Monday my 2 year old had a fever of 102.8 and I stayed home with him but he was acting completely fine all day and his fever went away. Yesterday was Tuesday and he was fine. Before bed he seemed a little stuffy but that was it. In the middle of the night he crawled into bed with me and told me he was hot and sure enough he was. He had a fever of like 102 something then. A couple of hours later when I took it, it was 104 even. Now it's 103.1. Should I be crazy worried? Should I wake him to give him something?
Call your doctor's office and ask to speak with a nurse, or leave a message for the nurse to call you back. Tell her what's going on. They may want to see him, they may not. If it's higher than 103, I'd give Motrin or Tylenol and call the doc.

No I wouldn't be worried but I'd be treating him with Motrin and Tylenol. The Motrin ( also called Ibuprofen) lasts for 8 hrs. so give him some before bed and when he wakes up. Using Motrin and Tylenol together work better at controlling fever. If the fever lasts more then 3 days you should call a doctor.
