  • Mix it in a small amount of juice or kool aid (which I normally wouldn't give a baby, but this is an exception) and put it in their bottle. I've also put it in ice cream, jello, you name it in desperation!!
    Good Luck!

  • You can also tricklet down the inside of their cheek. If you do it a little at a time there won't be e.nough for them to spit

  • Also, if it's just tylenol, you can get suppositories to use instead of the liquid!

  • If you use bottles, you can try adding it to a bit of water.
    Dip the pacifier in the medicine and have them suck it off?

    I also like Answer #2.
