The CALPOL® App makes it easy to keep track of medicine dosage for your child & has many other great features to help you take care of your child when they’re feeling ill.
DESIGNED FOR MUMS & DADS
We’ve all been there: struggling to remember what time we last gave our little one a dose of medicine. Or trying to look up a pharmacy address online with one hand whilst trying to comfort a poorly baby with the other.
The CALPOL® App has lots of handy features to help you look after your little one.
Everything is personalised to your little one’s age and gender, from products suggested, to upcoming immunisations. And the App will even read out our advice on illness symptoms and treatment tips when you’re too tired to read.
MEDICATION DOSAGE DIARY:
Helps you track the medicine you’re giving your child by recording the CALPOL® doses given throughout the day. You can also set reminders & push notifications to help you remember when to give your child their next dose of medication.
Helps you monitor your little one’s fever and track any changes in temperature.
CHILD IMMUNISATION SCHEDULE:
Keep track of your child’s immunisations with this easy-to-use tool which reflects the NHS vaccination schedule. Find out the recommended vaccination ages and set reminders/alerts, plus find out information about each vaccine and possible side effects.
SOOTHERS / LULLABIES:
Play calming and soothing lullabies from your phone to distract your little one after dosing and comfort them before the medicine takes effect.
ILLNESS SYMPTOM CHECKER:
Use the symptom checker to help you identify the different types of treatments and products available depending on what symptoms your child is currently showing.
FIND MY NEAREST PHARMACY OR HOSPITAL:
Easily find your nearest pharmacy or hospital using your phone’s map and current location settings.
Discover whole range of CALPOL® products suitable for your child according to their age and how they can help relieve symptoms of a cold, flu, fever, teething & more.

This is a great app to help you keep track of medication you have given and temperature. Can be used for more than one child. My only issue is that you can't select the time you record a temperature, like you can for medication. This would be very helpful as when you have a sick crying baby it's difficult enough to take the temperature, give medication and then settle them, so you it can be an hour later that you are recording the reading.
Downloaded a while ago but thankfully only had to use recently. Brilliant for tracking temperature of son when he had a fever and also of dosage and time of calpol. Customisable alerts so you know when to give next dose of calpol, if needed. Previous comments mention you can't input time of doses or temp readings but I have been able to do it so assume app has since been updated.
Like idea behind app, but would be better if could edit dosage, add additional medicines within a given dosage as some medicines can be given together/within intervals of a set period. For example I've been administrating Calpol and Ibrufen within two hour intervals but can only add one product as I've been told I already added a dose and therefore can't keep track of when I gave the 2nd med.
