Found these in SuperDrug today, thought they were really good as I am taking my little girl on holiday Wednesday and much easier than taking a bottle.
In SuperDrug the 12 packs of sachets are £2.39 so its even cheaper to get 20, think they are cheap than a bottle too!
Instore, not online :)

I always carry one of these in my bag! Personally, I have them in case I need them - I used two out of the last box before they ran out of date.

I agree that people use medicines rather too freely, but these are great for when the child has an extremely high temperature. I was away for Christmas and forgot to take some sachets with me - and I ended up in hospital on Christmas night with my 4 year old because I had nothing to bring his Fever down.

I would urge parents to read up, or speak to a pharmacist about which medicines to carry or give. Recently child cough syrup has been said to have no benefit at all to a child with a cold/cough. My Pharmacist said that Calpol and Nurofen are still OK to use - in the right circumstances of course!

Also great for hand luggage on holiday and come under the 50ml liquid guideline! Just make sure you put it in the clear plastic bag for hand luggage liquids!

Nurofen

Cobblers. Sachets are a very practical way of being prepared when away on holiday with little ones, like we will be shortly. I'd rather 'be prepared' and not use them, than be fussing around in a strange place, battling against a strange language, looking for pain relief for my children IF they should need it.

As far as I'm concerned, having some calpol (or any other sachet infant paracetemol) in our travel first aid kit is no different to having plasters, savlon, immodium, etc etc for ourselves. Surely it's more sensible to be prepared.

(Am admirably resisting the urge to be really rude.)

i always use these when my children have a high temperature or are obvioously in pain for teething etc, i always keep about 5 sachets of each calpol and nurofen in the changing bag (i have 2 children teething atm) also it is ideal for holidays, days out...

you aren't actually allowed by law to give the nursery medicine.

and

if you register with a pharmasist, if your child has problems they will give you it for free......
#14
Heat and rep, will need these when we go on hoilday.

What are you talking about?

aren't allowed to give nursery medicine??? Did anyone mention handing out calpol to nursery's?

If you register with a GP your child will be entitled to free prescriptions? Is this what you mean?
Tell me if it was the weekend and you had cold like symptoms would you 'sit it out' until monday so you could see your GP, or would you in the meantime take some paracetemol,lemsip,neurofen etc?

thanks op, will have to pick some up will be handy for on holiday as my son got 3 teeth coming through at the moment saves taking a big bottle with me. voted hot.

Why let kids suffer if they don't have to? The amount of times that my kids have been given calpol in hospital and been recommended to by drs is a lot...are they cavialier too? Sorry but that is quite a daft comment.

Someone here did mention it.

Nursery's are allowed to give prescribed medicine - providing a medicine administration form is completed on a daily basis.

Also at the discretion of the nursery manager other medications are allowed - again providing the form is completed again.

Saying that if a child was in your care having a severe allergic reaction, and you had an antihistimine to hand - would you not give it just because you hadn't got a permission slip to hand.

Or an Infant who's temperature was VERY high - would you not give calpol? Infants are more prone to Febrile Convulsions. SHould you just wait and see if it's OK?

I know medication can be dangerous and I don't give it slap dash, but I don't think things are as cut and dry as some might think.

I just went to my local (Holborn) and saw the price was still 3.56. :-(
The queue was too long to ask for a price check. I'll try later on.
#23
My local still had the normal price on the shelf. Had both kids with me so couldn't be bothered with the hassle of checking in the end.

Totally agree with this. We always have Calpol and Neurofen in the house but only use it for high temperatures or really bad teething.

However, I was told by a pharmacist (not sure if this is true or not) that the reason why the Night time Calpol is not allowed to be sold to parents with young babies anymore is because too many parents were using it every night to get their babies to sleep through the night. :shock:

Really good price by the way. Thanks OP. Will be having a look for some tomorrow.
#25
Really good idea and handy for holidays. My son had a febrile convulsion and it's scary, believe me. Ever since then always kept some handy, as with any medicine you just need to be sensible and follow the directions. You can get the generic liquid paracetamol 'free' but you can tell by your kids reaction it tastes horrible - and if they won't swallow it it won't work!!

Don't think this is national as in Southport they were normal price but they did have the 6+ Calpol (I think, it was in the red packaging) on offer for £1.99. :?

this is true, i know a few people who have done this, when i was having a rough time with ne of my boys, someone suggested to do this!!!! i was mortified, he wasnt ill, just defiant!... i beleive it is only for 6 years plus and that is for medised too!
#28
I got some today too, as i keep them in my bag too for the children, always handy when out and about.
#29
Fantastic deal, I dont have a Superdrug near me but I would be stocking up if I did. Great for when we are away from home.
I totally agree with all the comments, 99.9% of parents only give their children pain relief when they need it, and the other 0.1% are the ones needing help not their children.
