How I learned to give baby Tylenol

Posted by Alina on Saturday Jun 21, 2008 Under baby safety

As a reaction to his first immunization shots, at 2 months of age, our son developed a fever. The pediatrician recommended baby tylenol. My husband picked up some pink, cherry flavored baby tylenol which comes in liquid form with a dropper and when we tried to give it to our son, it ended up all over his shirt. Babies tend to use their tongue (reflexively) to push things that go into their mouths, out. The trick as we learned, is to place the tip of the dropper into the cheek on one side of the baby’s mouth and squeeze a couple of drops. Wait till he swallows, and then do it again.
