  • Take her to the Dr? Call the Dr. -most have nurse lines and they can help you asses the situation. With my infant I am ALWAYS better safe than sorry... GL Could be teething, could be an ear just dont know

  • The spitting up sounds like reflux, but if she is actually vomiting and nothing at all is staying down, that could be a tummy virus, which would go along with the temp. It could be teething too or some sort of ear infection. Like the pp said, call her doc and ask what to do. They will let you know or they could end up telling you that they want to see her. Either way, you'll get some much needed help for her. Good luck!

  • I would really bite the bullet and take her temp rectally. Use some Vaseline on the end of the thermometer, make sure you don't insert it too far, and have something ready in case it stimulates her to poop. This is really the most accurate way to get her temperature. Then you can call your doctor and have a little more accurate information at your disposal. Good luck!
