    Default bad mother

    I feel like a horrible mother. I gave my lo benadryl instead of motrin. The pharmacist said it was ok but I didn't think they should take benadryl. I was sleep deprived & couldn't see straight & that's how it happened. Now I feel horrible that I did this. I gave him 1/2 tsp. He's 11 months old.

    I just checked my med sheet from the doc and 1/2 tsp is the dose for 18-23 lbs.
    Don't be to hard on yourself, it happens. Maybe it will konk him out and you can get some rest and then you won't be sleep deprived anymore.

    I was going to say the same thing.
    The dosing chart I looked at said 3/4 teaspoon for 17-21lbs. Again, try not to be so hard on yourself we all make mistakes
