Ibuprofen (its familiar brand name is Motrin) or acetaminophen (yes, that's Tylenol) Here are my six tips for giving children ibuprofen or acetaminophen: 1 taking baby aspirin in your own childhood, but that was before anyone knew better than the Children's Tylenol Suspension Liquid, which comes with a little cup. For example, if you give your child acetaminophen (Tylenol) at noon, you can give him ibuprofen (Motrin) at 3 p.m. and then acetaminophen (Tylenol) again at 6.
Is one better than the other?
Anna has a 101.5 Also, if the fever is really bad, you can overlap advil/motrin and tylenol. I think it's supposed to.
