Citris flavered?

So who was the wise guy that flavered ogmeden (not spelling it right I'm sure) like citris?  He hates it, worse then bubble gum.  He turns his head and presses his lips shut.  Once I was able to pinch his nose shut and his mouth popped open but he knows now what I'm doing so it doesn't work anymore.  It is a fight to give it to hm every time.  He is supposed to have 1/2 a tspn and I think he's  lucky to get 1/4 of it in his mouth.    I started putting a little BM in his ears to hopefully get the ear infections gone but I'm not sure the medicine is doing much since he won't let us get it in his mouth.

Augmenten?  (I'm sure that's not right, too, but I couldn't even get the rest of the post because I sat here trying to figure out what you're talking about!  ROFL!  It was like a puzzle.  Sorry.

I asked about flavoring and they told me that it was alread flavored and that we didn't want to mess with it.  What baby is gonna want citris flavored medicine though.  Older kids maybe but not babies.

 My LO is the WORST at taking meds.  The only way I've gotten her to swallow is to wait till she's hungry, use a syringe to dispense it VERY slowly back beside her throat (like the farthest reaches of her cheek) then blow in her face so she has to swallow.  Even then, sometimes she outsmarts me and holds it there till the end of my "process", then grins really big and lets it run out the corners of her mouth.  I feel your pain.

I can't even get it into his mouth!  He holds his face away and presses his lips shut and if I get it in his mouth, he pushes the whole thing out with his tongue.  He still has a pretty strong tongue thrust reflex but as fast as I get it in there, it comes right back out.  Pinching the nose thing helped get his mouth opened, the first time.  I'll be glad when the meds are done.  And for the poster with the peppermint flavored meds, that's rediculous too.  Oh well, we can hope our kids don't get sick much but they need to work on these flavorings.

We've tried that method too and my little guy does the same thing. He has also started to purse his lips together and shake his head from side to side just so I can't keep the syringe in his mouth. I don't think he's gotten a full dose of his antibiotic since the first time I gave it to him this week with the spoon thing they gave me at the pharmacy. He took it well with that the first time and then realized what it was. They're just to smart.
