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?
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
For pain or fever: You can give Tylenol (acetaminophen) to anyone in the appropriate dose for weight whether or not they have fever.

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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

At least 3 hours: Tylenol (acetaminophen) should be given every 4-6 hours and Ibuprofen every 6-8 hours.

If not improving, see the child's doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
