Unfortunately for this situation he doesn't use a dummy, so I can't use one of those dummy things.
Gees, you think they'd make giving antibiotics a little easier on us Mums! I think I'd even give a suppository a go rather than go through this battle three times a day

Not sure what ABs you are using but we usually ended up with the amoxycillin one which really tastes quite nice. You can also get different flavours, we had most success with the 'fruit' flavour one
HTH and hope your DS gets better soon

I slide my finger in DD's mouth at the side of her teeth and squirt the meds at the back of her throat.
plug the nose with your fingers and when they open up their mouth to breathe - squirt it in.

have you tasted the medicine?
is it all medicine or just this?
if it is just this medicine and it tastes foul, go back to the doctor and get a different script.
when my son was 1 in hospital they gave him this awful tasting antibiotics. i forced it down him (despite wearing most of it) and for the next 7 years he refused all medicine of any kind, even panadol. i even tried to hide it in chocolate ice-cream without him knowing but he would always associate any kind of medicine taste with that initial experience.
thankfully now he has panadol capsules but there were many, many nights with very, very high temperatures that i cursed that bloody doctor!!
