    Oh awesome lol freaked out for a second haha. We were told to reduce sun exposure while he's on the antibiotics because it can cause a sensitivity (I've never heard of that before lol)

    I can't remember exactly how it works but I remember being told to syringe it right down the back corner - so even if their teeth are clenched if you can get it into the side of their mouths aim it down the back like towards the molars - it's harder for them to spit it out from back there. You've maybe tried already.

    May not work though for you if you're already at the stage if pinning DS down (kids have good memories).
    I didn't even think to attempt something like that because he was absolutely fine taking antibiotics before. I can try n see if he will fall for it tonight but yeah I don't think he will forget the experience for awhile yet lol.

    This sometimes work too or if I give the syringe to Dd. I don't really think that's ideal though because I don't want her thinking it's OK to give herself medicine. Sometimes it's just easier.

    This used to work for DD too.
    I always found a one of those plastic syringes easier then a spoon, and just squeezing bit by bit making it harder to spit out, if you get it into the back part of the mouth, and to the side.

    Thanks to everyone who replied 😀 been talking to DS about how he is going to have his medicine shortly and he doesn't seem to be listening haha. I've let him have a turn with the syringe. Will be aiming to get it as far down to the side I can and going slowly. Fingers crossed.

    My ds is ok with meds dissolved in juice at moment, I only do just before he takes them and as stomachs are acidic I think it shouldn't do the drug much harm....
