Nurofen for Children
Pain is the body’s way of telling us that something, somewhere needs our attention. But kids can’t always tell us clearly what’s hurting, especially when they’re very young. Plus, everyone has their own pain threshold – some higher than others.
Nurofen for Children has been specifically designed to provide fast and effective relief for babies and children from three months. It relieves fever for up to eight hours*, and starts to work within 15 minutes**. It contains no sugar or colours, so you don’t have to worry about its effect on your child’s teeth. And it comes in flavours your kids will actually like – orange or strawberry.
Since every child experiences and reacts to pain differently, being able to identify pain in your baby or toddler will be a learning process that will be unique to you and your little one.
It’ll be easier to tell when your toddler is in pain when he can talk, even if he can’t explain in detail what’s hurting. It’s also common for toddlers to clutch the part of their body that’s causing them pain. For example, pulling ears is often a sign that a child has earache; holding or patting his head can be a child’s way of signalling he has a headache.
Teething is one of the most common causes of pain for babies aged four to six months. Your baby may dribble more than usual, have flushed cheeks, rub his gums, wake up more than usual and have loose bowel movements. Nurofen for Children’s anti-inflammatory properties can give your baby fast relief from teething pain, and may help him get his much-needed sleep. The straightforward dosage syringe makes it easy to give the right dose for your baby.
Life is a magical journey for kids, full of adventure and fun, so don’t let pain and illness spoil it!
