vidaylin-baby wont drink it!

my daughter is 16 months ,her doc says that she is aneamic and that she has to drink vidaylin vitamins and minerals-only problem is she refuses ,she cries terribly and spits it -there is just no way we get can get her to drink it!what should we do?
i have another question ,she woke up screaming the other night and then calms down,this repeated for a while until i gave her buscopan because it looked like she was cramping-a friend says it is colic--what is colic and what causes it?

We do not see colic at this age and sometimes children may have a frightening experience in their dreams. The most important thing is that she is not feverish and otherwise well. Sometimes it does require some innovation to get them to drink the iron syrup (Ferrodrops), but the most important thing is that she eats a healthy balanced diet.

My grandson has an eating issue and it is serious in my opinion. Pediatrician hasn't focused on eating issues or his parents who no longer "fight" with him to eat...they give he and his sister chips and cookies.

My baby is 10 months and also doesn't like to drink Vidaylin. I now mix it with his bottle of milk. Give it a try, it works for me.
