    depending on the volume, you could just give it via a teat mixed with a little bit of milk prior to his feed to ensure he gets it all. Or you can squirt it into his mouth via syringe with a feed too.

    Use ypur fingers to squeeze open his mouth (or if you're not unco like me, slip the syringe in there while he's drinking his bottle) and squirt small amounts at a time towards the back of his mouth. Then gently rub his throat as it helps to get them to swallow.

    My DS2 is 4 now and was on reflux meds and constant antibiotics for tonsillitis and he hates medicine... I am well practiced in getting him to take meds when he doesnt want to.

    Get yourself a nurofen type syringe. Pop the granules in the syringe and draw up some warm water, and then block the end with your finger then shake. Then administer as above, like you would a liquid medication.
