Medicines information for parents and carers taking babies home with medicines

Giving medicines to babies

  • The Medicines for Children team are delighted to share a series of resources for parents and carers.  They provide information to support safe use of medicines for babies at home.
  • These resources were developed by parents and a collaboration of five hospitals across the UK and Ireland. The ‘PADDINGToN Study’ (Parent co-Designed Drug Information for parents and Guardians Taking Neonates home) was led by Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool and the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland.
