I have 17 month old twins.....My ds is 24 pounds......For about 8 months now our ped. says that he is a big boy and to give him 1 tsp of inants motrin (5ml). Now on the bottle it says up to 23 pounds or 2 yrs should have 1.875. 5ml is 2.5 times that amount. The first time he said that I got home and thought I had heard wrong...but the next two times we were there he said the same thing. I still haven't given him 5ml because it seems like so much. I did give him 4ml once and was worried all night that I had drugged him. No, the 1.875 doesn't seem to help him much during teething but I don't want to give him too much.....and between him and his sister.....if he got 5ml each time, those bottles would be gone in less than a day and they are expensive....has anyone else been told to give that much to their toddler and is it safe?
