Can I mix med with milk?

I' m giving my 11month old Creche Guard every morning but I' m having a hard time doing so. I only have to give him 1ml, but not even that little gets into his mouth. I' ve tried every method but he just spits it out. I sometimes even have to use 3-4 ml to try again and just ends up giving up. People tell me to squirt it into the back of his mouth in his cheek, but he gets a way to spit it out. We even try to put in the dummy immediately after the meds are in his mouth but he spits it out even with the dummy in his mouth.
Can I mix the Creche Guard with milk or something else? Will the Creche Guard still do it' s job. I know it sounds like a stupid question, but I' m desperate to try something that will work.

This is not a stupid question at all. Unfortunately you should not mix the Creche Guard with his formula. In fact as it is summer now, stop the Crche guard until late March and start again then.It will be easier to use it then or you can change to Viral Choice junior which most children seem to take well.
