Spilly Spoon vs Medicine With A Teaspoon : Review

Today I came across a rather alarming news article, a recent study has shown how in the age of the 21st century parents are still exploiting their children to potentially harmful amounts of drugs by administering medicine using a tea/tablespoon! Around 1 third of parents regularly administer medicine to their children without measuring out the recommended dosage!

Since the arrival of my son 5 years ago I have always had medicine spoons or syringes in the house, and never once considered giving medicine to him (or Leah) without the use of the correct dosages which are plainly layed out for me to read, understand and administer.

For the full news article on the finds please read the full report from Mail Online.

I would now like to introduce to you the Spilly Spoon, a fun and easier way to get your children to take their medicine.

Spilly Spoon 1

Spilly Spoon is designed to be a easier way to get your children to take their medicine, as I am now a mother of 2 children I now have twice the battle getting medicine into my kids. Leah aged 2 hates all medicines in anyway shape or form whereas Lewis will finally happily take his twice daily antihistamines with ease although in the earlier days it was really difficult. Even with a syringe or normal medicine spoon Lewis would spit the medicine back out or choke on it.

With the Spilly Spoon, it promotes a no spill design… simply pour your medicine into the tube and administer to your child. You can even lie the soon down on a flat surface with the medicine already inserted (up to 10ml) and ready to use, it will not spill.

Spilly Spoon 2We have now been using the Spilly Spoon for 2 days, Lewis and I are really impressed with it and Lewis always asks for his “bumpy spoon” as he enjoys giving himself his medicine.

To clean simply wash with warm soapy water or dishwasher and for younger children who still require the use of a steriliser, this great little product is steriliser safe.

Available to purchase direct with a small shipping cost or from most high street stores with an RRP price of £4.99.

      Thats brilliant to hear. We’ve been using syringes religiously until we hear of the spilly spoon… now we happily use both.
