I need some advise from other mommas.. I will call the advise nurse, but know they are just going to have us come in tomorrow and probably prescribe unnecessary antibiotics.
My baby just turned 2 and has had a mild cold for about a week...she came down with a fever this morning, ranging from 103 - 104+/-, taken under the arm. I am not too worried about the fever, we have been there before, and I believe it will serve its purpose in helping fight whatever virus she has...
Her cold is mild, little runny nose, a cough here and there, chest congestion is mild to nill. But her eyes are glassy, she is sleeping and nursing almost constantly. Her breathing is fast and her heart beat seems fast. Is this normal with the fever??? I can't seem to find anything that talks about this... I finally gave her some tylenol, as she was so miserable and shivering.
Do I need to worry about her breathing fast with the fever, or is this ok?
