Angiers Junior Aspirin

Woman's Weekly / 26th March 1965

Blimey Nora. Somehow, I don’t think there was an equivalent advert in Playboy questioning men’s fatherhood skills. Despite the wider range of men’s magazines available nowadays, there still aren’t, but women are still fed a good spoonful of guilt in adverts aimed at them. Why do we put up with it?

“Rubbing baby’s gums with *your* finger is out…”

Um… why? Are they casting aspersions on the cleanliness of readers hands or something? I remember rubbing teething gel on Tom’s gums when he was a baby and he survived it!

I think they’re playing the ‘medical’ card, as the fear of germs was ramped up during the ’50s. Whilst germ management is perfectly sensible, the advertisers are talking a load of old bollocks here. I should think clean hands are good enough!

If you gave baby this, you were a TERRIBLE mother! Asprin is deadly for children

(goddamn wikipedia blackout, will find alternative source)

shouldn’t give children under 2 asprin as it may cause Reyes syndrome

“Reye’s (Ryes) syndrome is a rare but serious condition that causes swelling in the liver and brain. Reye’s syndrome most often affects children and teenagers recovering from a viral infection and who may also have a metabolic disorder. Signs and symptoms such as confusion, seizures and loss of consciousness require emergency treatment. Early diagnosis and treatment of Reye’s syndrome can save a child’s life.”
