  • No you shouldn't. For 2 reasons... 1. you baby has to take the entire bottle to get the dose... and that doesn't always happen. And 2. if the baby doesn't like the taste of the Tylenol then they might stop eating the formula too.

  • It is not recommended because then you don't know exactly how much the baby is really getting.

  • You could, but I would not recommend it.  AmiJanell's post articulated why perfectly.

  • I wouldn't. Does your baby not like the Tylenol? My daughter thinks it's a treat when I give it to her. She always wants more. Maybe try a different flavor; they have grape, cherry, and I think one other one.
