I've just been prescribed infant Gaviscon for my 10 week old (fingers crossed, we both get some sleep now!) but want a little help with administering it! Specifically, can I make it thicker than 15ml? The first dose I think I got 50% into the little guy, and a thicker formula would mean I could do it faster, before he starts fussing!

I'm using a dosing pacifier, tried bottle but he said a forceful no!

I mix it in 5ml cooled, boiled water and squirt it into the inside of DS's cheek with a syringe. I tried mixing it with EBM but he spat it at me everytime, whereas with the water he just pulls faces!

I made it into a thicket paste, sometimes with rbm sometimes water. When you make it in a dish pump it in and out of the syringe at speed, this will mic it much better than any other methods

Thanks guys, good to know it others havent needed 15ml, and I'll try with EBM tomorrow!
