thanks to those of you who are concerned with jeremiah. no, julie, his fever isn’t better.
soooooo, what do you suggest with helping a toddler with a fever but no other real outward symptoms (as in, coughing, runny nose, etc)??
since thursday at about 5, he has run a temp in between 101-103, off and on. meaning, sometimes i need to give him tylenol to bring it down; other times, the tylenol has worn off but no fever is present. and sometimes he is ultra clingy, needing to be held, not wanting to play, others he will play fine like his usual self. his eating has also gone down – he really doesn’t want to eat anything besides some fruit, and he is drinking a lot.
and what do you do when the tylenol doesn’t do anything to help the fever go down?? i only have tylenol and can’t go out to get ibuprofin right now. otherwise i would just use that.
i am trying not to be worried but he gets sick so often i am wondering what it is this time. and i know the dr told me this fever isn’t connected with his fall, but that little annoying accusing voice inside keeps saying ‘what if it is from his fall???’
any advice on any of it???
i am at the end of my rope. i sure hope him being sick all the time as a baby/toddler means his immune system will be built up for when he’s older. i hate him being in pain, and i hate not knowing what to do for him.
happy mothers’ day, to all of my mama pals. i hope you and your lil ones and your own mamas have a wonderful day!!
