Pediatric Measurements

I’ve listed some common conversions when dealing with children. So if you’re ever confused on what you’re giving your child, take a look!

Liquids

1/4 teaspoon = 1.25 ml

1/2 teaspoon = 2.5ml

3/4 teaspoon = 3.75 ml

1 teaspoon = 5 ml

1 1/2 teaspoon = 7.5ml

2 teaspoons = 10 ml

3 teaspoon = 1 tablespoon = 15 ml

1 cc = 1 ml

A common mistake for pediatric patients occur when the prescription labels read “2 ml” and patients mistake the measuring for “2 teaspoons.” The quantity of 2 ml is substantially a lot less than 2 teaspoons (1/5th the quantity). Please be aware what the label says, “ML” or “Teaspoons!”
