In case moms haven't heard, there are new dosing guidelines out today for Tylenol, due to many reports of toxicity. Here is a news article on it:
It should also be noted that you should be very careful in giving Tylenol to your infants, because 40,000 people die each year of Tylenol misuse or overdose, and it is hard to get the correct dose with small children. It can cause liver problems (it is the #2 cause of liver failure/transplants in the US and #1 cause in the UK) and kidney problems too. Most parents are never informed of these risks!
Please read up on Tylenol before you give it to your kids. It is not as safe as everyone says.
