Brief Answer:
Can be given. You just need to know the correct dose.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Let me assure you that you can give it to your 10 month child if you know the proper dose. Let me know the body weight of the child and let me know the strength of the medicine (check the ingredients - it will mention acetaminophen x ml per 5 ml). I will let you know the correct dose for your child.

Let me know if I could help further.

Regards
