He can have Children's Benedryl at double the child's dose. If he weights 15 lbs. Give him the dose for a 30 lb. child.

Thank you! I didn't have children's benedryl so I gave him 1 adult tablet @ 25mg. He is small only about 9 lbs.....as of this morning the swelling has gone down quite a bit...should I give him another dose? He's not crying anymore and looks pretty content.

if the swelling is down and he is eating and drinking fine..no need to redose the benedryl : )
