Does anyone know whether you can buy infant paracetemol - but not in a syrup form? My children will not take Calpol because they find it too sweet.

You can get powder sachets to add to water

Frankly, my two kids hate taking calpol (or any medicine) , and I don't kknow many kids who 'like' the taste, but if they have to take it they just do.

But is the powder paracetemol? And what is the brand? The only powder sachet I have found is ibuprufen rather than paracetemol and for kids older than 3 - not for babies?

You can buy soluble paracetamol - Disprol is one brand.
