My 15 month old had a 102.6 fever this morning when he woke up, I gave Motrin and it came back down. he went down for a nap at 1130 and didnt wake up until 330 and it was 103 then. I gave more motrin and it came back down. I picked him up at 645 and noticed he was very hot, 103.4, so i just gave him some Tylenol.
I brushed it off this morning thinking he was sleeping with a blanket and teething, but now I'm concerned with how fast his temp has come back up.
My options are
1) Call his Dr's awnsering service, which i'm sure the nurse will tell me to go to the ER
2)Just go to the ER
3)Keep alternating Tylenol and Motrin for tonight and make an appt for the morning.
I'm leaning towards 3, because in the hospital, they'll just alternate the meds to keep his fever down, and maybe have it figured out by morning if they will start an antibiotic or not. Plus my son will be uncomfortable there.
What do you ladies thi
