I bought some Cod Liver Oil but the thick, oiliness makes me gag - I wish I'd have just paid the extra for caplets. I don't want to waste it, so anyone have any tips for taking it? Will any beverages mask it or do I just have to take it like a shot <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

I take one small teaspoon, quickly, followed by gulping juice. My 4yo takes it this way as well. And it does get easier as you get used to it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
The trick for me is to not take too much at one time, and to hold my breath until it is swallowed.

I fill a glass about 1/5 full of OJ and stir in a teaspoon of cod liver oil and swig it down FAST! Holding your nose helps a lot too. It gets better with time..
