Customer Question

I gave my 2 month old baby a small does of ibuprofen before I read you should not give him anything but Tylenol. Should I be worried?

Thank you for your question.
I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.

We usually do not give Ibuprofen in small baby unless there is other indication and it is absolutely needed.

However, as he is 2 months, one small dose would not cause harm.

You should not worry.

If you have given it now, give him milk so that it may not irritate his stomach.

I hope this information helps.
