Disclosure: I received a GloDose as part of an advertorial.
When my daughter needs medication in the middle of the night, I can make my way into the kitchen in the dark. However, in order to measure the appropriate amount of medicine, I must turn on the light. Turning the lights on disrupts my sleep and the sleep of my sick daughter. Thus, when recently offered the chance to review GloDose, the light-up medicine dropper, I jumped at the opportunity.
GloDose is the first light-up medicine dropper that makes administering medicine safer and easier. With a soft glow, parents can accurately measure the medicine dosage with the lights off. The mom-invented GloDose is the bright solution for caring parents who want a safer and more convenient option when administering medicine to sick children. GloDose was also awarded the Parent Tested Parent Approved seal in 2011.
Using the GloDose is as simple as using other medicine droppers. Attach the handle to the tube, squeeze the bulb, and suck up the correct amount of liquid medication. To turn on the light, click the button on the top of the handle. The soft blue glow illuminates the entire dropper, making measuring medication in the dark a breeze. After giving the medicine to the child, separate the dropper tube from the handle. Carefully rinse the inside of the handle to remove any medication. Wash the tube in warm, soapy water. Do not immerse the top in water.
I am incredibly pleased with the GloDose. First, using the GloDose is as easy as using regular medicine droppers. My only complaint is that I had trouble filling up the entire dropper to the one teaspoon line. The bulb simply did not offer enough suction to easy fill the entire tube. However, for smaller doses, GloDose works perfectly.
In terms of the light on the GloDose, the blue light is soft enough not to disturb a sick, sleeping child but bright enough to make measuring the correct dosage of medicine easy. With the GloDose, I no longer have to turn on the kitchen light to get my sick daughter medicine in the middle of the night. By not turning on the light, I will no longer disturb her sleep or mine. The GloDose is an ingenious invention for giving medication to sick children.
Final Verdict: GloDose is my new go-to dropper for administering medicine to my daughter at night. Using the GloDose is as easy as using regular medicine droppers but with the added bonus of a soft blue light. I can now measure correct dosages of liquid medicine in the dark without having to turn on any lights. GloDose helps me give my sick daughter medicine without disrupting her sleep or mine.
I received a GloDose mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
