To make under 6yo Calpol as effective as 6+ Calpol for an 8yo, do I just double the dose?

Am packing for holiday & don't want to take 2 different bottles of Calpol. <6yo Calpol has 120 thingummies per 5ml, while 6+ has 250. By my reckoning that means I can give DS1 double the dose of 'baby' calpol? Am I right?

I'm safeguarding against swine flu plus DS1 could possibly develop an infection in his tooth while we're away (I've also got some antibiotics on the dentist's recommendation).
