Infant Tylenol Dosage Calculator
Is it safe to give an 8 month old baby Infant Tylenol (acetaminophen) every day during teething to help with teething pain & discomfort? Baby's weight is 18 lbs.
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?
My 2 month old baby got her needles and I bought Tylenol (acetaminophen) for infants how much dosage?
Tylenol (acetaminophen) dosage for infants. My son is 10 months old and about 25 lbs I think? I can't remember his exact weight.
My baby has a slight temp and her eyes are puffy and a bit red. We gave her the min dosage of infant tylenol (acetaminophen). Mother was slightly ill this week.?
Sounds as if: Your baby is also becoming ill. Infants under the age of two months with a rectal temperature of 100.4 or higher should be emergently evaluated and not given Tylenol (acetaminophen). Older infants and children can be offered supportive and comfort care with pain/fever reducers until they have been evaluated by their pediatrician.
For11 lb infant, infant tylenol (acetaminophen) (concentration 160 mg/5ml) dose, is the correct dose 60 mg which is 1.8 ml?
What is the appropriate dose of infant tylenol (acetaminophen) to give to a 5 month old for fever?
Dose by weight: The recommended dose range is 10-15 mg/ kg (2.2lb). There can be a wide range in weight at 5 mo. A 16 lb (7.3kg) kid would get 73-110 mg. You need to verify the concentration of the medicine you are using and work out the dose. It can be repeated after 4 hours.
I never do: A simple cool compress in the area is all I would ever use in a newborn circumcision. During the period from birth to 6-8 weeks we are leary of randomly using a med that would hide a fever. This period of time is when germs passed during birth may show up as blood poisoning & fever might be the only indicator.See 1 more doctor answer
Thanks for asking!: The dose is weight dependent. Average 2 months old is about 11-12 pound, the dose for that weight is 75 mg
80mg: The recommended dose for a infant is 10-15 mg/kg & your baby weighs about 8kg. I would start at 80mg. Many products that come in dropper bottles have lines on the dropper, the first line is usually 40 mg and the 2nd is 80.
For pain or fever: You can give Tylenol (acetaminophen) to anyone in the appropriate dose for weight whether or not they have fever. Pain from immunizations or teething would be examples of pain no fever. When giving Tylenol (acetaminophen), ask why you are giving the Tylenol (acetaminophen) and what is it you want to happen? If the baby is crying, 99 times out of 100 Tylenol (acetaminophen) is not going to help. As you already know, babies cry for a variety of reasons.
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.See 1 more doctor answer
My child has a fever he is 5 months he weighs 15 to 16 lbs can I give him tylenol (acetaminophen) for infant & how much can I give him?
Tylenol (acetaminophen) 160mg: You can give your child 2.5 ml every four hours for temp over101 degrees.
Toddler's daycare administered infant tylenol (acetaminophen) without my consent. Is the drug safe?
Yes, at proper doses: This med has been around for at lease 5 decades that I know of and is well tolerated by infants. The proper dos for size is well studied and on most produces. Like any good medicine, it is strong enough to do good, but used wrong, can do harm.
How long do you have to wait after taking tylenol (acetaminophen) to take ibprofrin to break an infants fever?
How much children's Advil can I give my 23 month old son? He is 28 pounds. Infant Advil and tylenol (acetaminophen) are not working
Why not working?: I hope you are using the pain/fever reducers for "comfort care" and not chasing numbers on the thermometer. Infant advil (ibuprofen) has the same ingredient as childrens only it is more concentrated. A maximum dose is: infant advil: 2.5ml every 8 hrs versus children's advil 5ml every 8 hrs. See your doctor if you find your son is not improving over time.
