Do you need to tote pre-drawn liquid medications with you? Have you tried zip-close bags, but been unhappy with the results? Syringe Holster to the rescue!
A while back, I made my nieces each a makeup brush holder. My son had just been discharged from the NICU, and we began months and months of weekly clinic visits to the University hospital two hours away. Every trip, I would need to pack his mid-day meds in our diaper bag. I tried a zip-close plastic bag, I tried my reusable snack bags, I tried a small cup, I tried a handful of other things, and none worked particularly well. Driving home from our clinic visit in May, my mind was drifting and I found myself thinking about the those makeup brush holders. And suddenly, I thought how absolutely PERFECT they would be if I adapted them slightly for syringes.
And thus was born the Syringe Holster. I love ours, and I'm sure you'll love them, too.
Our Syringe Holsters are made with fun cotton prints, close with elastic cord and a cord lock, and make giving meds on-the-go so much easier! They are approx 15 inches long and 7.5 inches tall. There are eight compartments in four different widths, with room for 8-20 syringes, depending on the size of your syringes. The far-right compartment is extra wide to accommodate a small bottle of medicine, supplies, a tube of EMLA or steriod cream, a button cushion,or an extra extension set. (If you need more compartments, or use only syringes over 10-20 mL, or need a different configuration, please contact us about having a Holster made just for you. We can also make Holsters for 60 mL syringes, as well as holsters for insulin syringes.)
You'll want to pre-draw your meds and cap your syringes before putting them in the Holster. Roll it up and fasten the cord lock, and it's ready for your diaper bag, purse, backpack, or cooler. I've been known to toss ours in Teddy's feeding pump bag.
THIS LISTING is for a custom made syringe holster - it will be configured like the ones in the pictures, but we will make it with fabric you choose.
We can also change the configuration of our holsters to suit your needs, or make it to hold more or fewer syringes - but please contact us about your needs before ordering.
Please visit our fabrics page to see our current selection of fabrics and indicate both a first and second choice (in case we don't have enough of your first choice). You may also opt to choose two or three coordinating fabrics - if you do so, please let us know where you would like us to use each fabric. (The three parts of the holster are the outside, the inside, and the small part that holds the syringes.)
Personalization with Names or Phrases is available!
If you would like your holster to be personalized with a name or short phrase, please type the name or short phrase you'd like in the space provided, indicate the font you prefer (by number), and what color thread you prefer (if you have a preference - if no preference is indicated, we'll choose what we think would look best).
We will copy/paste EXACTLY what you've entered in the space provided, complete witn any punctuation marks. Please double check before submitting your order. Unless you indicate a different preference, names will be placed along the short edge of the Holster, as pictured. Phrases of more than one word may be placed on more than one line.
If the print you've chosen is busy (lots of colors, lots of details), a thicker/fatter font will show up better.
