  • To my knowledge, I have 5 children, you shouldn't be giving a 2month old anything without calling your doctor first. I'm not sure a pharmacist will even recommend anything. I know in the past the only thing my pedi will recommend for a very small child is pediacare.

  • when my daughter had her shots at 2 months the doctor gave me tylenol (it was also for the physical therapy she had to go through). you will have a .3 and a .6 on the dropper, the dosage is right in between those to spots. There is no marking for that spot. Call your doctor first and ask, please do not take my advice without asking the doctor first.

  • after my son's circumcision at 2 weeks old, the Pediatrician said to give him .6 on a .8 dropper, so in between the 4 and 8.

  • Now that i think of it, the .3 and .6 are the dosages on the mylicon drops. I think Tylenol is .4 and .8 and its in between that. The bottle is in my daughters room and she is asleep right now and I do not want to go in there and disturb her.
