If you have a little person in your life, the chances are that you're already well acquainted with Calprofen. It's an indispensable part of many parents' lives and medicine cupboards and you can stock up on it now at Asda, with 12 x 5ml sachets for £1.
Suitable for babies aged 3 months and over, Calprofen is a strawberry flavoured Ibuprofen Suspension for babies and children. It is used for the relief of pain from teething and toothache, headache, symptoms of cold and influenza, sore throat, minor muscular pain and aches. It can also be used for the reduction of temperature and post-immunisation fever. Calprofen is colour and sugar free and could be used to treat children up to the age of 12 years.
I think these little travel pouches of medicine are absolutely brilliant and I've lost count of the number of times I've breathed a sigh of relief at the sight of one lurking in my nappy bag in the middle of a teething nightmare.
Even now I tend not to leave the house without three things: a packet of baby wipes, emergency snacks and a sachet of medicine. If you're expecting a little one I recommend nabbing these while you can - they're the sort of thing you'll be glad to have to hand once the teething fury starts!
