Recommended Dosages
The proper dosage for your child is based on weight, not age. If you don't know how much your child weighs, and he's too young to stand on a scale himself, weigh yourself
while holding him, and then weigh yourself alone. Subtract your weight from the combined weight to get his current weight.

5 Safety Tips for Ibuprofen

1. Don’t give it to a baby under 6 months without a doctor’s approval. 2. Always use the measuring device that comes with the medicine – not a spoon from the kitchen. 3. Never give to a child who's taking other medicines unless directed by a doctor. The other medicine may also contain ibuprofen, creating a dangerous overdose. 4. Don't confuse infant drops with children's liquid. Infant drops are much more concentrated. Hint: Drops come with a dropper; children's liquid doesn't. 5. You can repeat the dose every six to eight hours. Don't exceed four doses in 24 hours.
