Babies getting sick...

My 23month ds old woke up with a fever of a 100.9 and a runny nose a lil while ago, now my 6 month old dd is getting a runny nose. I already gave ds tylenol, should I go ahead and give my lil girl some benadryl since she doesnt have a fever yet, maybe so she wont get to sick???

  • Benadryl is for allergies. I wouldn't give anything for a fever of 100.9. Giving your child Benadryl will not prevent them from getting sick.

  • Can you just say your 2-year old instead of your 23 month old? That sounds so ridiculous. And don't give Benadryl.
