Calpol Infant Suspension

Advantagesnice taste, works well


"...a baby I always had Calpol in the house just in case, but thankfully it was seldom used.

Sanity Saving Calpol

"...a time like this that Calpol is a godsend.

A god send

AdvantagesIt works!


"Calpol is a pain relief for children. You can buy it as age six plus or from 2 months plus. It contains paracetamol and it's very important that you read the instructions and do not exceed the stated dose. I don't like having to use Calpol and only use it if I have to. I know some people like to use it as soon as their baby shows the first signs of teething or as a preventative before injections but I'm not one of those people! I try to only use ..." Read review
