Hello,

Here are the suggested dosage instructions from the Benadryl website.

Children under 4 years: Do not use
Children 4 to 5 years: Do not use unless directed by a doctor
Children 6 to 11 years: 5mL
Adults and children 12 years and over: 10mL

According to the kids data organization the average 2 year old weighs 12kg so I am going to make the assumption that your child is likely less than 4 years old and with that in mind I suggest that you do not give your child any Benadryl. If your child is having symptoms you believe require Benadryl please consult your pediatrician for the options that would work best for you and your child.

I hope this helps.
