Frequently Asked Questions

What makes Medi-Pals different from other medicine dispensers?

The nipple of the Medi-Pals medicine dispenser is superior to those of other medicine dispensers because the Medi-Pals nipple is designed with a diverter – 2 angled ports – which fans the medicine out toward the inside of the child's cheeks rather than directly into the back of the child's throat.

Additionally, unlike other similar products, with Medi-Pals, the syringe with the medicine fits snugly into the back of the nipple so that the medicine cannot leak out or get stuck between the syringe and nipple. The caregiver, therefore, is able to ensure that the infant or child gets the correct dose each and every time.

How do I clean my Medi-Pals product?

Medi-Pals medication dispensers are easy to clean. The nipple and faceplate are easy to put together and take apart. The medication dispenser is dishwasher-safe.

Are Medi-Pals medication dispensers only for infants?

Medi-Pals can be used from birth to age five. It's ideal for sick infants, but it can be used for other young children who might have an aversion to medicine, thereby making administering accurate dosages difficult.

Are Medi-Pals medication dispensing nipples only for medicine?

Medi-Pals medication dispensers can be used for oral vitamins, pain relievers, oral antibiotics, vaccines, or for other medicinal purposes. They can also be used with baby food or even honey. If you can get it into the syringe, it will work.

Where are Medi-Pals medication dispensers made?

Medi-Pals are made in the U.S.A.

The Faceplate seems large.

Of the large group of moms surveyed, the current sized Faceplate was the most popular choice, because it helped to cover the caregiver's hand when using. However, we realize there may be moms and children that prefer a smaller Faceplate, so we have several new ones in the works. Check back soon to see our latest fun new Faceplate characters.

The Nipple becomes harder when the syringe is inserted.

The Nipple design has been refined to its current state through several years of prototyping and development. Earlier thin/more flexible designs could not seal properly with different syringes. The current Nipple provides the best syringe engagement, yet still received mom-approval by giving the child a soft and protective contact surface.
