Just wondering what your doc says. I was told today by a doctor to give Motrin, then 3 hours later give Tylenol, then 3 hours later give Motrin again, etc etc, as needed to control Felipe's fever. Then I was told by two different nurses NOT to do this. What have you been told lately?

sunshine58103, the idea here is that each dose of Motrin would still be 6 hours after the last dose of Motrin; and each dose of Tylenol would still be six hours after the last dose of Tylenol; but you're alternating them, so the child gets a dose of one or the other every three hours. Does that make sense?
