Ask health care prof: Please ask your pediatrician. Children's tylenol (acetaminophen) does not have dosage guidelines for infants that young... Infant tylenol (acetaminophen) drops allow for a lower volume dose and at 5kg and 2 months- i would not exceed 40 mg- but you really should talk to your pediatrician.

Tylenol (acetaminophen) dose: Tylenol (acetaminophen) dose for a 5 kg infant is between 50 to 75 mgs. It is safe to give your baby between the 1.25 and 1.875 ml lines. If your 2 mo baby has a fever, it would be best to consult the pediatrician as well to tule out any serious infection.
