Product Review: ReliaDose®
Not so long ago Leah Sparks from Blaine Pharmaceuticals emailed me and asked if I'd be interested in testing out a new product, ReliaDose®. I told her I'd be happy to!

What I didn't understand at the time, until I received it in the mail, is that this product is really designed for children younger than mine. It's designed for babies 0-18 months. That didn't stop me from opening the box, examining the product thoroughly and reading the literature that was included.

Let me just say, I wish I would've had this when Snuggle Bug was a baby! It would've saved me a lot of worry about accurate dosage administration and trying to figure out how to get a syringe full of medicine down Snuggle Bug's throat to without him spitting most of it out! I really like the looks of this product!

This product was designed by a mom having dosing problems with her baby. Apparently her son had an extreme dislike of all medication and, after trying everything, she invented ReliaDose®. How clever of her! Why can't I think of neat inventions like this one?

Here's what the literature had to say:

ReliaDose® is specifically designed to work with a child's natural desire to feed from a bottle while ensuring complete and gentle dosing of medication. The dual-chamber nipple allows medication to be passed directly into the baby's moth through the inner chamber of the nipple, while the outer chamber delivers formula or juice, surrounding and masking the taste of the medicine. The inner syringe ensures dosing accuracy.

If you're interested in this product, you can order it online at the ReliaDose® website for $11.95 or at these other retailers . And you can get a free accessory pack by mail too!

I'd offer to send you mine, but I'm holding on to it to use when our second baby arrives!

Thanks, Leah for sending me this ReliaDose® product!

I have to wonder how well/if this would work for breastfeeding babies.. And I confess, my daughter is 18 mos. and I'm tempted to order it just to see if it'll make our life any easier.. she is a HORRId medicine taker!

I wish this had been around when my kids were little. This is a great invention!

I'll have to bookmark this as it sounds like something I could definitely use with a new baby!

You are the third person to mention this to me within the past week. I am definitely going to have to look into this product. Thanks!
