In brief: 1/2 tsp - 2.5 ml
Infant drops are gone.
(yea! less dosing confusion, fewer overdoses.) children's Acetaminophen for all ages is 160 mg per 5 ml suspension. For an 11 lb. Baby, the dose is 2.5 ml (1/2 teaspoon). Be sure to use a measuring dropper; teaspoons are wiidly inaccurate.

Tylenol infant drops have been reformulated,the dose for 6 t0 11lbs baby is 40 mgm,in old formulation it was 0.4 ml,and in new formulation it is 1.25 m or quarter dropperful,12lbs to 17lbs is 2.5 mgm or half a dropperful,18to23 lbs is 3.75mgm or 3/4 dropperful and 24 to 35 lbs 5ml or 2 dropperful.You can repeat every 4 hours if needed,not to exceed 5 times in 24 hours.

In brief: By weight
The old infant tylenol (acetaminophen) is no longer to be made, so the standard will be 160mgm/5ml dose size, this means for an 11 lb baby, 2.
5 ml would be the upper limit dose.

In brief: 1.25 ml
The new concentration is 160 mg per 5 ml (1 tsp.
). The dose for an 11 lb. Baby is 40 mg, which is 1.25 ml of the new product. It should come with a dropper that shows 1.25 ml on it.

In brief: 0.4 ml
For babies up to 11 pounds, the dose of tylenol (acetaminophen) liquid is 0.
4 ml. If it comes with a dropper, this is usually marked on the dropper.
