  • My kids were older when they had it, but steamy bathroom, snuggles, as much liquid as I could get them to take, and alternating Tylenol & ibuprofen (doctor's orders). A friend of mine has 2 kids who just had it - a 2yo and I think the other is about the same as yours, 7-9mos. Her doc said lots of baths for her kids.
