I happened to be in Asda when I need some more liquid paracetamol for my son and they had an offer of an alternative Cherry flavour the strawberry flavour which is shown in the image. I usually buy Morrison's own brand paracetamol which is strawberry flavour but for some reason thought it might be a change Dosage The dosage is clearly marked on the side of the bottle and on the box For children 3months - 1year - 1/2 - one 5ml spoonful up to 4 times a day For children 1year - 6years - one to two 5ml spoonfuls up to 4 times a day For children 6years - 12years - two to four 5ml spoonfuls up to 4 times a day The bottle warns not ...

As much as we would love to keep our children 100% healthy, this is not always possible. Coming into contact with other children, humans and the environment in general may cause illnesses. Children can also get ear infections, stomach aches and the most common...teething pains. Sometimes an ice cold teething ring just won't cut it and we need something a bit stronger to soothe them. *Product* This is the Asda Infant's and Children's Paracetamol Suspension which is suitable from 3months onwards. This comes in liquid form and is designed to provide relief of mild to moderate pain and mainly teething pain and the reduction of fever. It is ... Read the complete review

I have only recently discovered (well in the last 6-8 months) that you can buy children's paracetamol that isn't Calpol! This may seem a bit strange coming from a mother of a 3 year old and a 1 year old. But the reason for this is that my eldest daughter never particularly suffered with any sort of pain or temperatures during the first couple of years of her life, but being the good mother than I am, I had a bottle of Calpol in the cupboard on standby for when she needed it. It seemed to last forever, I never found myself browsing the medicine aisles in supermarkets. Then arrived her baby sister. Her first 6 months passed relatively easily, ... Read the complete review

I rarely use any medication with my son, as to be honest he rarely needs it. I only tend to get it to him if he has a really bad cold and appears to be 'out of sorts'. I know that when I have a cold I tend to have a sore throat, ears, nose and headache so imagine that it is similar for babies and young children, who can not communicate with words yet. I know some parents who insist on Calpol with the slightest sniffle or whimper and some who have used it to settle their young babies at night. I would much rather not give my 14 month old any medication unless he really needs something. Back in the summer when we were going on holiday I wanted to get a few ... Read the complete review

Although I am more than aware that Calpol and other paracetamol based infant suspensions that contain paracetamol are exactly the same, I have to admit that I usually opt to purchase Calpol simply as a matter of habit! Its silly really because, as a paediatric and neonatal nurse, I am more than conscious of the fact that paracetamol is paracetamol and the brand is pretty much irrelevant. Obviously, buying brand versions of a medication are usually more expensive than buying a non-brand version - and so it makes sense to go for a non-brand version. With this in mind, last time my toddler had a flu / cold illness, I opted to buy a non-brand version of infant paracetamol ... Read the complete review
