Cranial band and fever?

Are there any other mamas out there with helmet babies? My little guy had a temp of 100.1 before bed and I didn't know if I should remove the helmet or not? I went in after he had been sleeping awhile and felt him and he was sweaty so I took his temp rectally. He didn't wake up for any of this! Anyways it was only 97.5? Could this be because of the Tylenol? I ended up taking the helmet off anyways since he was so sweaty and I was worried about it spiking again in the middle of the night.

Sorry, I have no experience with that. Here's a bump though.

I am not sure either, but I think you made the right choice!

None of my kiddos ever needed a helmet, but I would have taken it off too.  No need to have him heating up more than he needs to when he already has been fighting a fever.

 How is your little guy now? Did you talk to your pedi about this incase it happens again? I know how important the helmet is, but equally important is getting the fever down. Ask their opinion on what to do next time.
