About Pacidose – a Safe and Effective Baby Medicine Dispenser
I’m Dr. Scoville, but at home, I’m Momma.
After years of watching kids spit out medication in the ER and at home with my own baby, I knew there had to be a better way. My first concern, as a doctor, was accurate dosing, so I created Pacidose with two features: it attaches to a hospital-grade oral syringe for perfect measurement, and a tiny tube down the middle that prevents the liquid from being wasted in the nipple. My daughter though, at 13 months, didn’t care about dosing, she just wanted the nipple to feel like her favorite binkie. I’ve found too, that if a kid doesn’t use a pacifier, Pacidose is still more effective than a hard syringe or cup in giving medicine. Even feisty toddlers who have outgrown the pacifier also benefit from Pacidose because it’s fun and different.
I believe, as a mother and a doctor, Pacidose is truly a problem solving product. You’ll have peace of mind, and your child will get well quicker.

- Measure the proper dose of medicine into the syringe. Check the amount again. If you have questions call your doctor or pharmacist.
- Attach the syringe to Pacidose.
- Position your child in your lap facing away from you. Introduce Pacidose into his/her mouth and after your baby starts to suck, slowly push the syringe plunger in. Make sure your baby is swallowing before giving more.
- Rinse Pacidose and syringe with water. Do not use the dishwasher. Disconnect to store.
Tips and Tricks:
- Give medication when your child is hungry.
- If your child has a difficult time with pacifiers and or medication, take the syringe off and dip Pacidose into another liquid. Let your child taste it and play with Pacidose under your supervision. Once Pacidose is a familiar object then attach the syringe and give medicine through it.
- Give a familiar liquid several times through Pacidose first before loading it with medicine. Then, after the medicine, again give something familiar.
- If your child is suffering from vomiting or diarrhea, Pacidose may be use for oral rehydration therapy. Give small amounts (2.5 – 5 mL) every 20 minutes. By giving small amounts frequently, your baby can regain lost fluids.
Never leave Pacidose alone with your child. It is not a pacifier, it is a medical device. Discard if you see any signs of damage or weakness.
