  1. It’s not the switching I’d be concerned about, it’s the dosage of ibuprofen and whether or not ibuprofen is okay in general that I’d be worried about. I don’t know much about it, but I’d call your doctor quickly just to make sure that it’s fine for her.

  2. Switching back and forth is the best thing to do with a fever. And since she is 6 months old it is fine. Under 6 months and only paracetamol is concerned safe.
    This is what they do in the ER for children with fever. A friend of ours is an ER doctor.
