Seriously, he shuts his mouth, spits, his hands are everywhere and he kicks your hand with the spoon, lmao. Is there like a technique to this?

like you would a dog, hide it in their food, wait until they spit it out then ram it in holding the jaws closed....

or in a shot glass via the eyeball....

You can get syringes (obviously ones with out needle) health visitor/doctors should be able to sort them for you. Use to give son calpol like that, he's great with it now. 4 month old daughter has to have it like that as well

You get a syringe with nurofen for infants. And not a proper needle either for the ill-educated
#30
You get the syringes from the pharmacist / chemist. Definitely the easiest way.

Calpol is paracetamol, not a sedative, cough medicine or magic cure all.
Nurofen is Ibuprofen, used for the same reasons.

my little boy love's medicine any kind it does'nt matter, the other day my little girl was'nt feeling well so i gave her calpol, my little boy came running over with a slight limp i said " whats wrong?" he said "my leg herts" i knew he was just saying it for some calpol too, so i gave him a tiny bit, he said " i want more" i said" thats enough it's only your leg" he said " but my other leg herts now!" lmao :D

For our litle 'uns, we used just the teat off a feeding bottle. Get 'em sucking and pour the medicine into the back of the teat. Worked a treat.

We found the best one was the orange syringe you get free in the kids nurofen, good luck!

I breastfeed though, so this would mean me dipping my boobs in the calpol X)

One of the syringe things are the best as people have said, we don't have any trouble giving our two tear old any medicine, he lives it, even when we have to give him ten puffs of his inhaler
#38
the syringe works best-BUT- if your little one is a birrov a terror, then bub will surely spit it out- the best way i find, for a stubborn bub, is to put one finger between his teeth slighly overlapping the tongue to ensure mouth stays open and there's a gap there to stick the syringe in, and then take the syring down the side of the mouth and shoot the medicine in (in small outbursts, mind) - this way, bub can't stop the medicine going down and has to swallow as he's unable to close the entryway to his throat/mouth as your finger is in there..


hope that makes sense(!)
#39
Do you give your toddler infacol for colic? My sister gives it to my nephew before eating and when he had a cold and was teething badly and needed to give him calpol she used the dropper from the infacol bottle which worked really well.
I hope your little boy gets better soon.

Use a syringe (as mentioned many times already), or
Mix the liquid Calpol in some juice & serve as a normal drink.

For future, when your child is 6 years old or more, use these:
