I think you're doing everything you can. Does he take a dummy?
I've been giving my dd meds many times a day since birth. . And I think it's so hard! What I do is lay dd on the bed or floor. . lean over her so her legs are in between my legs. .. She usually starts crying but that is my cue to squirt it in with her mouth open! Then shove a dummy in so she can't spit it out. It sounds crazy but it's only 10 seconds of unpleasantness! The dummy plus blowing in the face as pp said works a treat.
You can though try mixing it with the milk/bottle and maybe 20mls of milk if you think he'd drink it. You could try?

You don't need a prescription for suppositories here, I have bought them off the shelf at the chemist.

Supps are only for 5-12 years from memory .

Our DS has never tolerated Baby panodol and even if you force some down with a syringe he vomits it up.
He will however take Dymadon and nurofen which are orange flavoured.

We used suppositories with our ds1 during his first year.

My DS always vomited up panadol, same as a pp he will take dymadon or nurofen though.

Just had a look at our neurofen and it's strawberry. I'll check if there's orange in any brand since everyone seems to be recommending that. There isn't dymoden here I don't think. I asked the GP about suppositories and he said I should be able to get them so I'm thinking they might be the way to go.

Grabbed some orange neurofen and suppositories. Tried the neurofen tonight and he liked it, a much calmer process! Annoying that I now have two bottles of strawberry flavored (Calpol and neurofen)! The Calpol only comes in strawberry so will probably have to use suppositories if I want to use paracetomal.
Are the Panadol suppositories expensive? It was £20 for 10 here!! So I may have MIL grab some for me before she arrives.

I think panadol suppositories can be used from 6 months. Also, if you're planning to stock up a couple of bottles, maybe ask your MIL to check the use-by date on them as from memory they may not have a very long shelf life.
I think I'm going to have to try the Orange flavoured dymadon too, based on all the advise here!

Good point on the orange dymadon though, maybe I should have her grab that as well. Would probably be nice to not have to stick something up his bum every time he needs paracetomal!
