  • Call your doctor. This is by weight.
    Never give your child anything without asking your doctor first.

  • Call and ask your doctor. Do not give it without speaking to a doctor or pharmacist.

  • Aren't there directions on the Tylenol package?

  • It's by weight. Google a dosing chart or call your doctor. Tylenol is not necessary though. My baby is 9 months old and I have never given her medications.

  • Whenever my son had his shots, his doctor always gave a sheet and listed on there was how much Tylenol to give if he needed it.

  • Before giving any medications always ask your doctor

  • Maybe don't give any medication and wait and see. It's a lot for a baby to take (the shots and the meds).

  • No. Even infant tylenol only has dosing instructions for kids over 2 years.
