Bottle is hopeless

The bottle containing liquid does not have a stopper fitted. It is a simple open top. When using the supplied syringe you cannot turn the bottle upside down as is normal for drawing liquid into syringe. It results in wastage of this overpriced liquid. The paracetamol obviously works but delivery system is hopeless. Better solutions elsewhere! Show details

I would not recommend this product

My bubba had a fever and I was advised to get this Panadol so I did, she took the littlest bit and literally projectile vomited 5 seconds later I tasted it and I don’t blame her!!! I had to go out again and I went with dymadol the strawberry flavour and thank goodness she took it and taste way better!! And I noticed on here that everyone else’s little ones also vomited should’ve read the reviews first Show details

Concur with most of the Reviewers here. This is medicine is NASTY and FOUL. AVOID

Both of my kids hate taking Panadol. If a 11months old baby makes that gags and vomit after taking this crap, you know it's foul. We switched to Dymadon and thank goodness for it.

Someone mentioned that the people at GSK probably don't have kids and I have to agree with that person.

Stay have been warned Show details

Dosing device is terrible

Dosing device is terrible, trying to give to my 6 week old and it shoots it into his mouth with such force he chokes and ends up spitting it out.
The flavour is so strong, that when you do get a few drops in his mouth he ends up vomiting it back up. Show details

Baby projectile vomits

My baby isn't a fan of the taste . He projectile vomited soon as he tasted the liquid. I did persist a few times, in case it was once off but nope. I even added it to his water and he drank it but threw up within the hour.
I tasted it myself and it's foul lol

Better off with Dymadon! Show details

causes vomiting

If you want your baby to vomit then try this stuff. She hardly vomited before trying this. After trying this she turned into a chunder volcano. We had cherry vanilla and it has a very strong flavour. Show details

Sooooo annoying

I just cannot stand the whole packaging of this it makes me so angry. FIX YOUR BLOODY BOTTLES! without a doubt everytime I use the baby Panadol the glass of the bottle is so light and fragile that it tips over so easily and within seconds you go from having a brand new packet of Panadol to nothing. I have a house full of sick kids and have had to reach for this multiple times but have already spilt 3 bottles today! Also how stupid is the dropper, I use the nurofen syringe instead it is so much better.
you need to either have a closing around the rim of the bottle the way nurofen does with the gravity system to avoid spillages or make the bottle taller and heavier glass, I don’t know you’re the smart ones figure it out. SO ANGRY!

Babies Panadol comes with a couple of different options a dropper and a syringe option. The syringe is quite small but is sufficient for babies. It's relatively easy to get into bubs mouth, there are a couple of flavours and this one bub began to like by the second bottle. It's not as cost effective as other brands but was certainly recommended by our local Doctor.  Show details

Works but awful taste

My 8 month old LO went to childcare for the first time and had high temperature the next day. I fed her favourite puree and then tried to give panadol. She instantly disliked the taste and puked all her stomach contents on me. Next dose I used Nurofen and she was all okay with it. The dropper worked fine. I wish the taste could be more flavourful. Show details

Lid is a nightmare

Our 2months old boy got headache and fever during a night. He screamed, screamed with the pain... Then I had to struggle to open Panadol lid for almost 20min. Imagine the situation! It was frustrating. Your baby needs to stop his pain and you have to fight with a crap packing! Oh Gosh Show details

Works as you would expect as paracetamol. However you would think no one at GlaxoSmithKline ever had a baby

The shape and size of the bottle is ridiculously small and the price much more expensive than regular panadol, not to mention the bottle is not designed to be used with a syringe, despite coming with on in the box. Most standard compounding pharmacies make up medications in bottles designed for syringe drawing. You can buy a cap to go inside for syringe drawing, but really for the price and the brand reputation you think you wouldn't have to think of this yourself. Clearly no one is thinking in the product development team at GSK. Show details

My baby chokes = bad taste

After tasting the infant Panadol what makes the company think an infant would like the taste? Horrible taste, horrible packaging and hate it when the Panadol leaks somehow. Please work on the flavour because the medicine itself is very affective except my son gets very uncomfortable while taking the medication. Show details

Works but unpleasant taste

Despite being a reliable brand of pain-relief and working well, I choose Dymadon over Panadol for my baby due to the unpleasant cherry taste of Panadol. Particularly an issue for baby prior to solids, as they are only used to the flavour of milk so the cherry is very strong and I struggled to get it into him. Show details

Dependable pharmaceutical from trusted brand

I naturally chose this as it’s the most well known children’s paracetamol product on the market. We’ve given this to our baby a few times since he was an infant (travelling, slight fever, post-medical appointments), and he has always reacted well to it. It’s been helpful during those times, and let’s him have a nice sleep afterwards. He doesn’t seem to hate the taste either. The applicator is straightforward to use. Would definitely recommend for the medicine cabinet. Show details
