    A mum's clever tactic to get ill babies to take their medicine has gone viral.

    Helena Lee, 33, used a syringe and a baby bottle to give her eight-week soon Alfie his Calpol syrup.

    With the infant struggling to gulp the mixture down, she used the syringe from the packet to push the infant paracetamol through his bottle.

    The mother shared photos of the ingenious trick on Facebook which has been shared more than 89,000 times.

    Eight-week-old Alfie Lee to takes his Calpol.

    "So for the last 24 hours I've struggled to get Alfie to take Calpol, he has ended up covered in half of it where he spits it at me......

    "Then i remembered seeing this trick..

    "Not 1 bit got wasted and no tears. Please feel free to share with any baby mummies you know xxxxx."

    Helena, who also has a four-year-old boy named Harrison, was giving Alfie the medicine due to a high temperature after having his first childhood immunisations.

    The mum, from Feltham in south-west London, said: "All the tricks I'd tried with Harrison just didn't work with Alfie.


    Helena Lee shared photos of the method she used to get her eight-week-old son Alfie to take his Calpol.

    "I'd tried giving him little bits at a time, squirting it all in at once, tried in the middle of feeds, I even tried a spoon but he just gagged or spat it out at me - he then wasn't getting all the dose so it wasn't bringing his temperature down.

    "It was then I remembered seeing this trick. I am completely overwhelmed by the response it's had. I just

    intended to help out a few of my mummy friends on Facebook."

    The post has attracted more than 40,000 comments from impressed parents.
