How else can you feed your baby medication?

My little 4 month old dd is on Lactulose twice a day for her constipation, which works, but only when we can get it into her. She makes it such a song and dance taking it from the syringe, and more ends up on her face than swallowed. Does anyone have any other solutions that work?

Can it be mixed with water and given as a drink from a cup/bottle?

She should probably be on movicol not laculose and a lot easier to give !

Do they have a pacifier?

Are you putting the syringe into the cheek rather than the middle of the mouth?
You lose less that way

Not really much help for now but when she's older put it in a yoghurt they never know it's in there

Try and put it in her milk if she is bottle fed, she is a bit young for water..
