Parenting Mishaps and Children's Medicine: Make No Mistake!

Baby package

        When a child is born, especially when it's the first born, a parent is born too. The baby is clueless, innocent. And in that moment you realize that you have no idea how to really take care and raise a child. Babies don't come in a package with an instruction guide. I don't know about you, but in my case, as a parent, I have no idea what I'm doing. And you will need all the emotional support you can get. Mistakes will happen. There is no perfect parent.

        For one, like other moms, I don't cook. I mean I probably could if I really wanted to. But it's really just not my interest. This is why we hired a all-around maid who can cook for us. When Rain was still a baby, I learned how to cook Arroz Caldo so it's something Baby Rain could eat easily. In fact I even made a post about it. Ideally, when you cook for babies, you use as much fresh ingredients as you can. But dummy me didn't know how to make chicken stock. I tried. And it burnt. Can you believe that? After the first failed attempt, I didn't try again. I wish I took a photo of that burnt chicken stock. So anyway I ended up using chicken cubes.

        We all try to be the best that we can be. And most of the time we just follow our instincts. Or we wing it. But when it comes to your kid being sick, we can't afford to just wing it. There's no room for error when it comes to giving your kid the proper medication. That's why we have to try to know as much as we can in giving the right medicine for our child.

        When I hear Ibuprofen and Paracetamol, all that comes to my mind is that they both help ease fever and pain. Turns out that's not exactly correct. I recently found out that Ibuprofen-based children's medicine when taken could have different side effects such as nausea, upset stomach , and diarrhea. These side effects occur most especially when children are suffering from other conditions such as dehydration or dengue. And Paracetamol, on the other hand, has fewer potential side effects (when used as directed).

Paracetamol Calpol

        Needless to say, when it comes to kids, Paracetamol is the better choice. Which is why more healthcare experts recommend Paracetamol for children's fever and pain. And Paracetamol is the active ingredient in Calpol.

        Paracetamol Calpol can be trusted for your kids when it comes to pain relief and fever associated with:

sore throat
muscle ache
cold and flu symptoms

        Just the week, Rain and I went under the weather. Probably from the scorching heat of the summer, and in Rain's case, from all the non-stop swimming over the weekend. It's hard seeing our kids get sick. And honestly, it's even harder to take care of a sick child when I myself can't function properly. I took her to the pedia where the doctor confirmed her tonsils are inflamed. And while we were there, I thought it would be best to have the pedia take a peek at my throat too. Yes, I went to the pedia for a check up. Hahahaha! Anyway long story short, Rain and I were both prescribed with antibiotics for the throat, and  paracetamol in case the fever comes back. So far, Calpol has worked very well!

        Calpol has a variety of formulation fit for different ages. From infant drops to 2-6 years olds which comes in 2 flavors: Orange and Strawberry. Calpol is a fast and effective way to relieve your children from pain and fever.

        So the next time your parenting skills fail you, remember that you're not alone. But do remember that when it comes to your child's medication, MAKE NO MISTAKE! Always consult your child's Pedia first! Of all the things, our child's wellness is something we can never ever risk.
