Q.

Too much panado?

My 11 month old son is busy teething. He already have his 2 bottom tooth that came out with no problems at all - no fever and no teething nappies. Now, he is busy with his 1st top front tooth. He does have fever but not constantly. Now my husband want to give him 5ml panado every single night before he go to bed just for " in case"  he does not feel good during the night ever since he started teething. I again feel that we should not give him too much if it is not necessary and I' m scared that it will make him immune against the panado. Is it harmful to give him 5ml panado every single night for just in case??

Pando is safe but there does not seem to be good reason to give your baby any medicine unless he needs it.
