I've asked this before but calpol?

The last 3 nights ds has screamed a lot before bed which we put down to teething as he'd just cut two teeth and we gave him calpol and he slept a lot almost completely through the night. Last night, no screaming so no calpol and he's been up every two hours. Do you think the calpol gave him pain relief and let him sleep? Should I give it even if no screaming so we can all get some sleep. Thanks

I would, I always worked in the basis that tiny babies can't say what they need, so we have to min read a bit & adopted the "if in doubt" approach. I'd rather give it than risk them being in pain unnecessarily.

My DS is teething his last molars. I gave him calpol at 7, he slept until 11 (which is when it would wear off) then was up every hour until 5am when be wouldn't go back to sleep.... I definitely think it makes a difference! Give it if it helps. I'm trying Nurofen tonight, it lasts longer!

Thanks everyone. I'm destroyed today he was up loads and I am so grumpy when tired
