can you squirt it into the back of her mouth with a syringe?

have you tried an injection dispenser and put it to the back of her throat so it goes straight down

I used the dropper off of an infocol bottle and shirted it into back of DD cheek and the gently blow and she swallows it and thinks it funny. (she is 6 months old and spits out medicine normally)
