ReliaDose Review & Giveaway CLOSED

CLOSED
I hate it when my kids get sick. Not only does it mean that someone has to stay home with them, but there's the added complication of actually giving them medicine to make them feel better. Using the dropper to force Tylenol liquid down their throats is really ineffective. It doesn't taste very good, so they spit it out. And if you try to give them the dose and they don't swallow it, you still can't give them another dose for 4-6 hours. With ReliaDose, I don't need to worry about that with my new baby.

Invented by a mom, ReliaDose takes the stress out of giving medicine to your baby. It's accurate because you control the dosing while your baby feeds naturally. It can also be used with whatever your baby likes to drink, so it masks the taste of medicine while fitting into the baby's normal routine. ReliaDose is the unique medicine delivery system that ensures easy, accurate dosing every time.
My Take
As much as I'm not looking forward to my little one getting her first illness, at least I'm not dreading it the way I was with the twins. I am breastfeeding this little one, but when she does get sick I can pump some breast milk to put into the ReliaDose bottle and then use the syringe to give her liquid Tylenol, Advil, antibiotics or even vitamin supplements. Also, because it uses a graduated syringe, I know I'll be giving the baby an accurate dose.

The ReliaDose bottle is also very easy and simple to use. First, you fill the ReliaDose bottle with whatever your baby likes to drink (formula, milk, juice, etc.) making sure to leave empty syringe in bottle while filling. Then twist the bottle collar onto the ReliaDose bottle clockwise until it locks into place. You can now remove the syringe for filling (making sure to keep the bottle upside down so you don't spill any drink.) Fill the oral dosing syringe with the correct amount of medicine and place the syringe into the bottle when ready to dispense. Now you can begin feeding, making sure to administer the medication at a rate comfortable for your baby. Once your baby has finished the bottle you can remove the syringe. After use, be sure to wash all components in warm, soapy water or use the dishwasher.

I am so glad to have a new way to give medicine, because the "old way" just doesn't cut it. I will know that my baby has gotten the full dosage, and I don't have to worry about her finishing the full bottle of milk - as long as the syringe is empty, she will have gotten all of the medicine she needs.

Cost: You can buy ReliaDose on Amazon.com for $9.47 + shipping ($$$$) or at your local drugstore.

Overall: We give ReliaDose a 9/10!

One very lucky reader will win a ReliaDose bottle!

I love, love, love Reliadose!!! Our pediatrician gave us one free one time and I was hooked. It was the ONLY way our son would take anything. And I mean it. He had to have an IV once to get medicine in, that's how bad he was with fighting and then gagging up medicine. ReliaDose was the ONLY answer. (Sorry, I know this messes up the comments for the giveaway but I had to weigh in!)
