Tylenol’s company website provided dosage recommendations when giving Tylenol Infant Drops to children between the ages of 2 and 3 years. For children this age that weigh between 24 and 35 lbs., give 1.6 ml every four hours, limiting the medication to no more than five doses in a 24-hour period. Use the dropper enclosed with the bottle of Tylenol Infant Drops to provide accurate measurements. Release the medication in the dropper into your child’s mouth near his inner cheek. Don’t give Tylenol Infant Drops to children under the age of 2 years, without first obtaining your doctor’s approval.
That won't be the case with McNeil and Infants' Concentrated Tylenol Drops. McNeil all lots of more than 40 formulations of its children's and infants' allergy and pain relief products -- including Tylenol products -- in April 2010 because of manufacturing deficiencies that could affect the products' quality, purity or potency. The company said in its recent letter to health care professionals that Tylenol infant drops are not expected to return to the market before fall.
I am not too impressed with the Tylenol Infants Drops. This was first purchased for my grand-daughter after she got her first set of immunizations. After giving her the pediatrician recommended dosage, she projectile puked everywhere! At first I thought it might have been her tummy, so I waited until the next dosage was needed and tried again. She ended up puking again! A few days later, my daughter called me and said that she gave her the Tylenol Infants Drops in the car seat and she did just fine! So, we got to thinking about it and have concluded that you need to hold baby completely upright when giving her the Tylenol Infants Drops and you also needed to wait a few seconds to ensure that it is completely swallowed, otherwise the thick medicine sits in their throat and causes them to puke! In addition, my daughter went online and found several different mommy forums filled with parents complaining about how Tylenol Infants Drops makes their little ones puke! I wouldn't recommend this to anyone, however, Infants Tylenol is very helpful for minor aches and pains or fevers.
