For11 lb infant,  infant tylenol (acetaminophen) (concentration 160 mg/5ml) dose, is the correct dose 60 mg which is 1.8 ml ?

Baby weight is 26 pounds, tylenol (acetaminophen) 80 mg q6h prn ordered. How much tylenol (acetaminophen) should be given in one dose?

Baby weight is 26 pounds, tylenol (acetaminophen) 80 mg q6h prn ordered.  How much tylenol (acetaminophen) should be given in one dose?

That means 80mg/dose: A normal baby can take 6.8 mg of tylenol (acetaminophen) (acetominophen) per pound of body weight, in one dose. That means 6.8 mg x 26 pounds = 176.8 mg (but round down to 160 mg for simplicity). Tylenol (acetaminophen) is typically used for just 1-3 days. The baby's doctor may have recommended a smaller dose for some reason, as he knows the baby's details. ...Read more
