5 Innovative Inventions for Baby and Toddler Health
Baby’s safety and health is the top priority of parents, followed by baby’s comfort. A comforted baby heals quicker and eases a parent’s worry. Here are some of my favorite inventions for baby and toddler health and comfort.
For parents of young children, oogiebear is the first booger removal tool for babies and toddlers that safely and gently removes both sticky and dried mucus from a child’s nostrils, and it can also be used to clean baby’s ears. The unique design prevents the tool from going in too far and harming baby or toddler. oogiebear was created with comfort in mind, offering two unique ends to remove wet or dry mucus effectively to help children breathe easier and soothe them at a time of incredible discomfort.
2. Aqua Scale
As any new parent or pediatrician can attest, healthy weight gain is crucial in the first few months of a child’s life. Aqua Scale, the first multifaceted baby bathtub of its kind, allows parents to know the precise weight of their baby while constantly monitoring the temperature of the water all during bath time. The unique shape of the tub and anti slip insert safely holds babies up to six months in an ideal bathing position. Once your baby can sit up, Aqua Scale converts to a toddler tub accommodating children up to two years of age.
The Kidz-Med® Medicine Dispenser featuring the unique “plunger” action! Finally it’s easy to administer an accurate dose of medicine — even to finicky infants and toddlers! A small channel inside the dispenser delivers the medicine towards the back of the baby’s tongue — just the way nature would! One of the most common reasons young parents call their pediatrician or nurse is because finicky infants sometimes spit out their medication. The medicine dispenser is ergonomically designed, with a hinged “syringe” and a small channel inside the pacifier nipple which allows the medicine to be delivered either by the baby’s normal sucking, or gently and accurately by depressing the “plunger”.
Buzzy is a reusable device that blocks pain on contact by using a vibrating motor and a wing-shaped ice pack for natural pain relief. Buzzy can be used for everything from itching to splinters to burns and tick removal. Buzzy was proven effective for kids’ and adults’ injections, and puts pain control in their hands!
Pacif-i is the world’s first smart pacifier that monitors a baby’s temperature and transmits the data to an app on a parent’s iOS or Android smartphone or tablet. With a temperature sensor built into the pacifier’s silicon teat, Pacif-i transmits temperature data via Bluetooth Smart (sometimes referred to as Bluetooth 4.0 or Bluetooth Low Energy) to a free app on an iOS or Android smartphone or tablet. The app determines when the temperature is the most accurate and then time-stamps and plots the temperature data in a graph. Via the app, parents can record when medication was administered, set-up alerts/ reminders and share the data with carers and medical professionals.
