My daughter is on infant gaviscon which has previously been so difficult to administer. I’ve been syringing it into her mouth and getting her to suck on my finger but it made a massive mess. I just gave her the first dose through the medifrida and it went straight in in 5 seconds!! Absolutely none dribbled out of her mouth and she wasn’t upset as she couldn’t taste it. I would definitely recommend this!
Before this purchase we struggled with baby taking his daily medicine and vitamins. We tried syringing into his cheek or squirting slowly while he was sucking a dummy but we’d find it would always be spat out or run down his chin.
This medicine dummy has been a lifesaver! He now gets every drop of his medicine and vitamins saving worries of if he had enough or changing clothes.
I’ll admit the syringe isn’t always the most secure in the dummy but we’ve never had any spills, we just make sure to keep pressure on it! What’s great as well is that you can use it with other universal syringes so I use the syringe supplied for vitamins and then swap it while keeping the dummy in his mouth with a standard syringe filled with medicine.
I’ve never had an issue with keeping clean either and I’m very paranoid with this as my baby was extremely premature. I fill the syringe with soapy water and squirt through, rinse throughly and sterilise in cold water Milton.
We bought this when it was £27 and I know probably costs nowhere near that to make and have seen cheaper but it is worth it and we will be buying it again at that price when or if we ever lose it or it deteriorates!

Sadly I had high hopes for this item but it did not deliver . I washed it and put it to sterilise one order to administer my baby’s medicine and it melted in the steriliser and also developed mould in the teet. Very worrying as this is extremely harmful and dangerous for infants . Avoid completely .
For the price I was not impressed with the quality. Also the syringe doesn’t stay in the pacifier reliably, one jolt or knock from your baby and it falls out causing a mess. Also medication ends up left in the pacifier so you need to pull air into the syringe and then use that to force the remaining medication out of the pacifier tube. It really isn’t a very well thought out product and certainly not worth the outrageous price
My daughter is on liquid medicine for her acid reflux and getting her to take it with the syringes given to us by the pharmacy was like pulling teeth. She would spit it out immediately. With this product she takes her medication no problem and it has significantly helped reduce her reflux and let us all get a bit more peace of mind and sleep. The trick is to make sure your baby has a deep latch/suck on the paci before slowly pushing the medicine.
The pacifier helps a bit to get your baby to take medicine (our little guy has liquid oral meds to take every morning because of bad reflux) but if your baby inst used to the type of tip on the fridababy pacifier it doesn't work that great. Our baby takes MAM pacifiers best, and this one is a completely different shape. He spits it out right away and gags a lot when you slowly dispense the medicine through it. I guess if your baby takes a similar pacifier it would work better?
