Bad medicine taker

Now that my son is post hemi-fontan he takes several medications and one being a pain medication called Lortab. It takes really nasty (I would know because my 5 month old has spit it back into my face a few times now) even though its apple flavored. We give it to him in a syringe because mixing it with milk would scar the poor baby and he would not drink the milk - as told by our pharmacist.

Well....now I have a new problem on top of him fighting me when it comes to his pain meds....He is starting to refuse his milk. I'm not sure if its the nipples and bottles that he is now back on at home after using the hospital ones, or if we may have given his milk with the Lortab taste still lingering in his mouth.
