  • Lots of popscicles, lots of drinks, warm/tepid bath. If she is acting fairly normal I would not worry too much. You sound like you have it under control. Call the pharmacy and ask what the dosage would be for her weight. Just to confirm the amount she needs. Lots of flu going around.

  • Sounds like you're doing everything right. I would take her to the hospital if it goes any higher or if she gets lethargic though.

  • lots of liquids! This is the time to bust out her fav juice or gatorade or something. Keep her really well hydrated and dont worry. Keep her on the motrin and she'll be fine till her doctors appt.
