaks too so he won't be too stressed and vomit everything out.
    But when he was 18 months we had to hold him down and squeeze his cheeks hard together and syringe bit by bit into his back cheeks. We sometimes blow into his face or tickle his throat to help him swallow.
    But now he just gaggles
    Hope your LO will feel better soon

    Thank you all soo much!

    So yesterday we tried juice (she looked at me like this isn't water mum) and no. We tried with/on/beside food.... No way!!! Eventually, we held her arms and squeezed her cheeks and got as much painstop as we could in....

    The penicillin, is hidden in her milk and that seems to be ok though!!!

    I didn't know I could request an injection, that would have been a lot easier!!!!

    Anyhow, I'm so grateful for all the help and suggestions, really you have made it a whole lot easier. I hope tonight she feels just a little better and sleeps in her own bed, I'm a little tired and and stuffing my face, but that's a whole other thread!!

    )))
