Try using a bowl and spoon

My baby refuses to swallow her medication and she screams and fights and spit it all out. We tried all the tricks, blowing in her face, holding her cheek open, etc.

We tried putting the medicine in a baby food jar and feeding her the medicine from a spoon and it worked! She took the whole dose of medicine happily with no crying or fighting and she swallowed every drop.

    That's funny that she took it from the baby food jar. Ours haven't had too much medicine so this really hasn't been an issue for us. I do know when we have cod liver oil the children like to take a drink of something else after it.
