My doctor has also recomended it at various times. Hope this helps.
I have just started using nurofen for my little one.
I was reluctent to use it at first, but it dose do the trick. My bub had 4 molars coming down at the same time and nurofen seemed to be the only thing doing the job.
Good luck in your choices!

You can also safely give your bubs both panadol and nurofen at the same time. I've done this when he's been really unwell and haven't had a problem. I do tend to use nurofen more often, but mainly becuase the dropper is much better than the one in the panadol box!!!

Anyway, good luck.

I have not used it since, I only ever use Panadol.
Hope this helps other mums with babies with reflux.

If you use Nurofen (both children and adults), you should only take it after you have eaten or had a drink of milk as it can cause bleeding of the stomach lining and ulcers. Although this is really only likely if it is used often over a long period.
