I have a 15 month old daughter. I only gave her tylenol for a while. I have found that Motrin works better for her than Tylenol. I have heard this from others as well. I only give it to her when she seems to really be in pain though. I feel like if she is in pain, I need to help her feel better. When I have cramps or a head ache, I take somethiing for it so that I don't have to suffer. Why shouldn't I give it to her? Pain isn't good for anyone either. That is just my opinion and I hope it helps.
