Yes - as you can guess this is a blog about bottoms. I know, my blog posts have no reached an all time low.
Well actually it's about babies bottoms so that's a bit easier right?
When we first moved to France and had baby No 1, during teething, my lovely Medecin suggested paracetamol (Doliprane) in the form of suppositories. I squirmed and requested the strawberry flavour sirop. I was lucky No 1's first tooth was a sweet one.
With No 2 I struggled to administer the sirop, she wore most of it and I'm sure it's not effective when externally applied! Many a wet wipe were used trying to clean up after the goo was rejected by the tiny tongue creating a sticky pink face, dribbling onto the neck, down their backs and all over their clothes. So I finally decided to try the suppositories (recommended for babies under 1). After a couple of aborted attempts I was able to administer these and wow - it was a lot easier than I'd thought. No more messing about, these were the way forwards...onwards & upwards so to speak!
So when No 3 arrived there was no messing around with liquid Calpol or Doliprane, I brought a small supply of suppo's over to the UK with me. A good job since she won't even take her Vitamin D drops (which taste delicious like Orange Oil). However after a few nights and days teething plus a couple of previous incidents I've only got 1 suppo left.
I looked online at Boots.com and they don't seem to sell the Suppo paracetamol - so here is a question about the UK for a change - does anyone know if you can get paracetamol in suppository over the counter or do I need to see a Dr for a prescription?
