  • Tylenol only for under 6 months. The doctor will tell you the correct dose at the appointment.

  • Tylenol is the only medication he can have at his age.
    Motrin and Ibufrofin are the same thing and he can't have that until 6 months

  • Tylenol. They actually recommed it until they are 1 now

  • We choose to selectively vax on a delayed schedule. First vax after first birthday, one vax per office visit, single dose preservative free vaccines, read the insert before allowing the shot to be given.
