As I sit down to write this post, our family is recovering from the kind of ongoing bouts of winter illness that make you want to move to the tropics. How do you get a screaming and very unwell baby to take the medicine you know they need?
Between painkillers and antibiotics, you might find yourself trying to force medicine into an unhappy, screaming child up to eight or ten times a day. Having a sick child is stressful enough for everyone without that little battle added to the mix.
If you have the kind of kid who doesn’t take medicine easily, the EeziMed dummy might be the solution you’re looking for. The EeziMed is essentially a dummy combined with a medicinal syringe. Medicine inside the syringe can either be sucked through the teat by the child, or the plunger on the back of the dummy can be slowly depressed to deposit the medicine in baby’s mouth. Sucking on the dummy makes it difficult for the baby to spit out the medicine. The dummy can be washed in water or sterilising solution.
