  • My bottle says 1ml.
    I always do a bit less than it says though.

  • It really depends on the weight. At 6 months my dd was 'old enough' to have the .8 ml.......but she wasn't heavy enough to have it. once they get over 12 lbs....they can have .8 ml

  • I would give her the 0.8 ML being 19 pounds. I would wait until the 6 hours if not longer to give her anymore though. Too much Tylenol is bad for even adults. It can cause serious liver and kidney problems if given more than directed. I hope your baby feels better!

  • A 19 lb baby would get 0.8- 1.2 ml
