Unfortunately my son had been taken to the ER twice before he was 3 months old with different viruses. We were advice by the doctors to use this baby Tylenol to help reduce the incredibly high fever my son had. We took the recommended dosage (calculated by weight) every 6 hours as needed. This really helped him out and he was back to normal self in no time!

Tylenol, how could I ever live without you!!? Another brand I've used for years and my family before me. Love this tylenol because my kids dont make that medicine face, they love the cherry flavor and I love (for those tough days when they fight the medicine) that it has no dyes in it. Makes for a faster and easier clean up, no clothing changes needed

It’s surprisingly difficult to find a dye-free fever reducer these days! This is our preferred otc when our little one is running hot. We frequently default to Advil, however, because we’re more likely to find their dye-free formula at our local superstore. She tolerates the cherry flavor, but it’s not her favorite.

When my kids have fever , I get them Tylenol the cherry kind, it’s their favorite. Also they have for different ages :) my kids take the one that is for 2 to 11 years of age. That’s what I love about Tylenol! I feel like it’s an average price for medicine. Totally worth having in your cabinet because it works!

This is my go to medicine for my babies! They never have a problem taking it. They love this flavor. And it doesnt have any added dyes or colors. One bottle lasts a pretty long time and it always makes my babies feel better! Super affordable and you can find it anywhere! Staple in my medicine cabinet!

I always get dye free because kids are so messy and unpredictable. Half the time the medicine comes right back out all over their clothes! I love children's Tylenol. It helps me kids relieve pain so well. I am a repeat customer 10x over. We always have Children's Tylenol in our house

I have never had an issue with giving my kids this medicine and they have never reacted negatively. They love the taste, and I like that there aren't dyes in it. It keeps my floor and counters happy. It soothes my kids teething pain and fevers, and for young babies it is a must have.

We got a sample of this from the pediatrician.  It has worked great when my daughter was really fussy (ESPECIALLY TEETHING!)  It did the trick we would definitely buy it again.  Always a good idea to have some around because you never know when you are going to need it.
