I was giving her tylenol. She's almost 6 months. It was between 102 and 103. Took her to the doc this morning. It came down to 101. They sent us hoome not really telling me anything so I'm just confused and guessing its some viral infection

yes if the temp is 102 for your baby; yes by all means go to the pediatrician as soon as possible and have it checked out. Sometimes you can bring the temperature down by using a warm bath but sometimes it could be that the baby just needs to be checked out by a medical professional. safety first. okay?good

 If it doesn't come down any further, take her in again tomorrow and request tests. Could be more than a virus. Some bacterial infections only show fever as the symptom and those get bad really fast.

Better safe and over cautious then not, right? :)
