My Mood:
can I give my 4 month old motrin?

I know they say motrin after 6 months...but the tylenol just isn't doing it.


she got her shots yesterday and had a low grade fever this morning. thought she would be okay. give her some tylenol and packed the thermometer for our day trip to an amueseament park. got there in took her temp again and it was 103.3! went straight to the first aid station. sat in the air conditioning (temp went down to 102) while my husband took the other kids on the train ride. then went straight home. (good think we have season passes). it's now 101.0. I've been giving her baby tylenol (don't worry I made sure it's not one of the recalls) every 4 hours. and I was wondering if I can do the alternating motrin/tylenol thing. I know they say motrin after 6 months...but the tylenol just isn't doing it.
