My name is Dora, I am a mum of two boys and when they were little, I found it a struggle to give them medicine, especially my second baby. My first son was on reflux medication for a long time and I was always worried about hurting his gums with the hard plastic syringe. I had an even bigger issue with my second baby as he completely refused to take his medication. He would pull away and cry uncontrollably. It was heart breaking to see him so distressed. I felt helpless and used to cry myself a lot of the time because I was so overwhelmed with the whole experience. He either spat the medicine out, was sick on it or the medicine would just end up all over him, me or the floor which meant I never knew how much of it he swallowed. It was always such an upsetting experience for him as well as me. I used to worry all the time that he would become even more unwell if he didn't get the right dose of medication. I used a medicine dummy which helped as at least I wasn't worried about hurting his little gums but as he had no interest in dummies, I had to use the plunger and on many occasions accidently shot it too fast down his throat and made him choke. I just couldn't find a good enough solution. There were so many times when I was walking around the room rocking my baby to calm him down and just couldn't stop thinking "There has to be a better and safer way!" I started thinking of a solution and the idea of MEDAPTI was born. The more I read into it, the more I realised that there were many parents that had the same problem as me and my invention could really help them.
