At our 6mo our Pedi is recommending a liquid multi vit, fishoil, and floride.
I have the dropper but cannot figure out how to give this to our daughter without it spilling out or her crying.

HELP!

I would squeeze her cheeks to help keep it in her mouth and lay her down so she will swallow it. Just shoot it to the back of her mouth or into the side of her cheek. The nurse did this with my baby for medicine and there was no mess.

It's not super common from everything I've seen, but if your doctor is recommending them it's probably for a good reason.
