Has anyone got any advice on how to convince a stubborn 3 year old to take his antibiotics?.. We've tried everything, spoon, syringe, mixing with food / drink, bribing. No much luck yet.

thanks

I tell my dd that dr brown bear (frOm peppa pig) says she has to them and pretend to call him. Stickers and chocolate buttons work. 3 buttons, one before to whet the appetite and a promise of two more afterwards.
