  • All good advice. I would just add to cover him with a light blanket or sheet when undressed and you can wipe the top of his head and back of his neck with a cool wash cloth. Just keep checking his temp every so often and once the fever seems to break, be sure to put some comfortable clothes on him so he doesnt catch a cold. Remember too, when we have fevers we tend to be sweaty and it's easy to feel cool when air hits that wet sweat, which could lead to colds and such. I hope your baby feel better soon!
