  • One dropper full. If you buy the infant kind, it has a dosage chart. Do NOT give her any other mind other than INFANT tylenol, it is mixed just for that age group. Do NOT exceed more than every 6 hours, because tylenol can cause renal damage. Motrin is better and safer.

  • My son is 8 months old also and his doctor said to give him a dropper and a half since he was 6 months old.

  • if her gums are swollen you might want to try motrin.
    my sons doctor said it would be ok to give the recommended
    dosage of tylenol with it if the baby is running a slight
    fever with the teething. but i would make sure to keep the
    dosages on schedual and not too close together.

  • Buy INFANT tylenol & go by your child's weight, NOT age. I think it's 1 dropper full... or 1.875 mL, I THINK. Ask your doctor if you can give her ibuprofen yet... it's safer, PLUS ibuprofen is an anti-inflammatory that will help with the swollen gums... Tylenol doesn't help with that.
