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.

  1. 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.
