Any tips?
Currently sucking it off a spoon she's feeding herself but it's not all going in.
Syringe just makes her scream until she is sick.

Sachets? We had similar problems with dd2, we used to let her suck it out of a sachet. As she got older she preferred us to give her a syringe and let her operate it herself.

Amazon and boots have a medicine dummy, we used it for both Dc and it is great for getting ti all in with no fuss.

Well done, our DD1 refused, gagged, vomited to the extent that she had to have suppositories before her first birthday. Nearly 5 now, still won't take Calpol but will have disprol hidden in juice!!

Don't give it to her straight from the sachet, they are not always the right amount so she may be given more then she should have for her age. Use a syringe, give her little bits at a time.
