11 days postop tonsillectomy, I am 55. How many tsp of. Children's tylenol (acetaminophen) can I take?

What is the right doses of childrens tylenol (acetaminophen) and/or Advil for a 9 months, 20 pounds baby?

Always divide the weight in pounds by 2.2 tylenol (acetaminophen) dose is 15 x 9=135mg every 4 hours. It usually comes in 80mg per tsp. A tsp is 5 ml. So 1 ml would be 20mg, so 8 1/2 ml would be 135mg. Ibuprofen is 5 x9=45mg every 6 hours. It comes in 100mg per 5ml so each ml is 20mg so 45mg would be 2 1/4 ml. ...Read more
