After lots and lots of tries, finally put the amoxicillin in a little coffee sweetened with international delight and filled the rest of the bottle with milk. He loves coffe so he drank it right away. About 1/3 sweet coffee to 2/3 milk. I know coffee isn't good for babies, but I was DESPERATE!!! Double ear infection

Adding that much other liquid to his medicine is a really bad idea. I do not know if mixing it like that will harm the actual medicine, but even if he loves it you can not guarantee that he will drink it all the next time and then he will not be getting his full dose.
