tylenol dosage

Anyone know the dosage for infant tylenol for a 9lber? DD has a cold and now a cough. Kesser now has a low grade 99.6 and clear runny nose. I'll give the dr. a call when they open, but was just wonderinf if anyone else knew. I feel so bad for the little guy b/c we had a bad night last night with gas and now he just looks miserable.

chart from my peds office website

TYLENOL Infants Concentrated Drops: 80mg/0.8ml (Every 4 to 6 hours as needed)
WEIGHT (in pounds)
6 to 11 lbs
0 to 3 mos
1/2 (0.4ml)

Egan has that too, minus the fever. I feel so bad for having to suck his nose out all the time. Sad He's having a rough time sleeping at night too.

thanks! It's been nearly 5 years since I've had an infant and they've changed the formula, so I knew that even if I remembered it would be wrong. So far he doesn't totally freak out when I suction his nose. Abby was horrible. I would have to practically hold her in a headlock to get it near her nose.

From your Pumpkin Pie Pharmacist---
10 mg/kg is the dosing.... so 9 lb baby= 4 kg
40 mg every 4 to 6 hours or 0.4 ml

Good job, you guys were right on Smile
