Looking for inspiration on how to disguise plain movicol. I've got fresh orange, fizzy pop, jelly and ice lollies (do you have any recipes) so far

My son used to have it in a small amount of orange juice. He is super fussy but somehow we managed it like this. Good luck!

I'll give this a try thanks, he didn't entertain it in dilute so fingers crossed

Strong squash first thing in the morning when they're thirsty.

Milk last thing at night. Or we get the chocolate flavoured one and add to choc nesquik

The only way my DD would have it was in warm milk, and only so much at a time that it didn't really affect the taste, so I split sachets, no trying to dissolve a full one in 62.5 mls of water/liquid! When I tasted movicol , it seemed quite salty to me, so as lactulose had also been suggested at one point , after months of trying fruitlessly to give movicol, I found adding a little lactulose to the milk sweetened it and balanced out the movicol taste.We called it "Magic Milk" in our house! As she got a bit older the constipation seemed to naturally become less problematic though we still need to resort to occasional Movicol.

My daughter used to take it best in orange juice.

I am in movicol mummies too - there is another thread on here that I posted on the other day that had loads of ideas on.

Jelly, ice lollies and milk are where we hide it! My little one only really drinks water so had to get a little inventive!

MamaG1980 Tue 18-Jul-17 22:54:45

Thanks guys, I've been advised not to put it in milk, not sure why though. I'll

There's a chocolate one!

Put it in a cup with a lid and say it's milkshake

Strong black currant squash works well in our house.

Another thumbs up for Orange juice. He won't take it in anything else.

I'm very new to this, so please do t shoot me if this is a stupid question. If I made jelly with movicol this morning does it need to be eaten within 24 hrs like when you make it up for a drink?
