My daughter had a throat infection and wouldnt eat either. keep offering her milk feeds throughout the day and offer yoghurt and fruit puree. once she starts to feel better she will eat, it just hurts too much at the minute. xx

You dumb mothers. You really believe that your dr. cares about your health and will not just push any new, dangerous drug on you and your kids? How many commercials have you seen "if you took ___ and experienced kidney faliure/heart attack/birth defects/death/etc, then you may be able to recieve financial compensation". The drugs dr prescribe are meant to mask symptoms and have not been studied for long term use, yet they will encourage you to use forever (asthma meds are a good example).
Take responsibility for you health AND especially your baby's. Use your brain and do some research on all the horrible things dr.s have prescribed and DONT let dentists put neuro-toxin mercury fillings in your kids mouths!!!!! Its sad i even have to say these things...

T H you are entitled to your opinion but, as I have said to plenty of people in the past, if you believe everything you read you wouldn't touch anything & would probably wind up in hospital being given all those drugs you're objecting to in order to keep you alive.
E.G. Do you know what is in the toothpaste you use to clean your teeth?
Do you know what is in the food you are eating every day?
Do you know what is in your health & beauty products (shampoo, bath oils, moisturisers, soaps)?
Do you know what is in the water you drink?
There are plenty of things in our day to day lives that we don't put too much thought to but when it comes to drugs/vaccinations suddenly it's all blown out of proportion & 'OMG, don't touch that!!!' Seriously, stop & think about it for a moment, what is better here - leaving your child to suffer with pain or providing them with relief? Each to their own opinion, it doesn't make anyone DUMB or STUPID for choosing what they feel best.

yes! please to always be sure and check the latest warning labels. but if your child is sick the best tool is always a humidifier, for any kind of sickness!

I was just googling harmful effects of ibuprofen because we are considering what to give to our daughter for teething, and came across this site.
I have suffered with a sensitive stomach for the last fifteen years, and have been advised never to take ibuprofen ever again, as after extensive medical research, it has been proven to be very bad for the stomach.
Because of this, I was sceptical about how good this would be for a five month old baby's stomach. However there seems to be very little negative press when it comes to babies, and yet when it comes to adults (simply google gastritis or stomach inflamation and NSAIDS), the negative information and study is abound.
Using even the littlest of common sense, I can only conclude that using ibuprofen is not a good thing for a baby's stomach, and that because it is a relatively new product for them, we are yet to hear the backlash, further, it might be that negative information is being stifled in the interest of big business.
I suggest you google stomach inflamation and ibuprofen (NSAIDS), before you make a decision to feed this to a baby.

And yet again 'Google' makes an appearance. Yes NSAIDs can cause stomach inflammation & ulcers with continued use (as it states upon the leaflets enclosed) but then why would you use NSAIDs continually? Most people only need to take ibuprofen for 3-4days to reduce swelling. Again you don't have to take the maximum dose but use it as & when you need to (I am prescribed NSAIDs for my joints).
For teething pain I wouldn't recommend ibuprofen but Calpol when needed. Bongela teething products work well & many people swear by Amber teething bracelets/necklets.
