I've went to give little one some calcough he's 8 months old but I've picked the larger seringe up instead of giving 4-5ml he's got 7-8ml I feel sick with worry
Any advice
Gave him a bottle and he seems fine just in shock I've mucked up

Pretty sure Calcough is just glycerine and something sweet. I don't think you can overdose on it, but if you're worried try 111.

Yup, found this: www.medicines.org.uk/emcmobile/medicine/23834#OVERDOSE

He'll be fine, it's literally glycerine and liquid sugar. To be honest cough medicines are a waste of time. Hope your little one is ok.
