In brief: Don't alternate

I don't recommend that you alternate antipyrectics like tylenol (acetaminophen) and advil.
There is too great of a risk of accidentally overdosing one of the medications. It is better to dose the medications based specifically upon your child's weight. Your pediatrician can calculate a dosage range based upon weight. (this is often different that what you see on the bottle).
