Call your dr is the best advice I can give you right now, lord knows we pay them enough...dont ever be afraid to call your babies dr, leave a message and they will page the dr. Hope you hear from other mommies with little ones..

  • How are you taking it? Under 97.8 degrees rectally needs to be reported to the doctor asap.
