Calpol for a 20 day old baby?
Hi, our LO has not been sleeping too well (12 hrs in last 48 hrs) due to colic/reflux. We have tried infacol and infant gaviscon without success for the colic/reflux. We went to the doctor this morning and he has prescribed Calpol. She is only 20 days only and weighs in at under 4kg (about 3.4kg). The Pharmacist said she should not be given Calpol as she is younger than 2 months and phoned to clarify whether it should be given. They eventually give us the Calpol but we are just concerned that this may not help and may have other side effects including potential long term effects. Has anyone else used Calpol particularly in v young babies? Any advice would be appreciated.
