Excellent

Effective, affordable, tastes nice

Not good if you prefer not to use drugs

Everyone knows how horrible it is to see a young baby or child unwell with a high temperature or mild pain. Of course you want to do everything you can to help with lots of love, cuddles and comforting but often this is not enough and you need a helping hand. This is when my good friend Calpol...

Calpol was always a lush medicine for me up until the age of 6 when I had to change medicines due to the fact that I had to go up one level in medicines and the next level taught me that medicines really do taste nasty. But now that my sister, aged three gets kidney infections, and has to have...

“Calpol - like a magic potion”

published 04/07/2011

Tastes great, value for money

none

There’s nothing worse than the children being ill. On a normal day, it’s easy to wish the kids would just sit down quietly and have a rest – as soon as this wish is granted by illness we’d give anything to have them back to normal! Unfortunately, as a parent you can-not take your child’s illness...

“A spoonful of Calpol.....”

very effective pain and fever relief

none

When you become a new parent, one of the worst things is when your child tells you that they are not feeling very well. It's even worse when they are babies and toddlers and you know they are poorly but they can't tell you where it hurts. This is why every new parent needs to know about Calpol...

Quite Expensive

Being the father of 5 children I am always dealing with every kind of minor ailment from headaches to teething and have been doing so on and off for the past 13 years so I consider myself a bit of an expert when it come's to children's ailments lol. The one product that I use on a regular basis...

milder than Vicks Vaporub

Smell doesn't last

(Please note that this review is about a product of CALPOL and not Calpol the medicine. Calpol is the brand name and this is an over the counter medicine, which is why the review is posted in this category. Thanks.) My son is prone to colds. He always has been, and this was a huge problem when he...

Works

Could be tempted to rely too much on it

Calpol is one of those products that isn't even on the radar unless you have children, and if you do have children (in fact probably as soon as you have your first baby), it becomes a bit of a Holy Grail. We all swear we won't dose our children with drugs at the first sign of discomfort or the...
