Child Illness

This section is dedicated to heightening your awareness of illnesses that commonly strike, illnesses we've seen recently, and appropriate pediatric drug dosages. 

For Illness handouts, see our Medical Library.

Drug Dosage:

Below are recommended doses for several common products. Please always check the label for the type of medicine you are giving as well as to check the dosage. If you have any questions as to the correct dosage, please phone us during office hours.

  • Acetaminophen, Tylenol
  • Benadryl, Diphenhydramine
  • Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil

Also important in knowing how to convert teaspoons to milliliters.

Teaspoon = tsp; milliliters = ml; tablespoon = tbsp

  • 1 tsp = 5 ml = 5 cc = 1/3 tbsp
  • 1/2 tsp = 2.5 ml = 2.5 cc
  • 1 1/2 tsp = 7.5 ml = 7.5 cc = 1/2 tbsp
  • 3 tsp = 15 ml = 1 tbsp = 1/2 ounce
