Too much Tylenol?

My LO is almost 9 months and has her 6th tooth coming through. It obviously bothers her but i am really hesitant to give her Tylenol--given how many teeth she has dealt with plus two ear infections/colds and pain after shots, i feel like she has already had a lot of Tylenol over her short little life. My husband does not feel this way, he says to follow the guidelines and it shouldn't be an issue since we are cautious parents... I really don't want her to hurt though. Any thoughts? Any doctors out there that can help?

    I’m not a doctor, but I did raise a similar concern to our pediatrician, and she assured me that I’d have to be exceeding the max dose every time for days on end in order to actually do damage. I think if you’re only using it as needed and as directed, then it seems like you (and she) would be fine.

    Switch it up with Motrin.
