ReliaDose – A MomGadget Review

ReliaDose is a baby bottle medicine feeder. Sound a bit confusing to you? It really isn’t confusing, but it is a great invention. Imagine a baby bottle that has a medicine syringe connected to it. It makes giving your baby medicine easier with less of the mess and struggle.

When I first began this I was going to tell you all about experiments I had tried on the bottle, like using water in it instead of medicine, etc. But after my little man got his shots (5 months old) he ended up with a fever for two days. This little bottle became something I’d know fairly well and love.

With my other children we didn’t have something like this and we’d have to hold them down to give them medicine. Did you ever go through that? Another thing they’d do was spit it out, this didn’t happen with ReliaDose. Instead he happily drank it down like it was a bottle.

What is ReliaDose? It has a bottle frame, inside the center of the frame is the medicine dropper/syringe that connects to the nipple. Disconnect the syringe and get the desired amount needed and connect it back to the nipple. Make sure it is secure and give it to your baby. They’ll suck it down in no time and not even know the difference.

The only problem I saw with this was a small one. My little one doesn’t need much medicine and couldn’t get everything out of the nipple unless I squeezed it out into his mouth. Other than that it was a blessing. Stop the hassle of giving medicine and get your ReliaDose bottle. You can purchase the ReliaDose bottles at CVS, Kroger, Ralph or the website for $11.95.

Recommended for ages 0-18 months.

I have one of these. My almost-2-year-old who has NEVER used a bottle (I breastfeed) had NO problem with this. He needed antibiotics and REFUSED to take them without a HUGE fight before we tried this product.

With this product, he drank the liquid in the bottle while I squirted the medicine in and he never even realized there was any medicine IN it.

As for “flow control” – the parent/guardian administering the medicine controls the flow of the medicine; it is not automatic. I just pushed the plunger a little at a time and in seconds, the medicine was down him and he finished the remainder of the liquid at his leisure.

For that last little bit, if, while baby is sucking, you disconnect the syringe just for a second, then reconnect, it ‘releases’ that last bit so baby can suck it down with the liquid, in my experience :)

This is a lifesaver for us. Our now eight month old daughter has to take steroids. At 5 months she hated the taste of the medicine and it was always a struggle getting her to even open her mouth and then most of it ended up on her or us. Since we got the ReliaDose she takes her medicine without a fight even if we just put water in it. We are on our second bottle because the numbers wore off on the syringe but we’ve used it twice a day everyday.

I found this bottle on clearance at Walmart for $1.00 and I bought 2 of them. Recently my 8 month old son has needed 4ml of amoxicillin 3 times a day. This bottle is a blessing. We don’t have to fight with him or worry about him spitting it out and not getting his full dose.

He actually sucks so hard that we don’t have to push the syringe. He sucks so hard it just goes in on it’s own.

Oh and I figured out how to get the small amount left in the nipple out- once the syringe is completely empty, pull it out of the bottle, then whatever medicine is left in the nipple will get sucked out by the baby.
