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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have a 2 month old who weights 8lb 8 oz how much infant tylenol (acetaminophen) should I give her?
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?
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. ...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 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

How long do you have to wait after taking tylenol (acetaminophen) to take ibprofrin to break an infants fever?
At least 3 hours: Tylenol (acetaminophen) should be given every 4-6 hours and Ibuprofen every 6-8 hours. For fevers that are particularly difficult to reduce--fever itself does not cause brain damage, except to the anxious parents, except if very high (106-107) for a prolonged period--one could alternate the two every 3 hours for a short period (ie 12 hours of time). If not improving, see the child's doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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

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. ...Read more
14month old son.What temperature means fever?What to do immediately when fever?Give infant Tylenol (acetaminophen) or something?Pl suggest.
Take a breath: For most healthy children, I consider 101 to be a fever. For tiny or sick babies it's different. Take a breath and immediately take a good look at your son. Is he breathing usually/comfortably? Is he drinking fluids and having wet diapers? Fever is a defense mechanism which helps your body fight infections by making it less hospitable. Tylenol (acetaminophen) can lower fever, but isn't always needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
