    I've noticed a lot of people do this but I can't seem to find anywhere on it stating that it should be in the fridge.

    I've always kept it in the cupboard.

    I keep it in the cupboard, I should think it would crystallise in the fridge?

    Some medications are meant to be kept in the fridge but the instructions always tell you this. Over the counter stuff isn't usually needed to be refrigerated, it's certain antibiotics and I think insulin etc.

    I guess maybe people do this because it's cooler if giving for teething? Or maybe it's the safest place the kids can't reach in their house? Maybe it's just because some people prefer to put stuff in the fridge if they're unsure.

    I keep it in the fridge. If DS has a fever then he is more likely to take it if it's cool. It doesn't crystalise in the fridge as long as the lid is on properly, same as in a cupboard.

    I've never thought to put it in the fridge either, only medicine we've ever kept in there is antibiotics which stated that in the instructions.
