How much is too much tylenol?!

My son is definitely teething, he's getting the top 2 front and the incisor. He's cranky and definitely in pain and he's had a low grade fever of around 99.5 for about a week now. I've been giving tylenol for nap time and motrin at night to help him sleep. I know the dosages to give him but how many days in a row is it safe to do this?

    Rotating between Tylenol and Motrin is good. But I would only use if you are sure LO is in pain vs using it as a preventative method.

    99.5 isn’t a fever. I think it’s considered a fever when it’s 100.4 and above. Call your drs office to see how many days in a row it’s ok. See if your son can sleep without the meds and use something else instead - teething toy, pacifier or a blanket.
