I called DD's ped today and his nurse recommended baby Tylenol, but it says on the box to read the new warning label. After doing a bit of research, I'm hesitant to give it to her. She's unvax'ed, EBF, and this is the first time she's been sick. She's been eating and sleeping all day, but I'm worried about her She's really low energy compared to normal, and seems to be in pain. Maybe a sore throat?

So, what would you do?

My 8 month old was really sick a couple of weeks ago. She was miserable. I followed the chart on the Dr. Sears website and did Tylenol and Motrin for her and it helped us get some sleep. So if it were me, I'd medicate if my baby seemed to feel really bad.

My DD had a cold just recently and I hated to see her in pain. I gave her Tylenol.
