  • i would give the 8 mo old the dose at the smallest line and if that doesnt help within an hour give it again, same amnt. with the 27 month old, i would give twice that. i dont know EXACTLY my son is almost three but thats what i would do.... =]

  • My sheet says:
    4-11 months (12-17 lbs.) 1 dropperful
    12-23 months ( 18-23 lbs.) 1 1/2 dropperful
    2-3 years (24-35 lbs.) 2 dropperfuls

    can be given every 4 hours as needed but not to exceed 5 doses in 24 hours
