  • Call the answering service or on call at your pediatrician's office to see what they want you to do. Good luck! Have you given Tylenol yet to at least help with the fever?

  • doesn't sound like a fever... they consider 100.4 the beginings of a fever and nothing special til they hit 101.1... my lil one spent 4 days in the hospital when he was 10 w's old. he's 13w now. for the temp... make sure your LO isn't over dressed... for the diarhea, is it something you ate (bf) or something in the formula? my ebf son had digestive problems after i ate certain things (grape juice, beans, etc). if it continues or your LO starts spitting up more than normal, i would take to the ER, but not before.
