Children’s medication and Baby Health | Life Pharmacy

Children experience pain just like adults, but they're not always able to tell you how they feel. They may be unusually quiet, crying without obvious cause, feel hot to touch, pulling at an ear (think ear ache), more irritable or anxious than usual, or not eating or sleeping as usual.

If you think your baby or child is in pain or sick, you may be able to bring them relief with a specialised children’s medication such as Pamol or Gaviscon Infant. It is important when calculating the dose of a medication for a baby or child that the dose is accurate for the age, weight, and health needs of the bay or child. Babies and children cannot take adult medications and it’s very important that you check when you should and should not use medication for your child. See your local pharmacist at Life Pharmacy for advice on children’s medication.
