I have used this medicine for all my babies Jabs. I used it every six hours for 2 days with his first and third lot of jabs. He has been well with all three lots of jabs and did not get a temperature. I would recommend this medicine.

I use this along side nurofen usually. It does seem to help for teething although I do give teething powders as well

I very rarely use calpol, only using it when my children have had fevers or are in a lot of pain and nothing else will settle them. My children are quite happy to take it, it is very easy to use and understand. It has so far been very effective and has been fast acting for both my children.

Comes with an easy to read syringe which is a good size to handle and use and doesn't upset little one either. Trying really hard not to overuse, 2.5ml seems to keep temperature at bay after injections and with chicken pox even though little one is old enough for 5ml.
