It has age range down to 3mths on it so I assume you can give it younger than 5 as long as it's the correct dose. Might be better for you, costs more initially though but would work out the same with the lesser dose. DS is recovering from surgery atm and is having paracetamol and nurofen around the clock so that's why it's bugging me right now.
    Yes I use the 2-5 years nurofen on my 14 month old dd as it lists the dose on the bottle (seems silly to have seperate bottles for each) so I will check out the 5-12 year bottle instead, esp as it's a higher concentrate. Thanks for the tip!

    Default Annoying Nurofen dispenser

    The stuff is just too thick to be able to drink quickly (essential for young children), and impossible to drink it all, as it gets all stuck to the sides and does not come out easily, so there's still a large amount left. Easier and more accurate to just squirt in a syringe!
    Even at my work when we dispense medications we now use syringes instead of cups unless it's over 20mls as it's more accurate

    ETA: sorry, @WiseOldOwl just beat me to it lol

    Because if it's a small dose it's really hard to measure accurately in something that goes in 2.5ml increments and in littlies small overdoses can have a big impact.

    Is that a mistake? I have a 44 kilo 12 year old and he's huge! Could she take a tablet then?

    I had a look at the chemist today. They have one with 5ml doses and one with 10ml. The 10ml ones were harder to find (obscure spot).

    They are in the medical aids section.
