Make sure you are giving Motrin and Tylenol at eight and four hour intervals. Motrin and Tylenol work differently in the body so both can be given, Motrin every eight hours, Tylenol every four.

Different perspective then the others answers but my son is 15 1/2 months and he started running a fever Friday night and by Sunday it was really high and he was lethargic so we went to the ER per docs orders. He was slightly dehydrated despite nursing and drinking water. He was admitted overnight with an IV for fluids. Tons of tests came back fine it is just a nasty virus that is going around. Keep an eye on him and check his temp often. My sons went up pretty fast. He is much better today and no fever since Monday night. I don't give Motrin because my daughter couldn't take it and my son has tons of allergies so I haven't tried it with him. My cousin swears by the alternating of the two for her kids. Good luck mama!!!
