I am worried I gave my six year old grandson 2 tablespoons

Hello I am worried I gave my six year old grandson 2 tablespoons of adult NyQuil I thought it would be safe if I cut the dosage in half that was 3 hours ago he seems fine but now I am freaking out after I read some things online he also has children's Zyrtec in his system from about 12 noon yesterday. He says he feels fine he acts normal and I only did this because I woke up this morning and he was coughing his head off and I have ran out of children's cough syrup last night

My 1 year old son has had a fever for 2 days now yesterday

My 1 year old son has had a fever for 2 days now yesterday it was as high as 103.4 and today was as high as 103.7. both times I gave him Tylenol and the fever went down right away. When should I take him to see a doctor? He has not shown any other symptoms. Just the fever. He is eating and drinking ok. Also I have been using a tympanic thermometer to take his temperature. If he has a ear infection is it ok that I do that or should I take his temperature another way?

My baby boy is 82 days old (almost 3 months) when he was 38

HelloMy baby boy is 82 days old (almost 3 months) when he was 38 days old he got fever. I went to the hospital the doctor said any infant who has fever without any other symptoms may have meningitis and so lumber puncture was performed it was positive wbc was 570 (clear) monomorph 80% polymorph 20%. though the culture of CSF was negative, no bacteria found. He was put on penicillin and cefotaxime for 2 days but the fever didn't settle down until penicillin was replaced with vancomycin then the fever finally went away. He was on cefotaxime and vancomycin for 14 days.Then CBC &Diff had been tested and neutrophils were low. It read 0.6. The next day before my baby was discharged it read 0.7. The doctor said as long as it kept raising there is nothing to worry about. A week later the same test was done neutrophils were 0.9. Two weeks later (which is today) it read 0.6. it decreased.I haven't noticed any viral infection. He is a happy baby, smiles laughs squeals. He refuses to drink milk sometimes. (formula/ no breastfeeding).The test says he also has low RBC too. (3.34 then 3.56)When he was in the hospital I found a soft lump on his head but MRI says it is just a hematoma.He was born by an emergency C-Section
