The Medicine Dispensing Pacifier

By David Ponce

Getting medicine into a baby seems to me to be about as simple as cleaning a tiger’s teeth. That is if you try the brute force approach. So, here’s a different tack: deceit.

The Numimed Dispenser Pacifier is pretty much just what the name implies. You insert a dose of the dreaded liquid inside the pacifier and con baby into thinking he’s getting his good’ole sucking rubber. Apparently, the fact that you’ll be delivering the medicine at the back of the throat makes it so that the liquid bypasses most taste glands.

No clue on price.

    I actually have first hand experience with this one!! They are fairly cheap and work really well!! The only problem is that it’s difficult to dispense the entire dose. One designed with a syringe like this one might work better.

    I was going to suggest the syringe one as well. My 9 month old doesn’t have any choice when I have to give her a dose… lay her down, tilt her head to the side, dispense the dropper into her cheek and then stick a pacifier in. Done and done.
