  • I'll give Tylenol or Motrin if he has a fever high enough to be making him feel badly. Oh, and once or twice for teeth. My son is not quite 3 and there is nothing available that is still labeled for little dudes. I'll run a vaporizer in his room most of the winter, too.

  • If she needs it... tylenol and advil for fevers and benedryl if her allergies are keeping her up at night. Not much else though.
