Lindy, I think Kelly's right -- infant motrin.

Lindy I'm pretty sure she was talking about infant Motrin.

Does anyone know if the Motrin that Julie is talking about here is the Children's Motrin, or if it is Infant? I am snowed in, and Cailyn got her shots yesterday, and of course I am out of Tylenol. I have Children's Motrin, but don't want to give it to her if it isn't okay.

Julie - thank you so much for the information! I often refer to the Dr. Sears website or his book but I think your post was even more informative! :) I copied it and saved it to my computer.

I always struggle with dosing questions in the middle of the night...when the box says "consult a doctor". Well, it wasn't until recently that I realized that you can call an all night pharmacy to get this information. Just a tip to new mommies!

...and Drs cover themselves by not recommending it too. Lovely how lawyers run the world.

Since Motrin goes through the kidney - some kids have undiagnosed renal problems - so Motrin (ibuprofen) manufacturers didn't want to deal with this - so they only got FDA approval for 6 mos and up.

Technically then using ibuprofen for less than 6 mos old is "off label" usage.

Thanks Julie! I like motrin better but all I had was tylenol. But it did the trick. Even though I should of given him more because he is an 11 lb piggy!

Great advice though!! I was aware that you can take tylenol and motrin together. I did that with Zach when he had Roseolla. But to new moms that is great!!

Sarah you are right. .4ml in the dropper up to 11lbs. Then I believe you up it to .8ml in the dropper. Thanks girls!!

Matt hasn't had his shots yet, but I looked up Kaitlyn's shots paper from her first and I had written down that she could have to the 0.4 mark on the dropper of infant tylenol. She was 6 weeks old and 10 pounds. That was almost 4 years ago...but I wouldn't think it would change.

Nicolas had a shot today and I want to give him some tylenol. I forgot to ask the doctor. He is 11 lbs and 1 month. Does anyone know?
