Calpol and very smelly nappies

Whenever we have to give our 3 year old a dose of Calpol he has the foulest poo. Does it mean that Calpol doesn't agree with him and isn't going to work?

It will still work....but yeah, your Baby's tummy is a bit upset by it, I suppose....but if it doesn't cause discomfort I wouldn't worry about it, iykwim

Okay. He doesn't have it often but DH commented how it always seems to effect him in this way and it made me wonder if it was doing more harm than good.

You coiuld always try a different form of liquid parecetamol. Chemists ususally have different brands available.

I can't give my DD Calpol. She's allergic to strawberries. Even the strawberry flavour in Calpol gives her Hives.
