Prob not necessary: Usually the parents have more discomfort than baby. Fewer drugs are better than more drugs. Cold teething rings are safe to use without relying on Tylenol (acetaminophen)

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.

My 2 month old baby got her needles and I bought Tylenol (acetaminophen) for infants how much dosage?

My 2 month old baby got her needles and I bought Tylenol (acetaminophen) for infants how much dosage?

What's baby's weight: Does is weight dependent. I would guess baby weighs about 8-10lbs. That is about 4 kg. Dose for tylenol (acetaminophen) is 16 mg/kg. So about 60 mg dose. Tylenol (acetaminophen) comes 160 mg per 5 ml so about 2 ml is dose.

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?

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.

What is the appropriate dose of infant tylenol (acetaminophen) to give to a 5 month old for fever?

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.

How much Tylenol should I give my 8ib 10oz infant? He just got circumcised.

How much Tylenol should I give my 8ib 10oz infant? He just got circumcised.

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.

How much infant tylenol (acetaminophen) can I give to my 17 lb 8 month old?

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.

Can you a baby infant Tylenol (acetaminophen) if they don't have any fever?

Can you a baby infant Tylenol (acetaminophen) if they don't have any fever?

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?

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.

Is it alright to give an 8mo infant tylenol (acetaminophen) syrup just once a day at nighttime for teething pain and crankiness? For how many days can it be given?

Try teething rings: One appropriate dose of Tylenol (acetaminophen) a day is probably not going to cause any harm, but you do not want to get the child used to taking an oral medication when it may not be needed. Try teething rings.

Can you give infant Tylenol (acetaminophen) to a baby if they don't have no fever?

Tylenol (acetaminophen): Why would give tylenol (acetaminophen) to a baby if there is no fever, unless if you know for sure that the baby is in pain for example from teething. Too much tylenol (acetaminophen) is not good for the liver. Good luck

Toddler's daycare administered infant tylenol (acetaminophen) without my consent. Is the drug safe?

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?

Infant with fever: For infants under two months, please consult your pediatrician. Fever can signal a dangerous infection. For older babies, fevers can help them fight off infection and need not be treated if the child is otherwise comfortable.

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

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.
