  • Read the back of the Infent Tylenol bottle and it should tell you. If I remember right it's the smallest amount on the bottom of the dropper.

  • The doctor will tell you how much. There is no dosing info for kids under 2 on the label. I got this from the Tylenol website.

  • You can look dosages up online. My doc gave me a paper with the correct amounts for a childs weight when my son was born.

  • If it is infant Tylenol it has the dosage amount on the back of the box and it is based on weight.. Check first to make sure your box it not one of the recalled products.. If it is not INFANT Tylenol, please don't give it to your 4 month old without talking to the Dr first..

  • It goes on weight :) Up to 11lb is .4ml,....... 12 to 17lb is .8ml...... and 18 to 23lb is 1.2ml (.8ml plus .4ml).

  • Why do you want to medicate an infant? There are other things to do depending on the situation other than resorting to meds.

  • ONLY the amount that your pediatrician directs. This is based on weight, not age, and for good reason. Babies at that age are very different.

  • half of the dropper full

  • i was gonna also say half the dropper but your better off confirming it with your nurse/pediatrition or even just your pharmacist. an expert recommendation is only a phone call away.
