My 20 month old son woke up from his nap cranky and with a fever of 102.4. The old me would have grabbed the tylenol but I recognize fevers are his body's way of fighting off infections. He's acting okay, just a little clingy and an hour later his fever hasn't gotten worse. I have witnessed a fever climb high really quickly before so I'm wondering at what point would you do something about it? I was planning to monitor him every 15 minutes or so and if it climbs to 103 (especially if it's quickly) to do a bath. I don't want to just call the doc because I know they will just push the tylenol. Does this sound reasonable?
