Ok, I need some ideas as to how to help him get better. Im a first time mother and I was told if he had a temp over 102.1 to take him in. Well, he had 102.5. We cooled him down with a cool bath and his temp went back to normal. he ate, then went down for a nap. When he got up he was 102.4 and we took him to the er because we had had the same thing and it was a brutal strain on us and we wanted to be sure what to do. So ten hours later we got done with the er and he had nothing wrong but a virus so we took him home for a few hours then to the docs later on that day like we were told. They said only to give tylenol if the fever spikes. But he had a 100.1 this morning after ten hours no tylenol, but every time I touched him he would shriek like I was killing him (body aches because we had the same thing and it hurt to move at one point for me) Is that ok?
So no temp but he appeared to be in extreme pain (id never heard him shriek like that...ever.) so I gave him the dose the dr said to give and he started eating and was chipper enough to watch a movie in his swing.
Now bear in mind when this baby isnt hungry he is super happy gigley smiley. He has always been a super happy baby so thats how I know hes in pain.
If anyone has any homeopathic (non drug involving) remedies to keep him more comfortable I would be so thankful. I dont want to just keep pumping my kid full of tylenol. I am giving him 2 oz of pedialite with each feeding (since he is sweating like mad and having runs) and that seems to make him feel better (hes finally napping without moaning)
