have you tried applesauce sherbert juice or any baby bood friut or yogurt. I am so sorry it is frustrating when the baby has no idea why mommy wants him/her eat something they don't like. It took 3 of us to give my daughter meds. I found mixing it with liquid like flavored milk juice yogurt juice and puting it in a syringe and squirting it in the cheek and as mean as it sounds hold the jaw closed until he/she swallows. Good Luck and God Bless I hope this helps in someway God Bless you and I hope you baby gets better soon. Barb
