I rely on Infants’ and Children’s Tylenol to help with my children’s fevers and when it was time for their shots I give them a dose before they got them, to ease the shot aftermath. Tylenol has been a product recommended by my family and friends, as well as my children’s Pediatrician, it has been a brand I have trusted in for years. When I heard about the new changes I was thrilled to be a part of getting the word out about these important enhancements’.
Tylenol and Consumer Healthcare Products Association worked closely to implement some enhancements’ to Infants’ and Children’s Tylenol products to take some of the guess work out of giving Infants’ and Children’s Tylenol to our children. The new Infants’ Tylenol will include a new bottle with a protective opening and push-in syringe which provides better dosing accuracy and ease of administrating to infants, it shall also reduce spillage and better control when dispensing. This new enhancement should reduce the risk of children being able to get to the medicine in the bottle.
Acetaminophen still remains as the active ingredient in Infants’ and Children’s Tylenol and you should always be sure to read and follow the dosing directions on the product that is being used. Please make sure you make yourself aware that both new and old products could be on the shelf when you make your next purchase; when you buy Infants’ and Children’s Tylenol products double check the dosage, because they have made some changes to how much should be given in a dose.

Helpful Tips for Giving Medicines to Infants and Children
Simply remember to NURSE:
- Never give adult medicines to children.
- Use the measuring device (syringe, dropper, dosage cup) that comes with the medicine every time you use it.
- Don’t use kitchen spoons (teaspoons or tablespoons).
- Read and follow instructions on the label. Never give more than the recommended dose and do not give the medication more frequently than recommended.
- Store all medicines out of the reach of children. Immediately following use, always restore the child resistant cap and put the medicine back into a high and out of sight location.
- Every child grows. Know the infant’s or child’s weight and/or age to help determine the appropriate dosage.
