My baby is eight months old and weighs twenty pounds. I was wondering what dosage of Infant Tylenol (acetaminophen) I should be giving her in milliliters?

4.3 ml: It is better to use a milliliter dropper in order to be more precise. You can dose tylenol (acetaminophen) up to 15 mg/kg. 20 lbs is about 9 kg so you can give about 130-140 mg based on weight which is about 4.3 ml by mouth. ...Read more

Infant age 1 fever n gave panadol (acetaminophen) , fever went off last for 2hr . Fever came back again n gave panadol (acetaminophen) n it also last for another 2 hrs. So now worry.

expected pattern: A child with a fever producing illness will run that fever in some pattern until the illness is gone.This would seldom be less than a few days. Acetaminophen is expected to suppress the fever by a degree or so while it is in the system, but it does not "fix" the illness. If the kid fails to drink well enough to void every 6 hours, refuses to play, or other bothersome symptoms, have it evaluated. ...Read more

My 2 month old weighs 14lbs 9oz what is the right amount of infant tylenol (acetaminophen) i can give him in ml?

Al little young: While infant tylenol (acetaminophen) is not recommended by the manufacturer until 2 years of age it is used and if so the dose in millilitres for the weight you have given is a total of 9 ml in divided doses over 24 hours. That is a very conservative dose so check with the child's pediatrician. Tylenol (acetaminophen) should always be based on weight and not age in children. ...Read more

For11 lb infant,  infant tylenol (acetaminophen) (concentration 160 mg/5ml) dose, is the correct dose 60 mg which is 1.8 ml ?

That is ok: 60mg is fine for that weight, but it's easier to use 2.0ml (64mg). An 11lb baby can take 75mg per dose, but parents should not use tylenol (acetaminophen) on a young baby unless the doctor already knows about the symptoms and has agreed that tylenol (acetaminophen) should be used. ...Read more
