My son had a low fever of 100.3 a few hours ago. His temp was taken from his underarm. I gave him some children's ibuprofen and it got back down to 99.0. Ive read that that's relatively a normal temp but he still feels a little warm. How should I dress him for bed? I don't feel that sweating it out is safe for a child his age but can anyone give me suggestions? I'm just confused on what to dress him in because I'm afraid of bundling him too much or not enough.!Answer Question

You should give infant Tylenol (acetaminophen) for fever in an infant under 2 years old not children's Motrin unless you ask a Dr. first. It works better for reducing fever as well.
