    How do you give it? In the bottle? With the syringe? It doesnt taste that good, so when i tried to give it with the syrine it was a fiasco.

    We tried both but i found the best way was - give a bit of bottle, take bottle out, squirt some gripe water in, replace bottle. This way he would swallow it as he was drinking bottle instead of spitting it at me

    I gave it in his bottle as well, as it's only 5ml it was swallowed before he realised it

    I used to put it in Fran's bottle, or mix it with a little water and feed it that way. She would spit it out if I tried to give it her on a spoon or by syringe lol.

    syringe for us, but at 65p a syringe it got quite expensive as its so sticky the syringe got stuck & had to replace it nearly every day. So we just put it in a bottle mixed with a little water. X

    As we give our little man both infacol (at the beginning of the feed) and gripe water (at end of feed), we ended up using the pipette from an empty infacol bottle. It works quite well but he does still spit a little back up. I'm breast feeding so could not give it in a bottle.
