Bringing up a baby can be stressful but provided that youâve got the right tools for the job it doesnât have to be. An ill baby is never much fun and can be particularly stressful for new or first-time parents, and giving medicine can be a major hassle. However, a baby medicine dispenser can make sure your bundle of joy gets the medication they need without any fuss, getting them back into their own routines and giggling again.
A baby medicine dispenser usually consists of a small beaker with a detachable teat. Medicine is distributed into the beaker and the teat is snapped on so that your baby can then take their medicine as if they were having an ordinary feed.
Using a baby medicine dispenser is a lot safer and simpler than using a spoon as you can carefully measure and monitor how much medicine your baby gets and you wonât end up with it being wasted through spillage. Baby medicine dispensers are carefully designed to reduce spitting up and gagging so your child wonât be distressed when using one. You should wash your dispenser thoroughly after youâve purchased it and boil the teat for around three minutes. Wash your dispenser thoroughly in hot soapy water or in the dishwasher after each use and donât leave your child unsupervised whilst they are using a baby medicine dispenser.
