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.

14month old son. What temperature means fever? What to do immediately when fever? Give infant Tylenol (acetaminophen) or something? Pl suggest.

Please see below. Different people have different definitions of what constitutes fever. If his temperature is between 99.5-101, I would call it a low grade fever. If he's happy, you don't have to give him Tylenol (acetaminophen). If he's cranky or in pain, then give it. If his temp is 102+, it's reasonable to see the Dr. to make sure it's not more than a virus. Offer plenty of healthy liquids to him. Read more...
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 more...
