  • my son has never had a problem taking medicine but i would talk to your doctor about this one. i think mixing it with water would be fine, i dont see any harm and i have dont it a few times.

  • I saw a bottle, with a medicine dispenser inside it. So I think you squeeze it as she drinks to make sure she gets it all. So as long as the Dr. Okays the mix, I know there is a delivery system.

  • If you have a Dropper, try giving it to her near her cheeks.

  • Call your pharmacist where you got the medications and ask them. They would know for sure if it is safe to mix with juice or milk. They can also give you usefull suggestions on how to get the medication into a child who likes to spit it out.

  • My oldest was like that. I literally had to pin him down. I know it seems negative but it had to be done. I love using those droppers you squeeze the end of it and the medicine comes out. I take the dropper and hold my childs cheeks and put the dropper into the corner of the mouth towards the back of the mouth and squirt it in. I know mean but it works. Im sorry to hear that your baby has eczema. I used to have it psoriasis and now it is gone buy shopping for safer stuff..it has also helped many others with eczema. I hope this helps you some.

  • Ask your doctor if they can be mixed with liquids like juice. Some medicines can be, some can't. Ask and be safe.

  • Depending on the age of the child..as infants I used to put it in their mouths and then blow in their face. It makes them swallow by instinct. Dunno werked fer me

  • no because she may not get all the medication and it will be diluted and not work as well. The best thing to do is lay her down, squirt the med in her mouth and blow in her face. It sounds bad but works like a charm, no harm done.
