UPDATE 2: He's still sleeping. But his fever is completely gone and he doesn't have any rash or anymore bumps, just the few that I found last night. He nursed throughout the night last night and slept the whole night, other than waking up to nurse. He seems to be all better!


UPDATE:
I got some acetaminophen and gave him a dose. He still has a fever, very irritable, won't nurse even though he acts like he wants to, very tired, is drooling A LOT and has these little tiny red dots starting to appear. Im really worried about him.



Im not sure what's wrong with Markus, but he's had a fever since yesterday. It started out at 100.9 and lingered around that until this afternoon where it was 101.0. Now it's at 102.5! I have given him Ibuprofen last night and early this morning but his fever never went down. I've got a cool rag on him now. I gave him a luke warm bath earlier. He's so miserable and just wanting to stay on my boob. When should I take him to the ER?

At that age I don't remember when they told me to take the girls in, the best thing to do would be to call the on call dr and see what they say. Let him nurse whenever he wants to so he doesn't become dehydrated.

Okay. I've been letting him nurse as often and as much as he wants. I just feel so bad. :(

Call an on call doctor or a nurse line. They may want you to bring him in or they may suggest alternating tylenol and Motrin every 3 to 4 hours.

Nursing will comfort him as well. It's so hard when they are sick!!

Unfortunatly they will not be able to do anything at the er for a fever that you cannot do at home and most are happier at home. I would call an afterhours number just to check. When Karliegh ran a fever of 104 in april, they told me she is ok as long as it comes down with meds and she was just 6 months old. If his gets much higher and still does not come down, then I would consider taking him in. How did you take the temp? Under arm? Rectally? Ear?

Underarm. I add a degree like you're supposed to. I just took his temp again and its down to 101.2. I have him in just a diaper and was using that cool rag. He's just comforting nursing mostly. He hasn't had much of an appetite today.
