2-10mg/kg q 12-24 hrs. a kg=2.2lbs

I think the instructions are for the adult products.

Rosie weighs 3.6lbs. How many milligrams do you think would be appropriate considering her condition? I'm sure she's in pain.

Baby aspirin can also be used for pain (but not in any instances where surgery or any bleeding is involved).
