The difference between children's and infant's medicine is usually just the concentration. It can be a lot cheaper to give your infant, the children's version but you have to make sure you calculate the different dosage so that your baby is getting th right amount of the actual medicine, not just the amount of liquid. This is not usually a problem with Tylenol (acetaminophen) because all the children's versions I've seen are 160mg/5ml but this does happen for Advil/Motrin/ibuprofen.

For example:

Say you have a 2 year old who is sick and you wanna give him Advil. You want to give him 100mg of Advil according to the manufacturer recommendation.

For the infant Advil that would be 2.5mL but in children's Advil that's actually 5mL. To add more numbers to all this (and to explain why you wanna do this), infants Advil usually sells for around $10/oz whereas children's Advil sells for $2/oz. when you factor in the concentration difference, that means children's Advil is 2.5x cheaper than infants Advil.

It's not totally just to rip you off though so don't go writing angry letters to the manufacturers just yet. For young infants, you don't want to be injecting them with a lot of liquid so it's easier to give them less liquid from the more concentrated infants version. However, once they get to the point of drinking liquids easily, you can save $$$ by switching to children's versions and doing the math yourself.

it's fine for older kids. Just gotta make sure you have the right dosage. there's 160 mg of acetaminophen per 5mL.

infants version used to be much less diluted so that you could be done quickly but nowadays it is just marketing and some toy syringe. they are both the same 5ml=160mg

costco has 2x4oz for $8 children's tylenol by the way.

yeah & with needing more, you may end up using substantially more of the product in the bottle rendering the deal quite un-slick!

This is no longer true. Infant and Children's concentration is now the same. Tylenol was recalled fairly recently... maybe last year? and it was all switched to the same strength due to parents not being able to read labels and overdosing their kids. At this point, there is no difference between Infants and Children's acetaminophen. Your example uses Advil, which I do not know if that has been switched too, but this deal is for acetaminophen and it is all the same strength.
