December Jollities

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

Once again, Chiggs Wheels stockists are out and about in the run up to Christmas, and here are some more festive events.

Friday 2nd December, Hello Baby Gifts will be at the Pavilions in the Park, Hurst road, Horsham, West Sussex

Piglet’s Boutique will be selling their lovely gifts for little ones at a  Christmas Fair in Hull at the David Lloyd Leisure Centre on Saturday the 3rd of December (10am til 4pm)

Durham City’s traditional Christmas Festival is on Friday 2nd December: 10am – 6pm, Saturday 3rd December: 9am – 5pm and Sunday 4th December: 10am – 4:30pm. There is huge craft and gift marquee on Palace Green featuring over 180 stalls selling a wide variety of Christmas gift ideas, and Little Pjs will be selling their lovely nightwear and gifts including Chiggs Wheels, (perfect gifts for parents of December babies!) for the 3 days of the festival.

On the 11th of December, Lulabells will be at Cockermouth Market, in Cumbria with their lovely selection of gifts.

And the 15th of December is the 6th birthday of Chiggs! We’re not sure what the celebrations will involve- mainly cake and jelly, I suspect- so watch this space 🙂

‘Right dose, right time’ – changes to Paracetamol dose guidelines for babies and children

Monday, November 21st, 2011

Children’s medicines are in the news again today, as a report on the Telegraph website says that parents should be cutting down on the doses of Paracetamol, such as Calpol, they give young children.

Until recently guidelines on bottles of childrens medicines suggested the same dose for children aged from 12 months to six years. The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has now revised these recommendations, saying that with the “very wide age bands …younger children may have received a dose of paracetamol that was higher than necessary”.

The MHRA suggested that dosing be split into tighter age bands, reflecting the differences in weight and bodily development between a one-year-old baby and a six-year-old child, and given new recommended doses for children aged between 2 and 4. Doses have also been altered for babies, and the new guidelines have been incorporated on product packaging.

Chiggs recommends that for real peace of mind, parents also make sure they have a Baby Medicine Wheel or a Get Well Wheel close at hand. When the medicine is given (in the correct new dose of course!) parents can turn the dial to make a note of the time, and that way they can give the right dose of medicine, at the right time!
