Dosage Conversion Chart

When liquid medicines are recommended by the pediatrician for your children, you can use either a teaspoon or a syringe (usually measured in cc or mL). Please do not use any available spoon to measure your child’s medication. It is preferred that you use a medicine spoon, dropper or syringe.  If you must use a spoon, use kitchen measuring spoons that are clearly marked with their measured volume.  Conversions are below.
