To quote Sargent Rizzo.... "Hey everybody! Klinger's Got It!" (insert weak cheer here)

DS came home with the daycare plague and passed it on to DP, then DD who is only 2 weeks old. My immune system has fought it off for four days now to try to keep her healthy.

Fought and lost... My fever started to rise tonight.

Any advice from the midwives, l&d nurses and doctors that frequent this board? What can I take other than "home remedies" and tylenol? Can I give any to DD? She's at least gaining weight still. 8 oz in a weeks so she's now 9lbs6. Which means she's eating well.

Yes, I know, "push the fluids." Been doing that. Even got lots of gingerale. I'm just wondering if there's anything else I can do and if I should watch out for anything other than "just the plague."

Thanks in advance...
