please enlighten me on how to use baby's
weight to calculate the dosage for paracetamol
syrup? My baby weight is 5.4kg
@obetageorge, pls is the drop powerful than syrup. Because o.8ml is smaller than 3mls
Now that your baby's weight is 5.4kg.
It will be 5.4kg X 15mg. This gives
85mg per dose. That makes it 0.85ml
if you are using paracetamol drops
but if it is the regular paracetamol
syrup which is 120mg in 5ml, that
will be slightly above 3mls.
Paracetamol dose is 15mg x weight of the baby.
