mama to E (01-2007) and wife to C
SAHM to 6.5yo DS and 4yo DD. PCOS with two early m/cs. Married 8 yrs. Certified birth doula, writer, editor.
Some stuff I like:
DS has had that happen a few times; his temp gets up to 102-103. DH totally flips and wants to run him to the ER every time, but we've been down that road. The docs always say alternate infant Tylenol and Infant Motrin doses every 6 hours, cool bath if they will accept it, cool washcloth to the forehead, dress them lightly, lots of nursies, juice, water, even popsicles- it actually always works.
I agree there is no cause for alarm. That's a bit high for my ds but not for my dd. When she gets a fever, it is usually 104-105.
And I believe that medicating a fever reduces the body's ability to naturally fight an illness and may prolong the course of the illness.
