1.2 ml. I will probably get flamed for telling you that. : Maybe try half a dose first? When I take Tylenol (for myself) I take a half dose and it seems to work well for me.

Dosages are different depending upon whether you have infant or childrens' formula, because the infant formula is more concentrated.

You'll need to read the package.

I do a half dose of what the infant drops package says, my son's the same size and I use .4 to .6 ml when I must, like on nights that teething is awful.

Hmm... my ped just told me 10-15 ml per kg weight, but I didn't think to ask her if there was a difference b/n the infant or regular childrens. Darn - better double check the package!

15mg/kg sounds right. You just have to read the package as to if it's 80mg/ml or 160mg/5ml (trying to remember the exact #s).

I second that. I used to think there were things I would give tylenol for, but my eyes have been really opened with all the research I've done lately. There are way more alternatives out there than I originally thought! And I even used to work at a health food store too.
Hope your baby is feeling better.
