How high of a temp does your LO have to have that makes you feel that a trip to the ER is necessary?

*no, my two are fine. Lol. Lexi threw up on my bed but no fevers. A friend said his 5 year old was being taken to the hospital bc she had a fever of 102.9*.

Oh I wouldn't take my kid to the ER unless it was over 103 and they were acting different, or volital vomiting, etc. not just for a 102.9 fever. I'd freak out in my own home for that.

i can't imagine taking my child to the er for just a fever. i believe that the body has to be over 107 before brain damage can occur. i truly believe that a fever happens for a reason, and that it really shouldn't be stopped unless you suspect your child may have brain damage.

If it's just a fever, I don't take my kids to the ER.  Or really the dr either.  If there are other things along with the fever, then I may.  Fevers by themselves are nothing to be afraid of.  It's a sign that your body is fighting something, they actually do more good than harm.

See that's the way I am as well. If I can't treat it at home then I go to the doctor. My friend's ex wife didn't even try to give their daughter any sort of medicine or anything. Lol

If Zadessa had a temp of 102 and I couldn't get it down quickly, I would bring her.
