  • I would say its an ear infection but that is just because that sounds like my 22 month old when ever he has an ear infection. I would wait till tomorrow and try to see if the doctors office can get him in. Explain t them you think he may have an ear infection.

  • My 22 month old also gets 104 temp when ever he gets ear infections. I would try a different urgent care. "Sorry we cant help with your emergency, the doctor is sleeping some back later" Seriously? They didnt have any other doctor that could see him? That place sounds like a joke.

  • I wouldn't go to the er for that temp. Motrin is better. Keep giving that according to directions. In the morning call the doctor.

  • did u put baby in bath? If its not hungry don't force it too eat and if temp gets over 104 go to er. if not they will send back home. Switch back and forth between motrin and tylanol. I would think if it is breaking fevers and feeling ok sometimes you can definately wait for dr. apt.

  • Call a children's nurse line. They are a lot of help! And you can call back as many times as you want. I don't know if they will give you and answers, but I believe the one in ga is 404-850-kids. I think!
