When your little one is sick, nothing is more important than knowing how to treat them with care. The makers of pediatric liquid acetaminophen, the most commonly used medicine to treat pain and fever in children, have made certain changes to help parents ensure proper dosing. There used to be two concentrations: one for infants 0 – 3 years of age and one for children 2 – 12 years of age. Now both infants’ and children’s liquid acetaminophen are made in the same strength to make it easier for parents and caregivers to avoid common dosing errors.
