HOW TO USE THE SYRINGE
Shake the bottle for about 5 seconds and then remove the childproof cap by pushing the cap down and twisting anti-clockwise at the same time.
You will notice a reducer plug in the neck of the bottle.
Gently insert the end of the syringe into the hole and ensure it is secure.
Hold the syringe in place and turn the bottle upside down. Using your other hand, gently pull-down the syringe plunger to the required dosage (either 2.5 ml or 5 ml).
Turn the bottle the right way up, then remove the syringe by holding onto the bottle and twisting out gently.
Place the syringe inside the child's mouth against the cheek and press the plunger slowly to release the medicine.
After use, the reducer plug should remain in the neck of the bottle. Wipe the top clean and rinse the cap before replacing. Wash the syringe by drawing the plunger in and out in soapy water several times. Then rinse the syringe in clean water in the same way.
