The Paracetamol Calpol Make No Mistake Campaign

Thursday, March 31, 2016

     I cannot count how many parenting mistakes I've done in the past years. My son will turn seven years old this year and I'm so happy and blessed to have raised a sweet, smart, and respectful child. I know we still have a long journey and there will be numerous mishaps along the way. It's a mother's instinct to worry so much when something is wrong with her child. I can say that my waterloo when it comes to my son's health is when he has fever.

     Here's a trivia: Would you believe that 20% of parents have forgotten their child’s birthday? The number is as high as 36% in other Southeast Asian countries. Right here in the Philippines, we have 1 in 2 parents admitting that they have fallen asleep while reading their kids a bedtime story. Has this happened to you? These are a few of the surprising findings uncovered by a recent global survey on parenting mistakes, conducted by Paracetamol Calpol®. See, it's okay to make parenting mistakes but there is one thing where mothers should make no mistake. Scroll down below to find out!

     Becoming a parent is a journey of trial and error, also known as the world’s most widely played game of improvisation. No amount of reading or preparation is going to save a first-time parent from a child left to their own devices. That’s often when the most amusing, albeit messy, mishaps happen. In fact, more than half of parents believe that they can’t take their eyes off their children, otherwise chaos would reign.

     Here are some of the parenting mistakes that happened to me more than once that I'm sure had happened to some mothers too:
  • When Kenzo started going to school, there were few instances that I overslept thus my son was thirty minutes to one hour late at school.
  • I also made a mistake of forgetting to pack his baon or snack.
  • I made him wear mismatched socks and sometimes let hum wear reverse shirt.
  • When Kenzo has fever, it's always a type of it-breaks-my-heart feeling to see and feel his temperature is high, like 38 degrees that will suddenly rise to 39 degrees at night. I had a mistake in giving the right amount of paracetamol as I already forgot the dosage that was prescribed to him  by his pediatrician.

     Since we're talking about our child's health here, giving the right dosage of medicine especially paracetamol is very important to ensure maximum effect and avoid side effects in the long run. One handy tip is to always consult a dosage calculator with your child’s latest weight in hand when giving medication.

     I'm surprised that when I received Paracetamol Calpol® bottles weeks ago, they had included a dosing wheel to help me give him the proper dose. Children come in all shapes and sizes, it’s not very accurate to dose them based on their age alone, which I've done a couple of times in the past :(

     Using their weight in the calculation makes it possible for medicine to work more effectively. A dosage calculator takes the guesswork away, making it one less thing to worry about. So to mommies out there, you can use the dosing wheel which you can find HERE. Feel free to share it with your family and friends. It’s a sure hit and an essential tool in caring for your sick child.

     I've shared a fun photo of my mishaps in my Instagram account to make other moms feel that they are not alone in their parenting boo-boos! I'm glad that Calpol and the dosing wheel will help me combat pain and fever. So next time that an unexpected fever arises, always remember that when it comes to pain and fever, make no mistake—Paracetamol Calpol is there for you.

  1. I'm excited to be a mom in the near future but at the same time I'm scared about making mistakes. That dosing wheel can be pretty helpful! :D


    1. Hi Gellie,

      Good luck! You can ask me if you have doubts or questions. I'll try my best to help you. Yes, it's really helpful kasi there are times that I forgot the exact dose lalo na if matagal na kami di nagpakita sa Pedia ni Ken.

Good Times!~
