Does anyone have any tips for giving gripe water to baby, trying to hold dd, pour some onto a spoon and pop in her mouth seems impossible, I need an extra arm!!

dilute in normal water or milk if giving a bottle. A medicine dropper would also do the trick if giving straight.

I swear by a medicine dropper. Much easier than a syringe which you need two hands for. Also found the sharpish plastic end bit of the syringe hurt dd's mouth. Trick is also to put the syringe/dropper into the side of her mouth as opposed to putting the liquid onto her tongue. Found it dribbled all over the place then.
