Hope this is right area for this! 8 wk old on ranitidine three times a day for reflux. Won't take a bottle and hates dropper and syringe. Tried so gently doing big by bit into side of cheek, blowing face to make him swallow etc but either comes up straight away or pockets then spits up... V unsure if getting any medicine at all! Ideas?! Thank you!!!

Hold a spoon on her tongue for a few seconds - a gentle push down makes them swallow.
