okay we are on high alert when our now 2 year old get a fever cause he has had a couple of seizures due to them....they told me that you can use both tylenol and ibprofien for fevers. Tylenol is every 4-6 hours and ibp. is every 6-8. And to start out you can give them both at the same time. So say that you just gave the tylenol it would be safe to do the ibp. then wait 4 hours and do the tylenol again. and then at 6 hours do the ibp again. eventually they will come together at the same time again....you can check with your dr but that is how mine told me to do my son.
also the lukewarm bath is a good idea or maybe some juice or ice pops. i dont know if you have given juice yet but watered down juice pops might help. my son is now old enough that he has popcicles thats why i mentioned the ice pops. Also make sure you dont snuggle as much as you want to a sick baby...no layers!!!
Good luck. i hope some of this helps.
