Hi, my 2 year old has had a fever and the au air gave her calpol

Customer Question

Hi, my 2 year old has had a fever and the au air gave her calpol at 3pm. My mum-in-law took it upon herself to give my daughter another 5ml dose at 5pm without checking with me first! Should I be worried and is there anything I need to do?
She also had calpol ay 8am and neurofen at 12pm so obviously far too much medicine today but I was at work and the au pair did what she thought best
