?? Why ??: This med is never given to infants that young.It can injure the kidneys. Beyond that, why are you giving a baby that young pain medication?If it has fever >100.4 it needs to go to the ER immediately. If you assume there is pain, consult with your pediatrician before giving anything, s/he may want you to bring baby in for an evaluation.Put those drops away until at least 6 months.
