  • I usually sit and snuggle on the couch after I have given medicine for the symptoms that she has and we watch a few dvd's

  • My little girl turned 2 today and she has been sick with a virus that is like the flu so we have been taking warm baths, cuddling, and playing with her fav. toys along with watching her fav movies.

  • Same as above (all posters), I give pedialyte and make pedialyte popsicles (or give regular ones). My oldest loves popsicles when she's sick and has a fever. I also put a cool washcloth on her forehead sometimes.

  • I give her medicine and cuddle with her. Rub her back and watch tv with her.

  • Warm baths, baby vicks chest rub, meds (if needed), dress in cool clothes-- meaning don't overdress, push liquids like chicken soup, jello, popsicles, juice... and I have them rest. What I do is we 'camp out' in the livingroom- I get the sleeping bags out so the kids can 'rest' get their favorite snuggle toy or blanket, and pop some favorite dvd's in the player.
