22 November, 2011. posted in Everyday, Policies and Procedures.

We have been given new guidance as to the dosage of Paracetamol based medicines that we can administer to children. Our policy will reflect these changes immediately.

Please see below the new doses we will be allowed to administer at nursery.

Old doses

New Doses

2-3 months 2.5ml can repeat 4-6hrs later. Do not exceed 2 doses 2-3 months 2.5ml can repeat 4-6hrs later. Do not exceed 2 doses
3-12 months 2.5-5ml up to 4 times a day 3-6 months 2.5ml up to 4 times a day
