I've used both of them with my other kids. It's always seemed like tylenol works better on fevers for us. My two older kids never had much teething pain so I didn't give them anything for that, but I have a feeling Linc may be different so I guess I'll try them both and see which one works best.

We use Motrin and will only use Tylenol as an alternating medication with high fevers. I even refuse to give it to DS.

Thank Kiliki for the siggy!!

Depends... if it's for pain I usually use Motrin. If there's a fever that is difficult to control with Motrin alone, I use both, alternating every few hours.

I was never a tynelol fan, however when my 14 year old DD was in the emergency room right before Xmas, they gave her tynelol and it worked wonders......

I was always a mortin fan however my pedi tells me that the store brand ibruprofen is the same exact thing plus over the years there are always recalls on name brand OTC meds......so I buy CVS brand Ibruprofen. I got Infant Advil (same as motrin) as a gift while pregant (it was stuffed in my diaper bag which I got as a gift among many other items), so I will prob use that first since I have it (as long as the exp date is good of course), after that I will stick with CVS Ibruprofen.

We use ibuprofen here. Acetaminophen can be so hard on the liver. We don't use either very frequently though, preferring to let a fever do its job (killing the bug), unless it's causing joint pain.
