Won't take his medicine!

My son is 2 and 1/2 months. He has taken amoxicillin and vitamin D since he came home from the hospital at a week old. I breastfeed but when he first came home I would give him a small bottle of expressed milk every morning with those two mixed in. For about a month and 1/2, he hasn't gotten a bottle and I just use a syringe. He has never had a problem with that method. But one of his doctors started him on Cyrtha 3 syrup at the beginning of this week. I cannot get him to swallow this medicine!! I've tried diluting it with water and also blowing in his face to make him swallow. Neither one has worked and I just wanted some advice on how I should get him to take it.

I have a medicine pacifier that my son loves this is the only way he'll take meds.

I have no clue. They make pacies that you can put the medicine in at Walgreen's. You could try that maybe?
