It's 5 am and baby has a fever. Any one else up this early/late?

Just ran out of Tylenol. No car, and no close 24hr drug stores here in Cleveland to make things even better.

  • If the fever is high, then you need to find a way to get infant tylenol (or whatever brand you like).

  • Baby still have a fever? Try wetting a washrag in cool water and wiping the baby down... that should do til you can get some medicine.

  • Dear,

    If your babay has a fever dont hesitate to give him a cold shower and call doctor if your baby has a temperature of 40 ° C, the bath will be given at 38 ° C to start. Baby Dip gently in hot water. Once in the water, slowly cooled by administering a trickle of cold water until the baby reacts till get cold water . fever is somthing serouse
    hope ur baby will feel better soon

    cheers,

  • Actually, the nurse said warm damp wash cloths in a cool room (but not cold enough for goose bumps). But at this moment it is moot because the pharmacy opened up and her fever is going down with the meds. Yippy!!

    Now for that sleep.
