It is safe to Use Panado alcohol and sugar free syrup for your 3 month infant. The dose is correct. Although Panado is safe to use for your baby, try not to use it every night. Continue to rub the teething gel on your baby's lower gums in the centre. Pansoral Gel is often very effective for teething discomfort and pain.
