So teething can be a horrible time - and its an ongoing issue ...
So calprufen - which calpol and ibuprofen mixed works so well with my baby ... but my dad who is a doctor warns i should not be giving something like that to her
It is a baby suspension - but he stills says we shouldnt be giving babies medicines - just gels and cold rings.
Is there truth to this?
Do you turn to medicines - and if so, how often? Can there be long term harm?
I use herbal powder too - but not effective and for the 4am pain buster - baby only allows me to squeeze a pipette in with medicine - no way she'd open up for gel/powder!
Advice please please please!!!
