Any of you ladies have ideas on how to get a fever down? Kynslee woke with a fever early this morning at 100 and it went up to 102 and then has gone slowly but is about 101 now. I called her pedi and they agree with me that they think it's teething related. I've given her Tylenol every 4 hour like the pedi recommended and still hasn't gone down that much. She acts normal otherwise besides sometimes crabby but teething stuff works and usually takes care of that. Any of you have any ideas of how to help break a fever? And, how long does a teething fever usually last? I feel so sorry for her - she's so hot. It's been about 16 hours since first noticed fever and gave her tylenol.
I prefer advil to Tylenol. I don't typically treat a fever unless my kids are miserable. Fevers are the body's way of fighting off infection. Funny that you posted this though, I'm up with my Matthew who has a fever. I'd try the advil. Put her in just a diaper and onesie, cool bath, just make sure she stays hydrated. (hugs) momma its often harder on the mommas.
We haven't given Kaitlynn anything for fevers but my older two we would alternate tylenol and motrin. I think there are recalls out though . I hope the teeth pop through soon and she feels better. Teething is so tough on everyone.
This teething is not only kicking Kynslee's butt but mine and DH's also!! Kynslee fought and fought to go to sleep and as I was putting her in the crib it said 1:14 and at 2:02 she woke screaming in pain! The fever finally broke for the most part or comes only be low-grade; But, neither Tylenol or advil has helped the pain and teething tablets do little!! She seems to do good during the day, it's the evening and night that seems to hit the worse.
I know you ladies all deal with it but so hard to be with little sleep and try and comfort a screaming LO. I hate seeing her in so much pain and not being able to do anything - breaks my heart
She seems to be doing a lot better today but she also seemed better yesterday during the day. I'll see how she does tonight and then call her pedi and see if I can get in and at least get her checked out. I think why her pedi didn't want me to come at first becausee it's MediCal (I don't care for the program but sure does help) and there are so few docs that take it that they are always swamped with patients. But, it wouldn't hurt to just get her checked and if is only teething then I know but if not I'd like to do something sooner verses later.
Good news! Took her to the doc and her pedi says it's just teething as she looks fine otherwise. And, I found something that seems to work!!
Any of you ladies heard of Camilia? I gave that to Kynslee last night and she stopped fussing within 10 mins and felt so good that she stayed up and played and laughed for another 2 hrs! I gave it to her a little earlier tonight and hope that she'll sleep good like she did last night. Well, not super good but TONS better then waking every few hours screaming. So excited to find something that works!! A friend recommended it and so glad she did.
