my 13 month old son is sick and i'm not sure what to do. his nose is stuffed and he has a fever. i also noticed his heart was racing before i put him down. as i nursed, i kept my fingers on his heart and did notice it slow a bit. he woke up a couple hours later and i just got done nursing him again. i took his temp and it's gone down; from 101 to 98. his heart was still beating fast, but not as fast as earlier. i don't have a watch w/a second hand, so i can't time out how many beats per minute. if he wakes up again, i might take him by the microwave so i can use it to count down seconds. any advice? i wish i still had one of those bulbs to suck out his nose. he can't breathe with his paci in, so he keeps waking up. poor guy. =(Answer Question
You can give him fever reducer and use a humidifier. That's a low fever and your heart beats faster when running a fever. I would just make a call to the pedi as well to be sure.

To bring his fever down, mop him with a washcloth and luke warm water.
