Re: My MIL gave my son aspirin!
Myself and everybody I know or have ever known grew up with asprin only. There was no motrin, there was no children's tylenol.
Asprin is not poison, it's not at all likely that your child would develop Reye's syndrom. There are other factors that go with it, he'd have to have the underlying metabolic disorder, AND have the flu, or chicken Pox too.
Also, when my daughter would get "growing pains" at night (leg pain) I always gave her baby asprin. I trust baby asprin for typical pain, just not chicken pox.
