    Ladies just buy some syringes (no needles obviously) from the chemist in whatever size you need...they come in 1, 3, 5, 10 and 20ml sizes and are inexpensive. They are kept behind the counter, just ask. The numbers rub off after a while but I just replace...or even better...ask a nurse friend to bring you some ☺

    They don't fit the flat nuerofen end that's why we're asking about the attachment. You can pour but it's really hard.

    Not a mistake. She's very tall for her age too, over a full head taller than other kids in her class. Unfortunately she is still 5 so she just gags on tablets, never been able to get her to swallow one.

    I've raised her rate of growth several times with medical professionals but they say it's just genetics (I'm not exactly small). Oddly enough though my second daughter, who I'm raising exactly the same, is normal size.

    Even if you take the cap for the dispenser off the bottle the 10ml syringes don't go into the bottle and if the neck is wide enough they can't reach down once it gets lower than half. The point is why have a dispenser for easy dosing if it's not big enough to take the required dose.

    They are in the medical aids section.
    Went to 3 chemists yesterday and none had them. Have not given up yet though. I've found them online so will buy that way if I have to but that won't help me at the moment.

    Fair enough. We just use syringes to administer liquid medicine at work. .if the syringe won't fit or the bottle too empty we pour the approx amount into a medicine cup or bottle lid and suck up. Obviously we only use the syringe for a single use in this circumstance ☺. At home I use lots of times...

    They come with a cap to put on the bottle. You can then put it upside down to syringe it.

    Eta. I just realized the ones behind the counter might not. Sorry!
