They aren't the same thing. Tylenol is acetaminophen. Motrin is Ibuprofen. Acetaminophen is a pain reliever, ibuprofen is a pain relieve, but also an anti-inflammatory.

Ibuprofen can only be given every six to eight hours and no more than three times in a 24-hour period. Acetaminophen can be given every four to six hours, and no more than five times in a 24-hour period.

Doctors and pharmacists generally prefer giving young child acetaminophen over ibuprofen. If you ask the pharmacist about giving ibuprofen to a baby or toddler they will often try to talk you into giving acetaminophen instead.
