11 week old had 2 month shot. Doc said give tylenol for pain and fever. Can i give her infant motrin also. Since I have some all ready have some.

My baby is 5 months and 3 weeks old and just started teething. My parents said don't use motrin because its dangerous. Is this true?
7 months old baby with a bad runny nose how to get rid of that bc she can't breath bc of the snuffed and I gave her a few drops of motrin, hummifier in the room and vick rub. Any other idea? Please help. Its only been 2-3up days
Stop the rub: I consider the vick's rub an air pollutant when used in infants. It can prolong or worsen congestion. A liberal wash out of her nose with saline can remove some of the irritants & thin out the mucous. Sometimes you must wash out the nose using saline like a garden hose to be effective. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Baby motrin or baby tylenol? From a doctors standpoint, is one more effective than the other and does one have a higher risk? 6mo teething baby.
Both are good: Tylenol has fewer reported complications so may be a bit 'safer' but Motrin is going to be more effective in reducing a fever. For a non-fever minor pain situation like teething, i'd use tylenol first but if that doesn't help Motrin would be most likely fine assuming you are carefully observing dosing recommendations. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My baby is diagnosis with herpangina. His fever runs 102-103. Should I wake him to give him another dose of Motrin? His temp is rising again and he's hot
Depends: If your baby is prone to seizures due to fever, absolutely wake him. Motrin doses should be 6 hours apart at least. Other options include cool compresses, tepid (NOT COLD) bath, and being careful not to overdress him. If you want to give him medication to bring the fever down, but it's too early for the next dose of motrin, a dose of tylenol in between can help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had a 6lbs 7.5oz baby 4 days ago & had a 2nd° tear. The Motrin isnt helping + I'm breast feedin.Other options? How long will it take to totally heal?
Birth injury: It is very common to have a vaginal tear with delivery. We commonly prescribe narcotics in the US for pain control for this injury even in breast feeding women. It usually takes 3-6 weeks for this to heal if it is repaired adequately, longer if it is left to heal on its own. Other options include sits baths, ice, local heat, and topical anesthetics. ...Read more
