Fever

Riley has a fever of 102. She's super cranky. I just gave her a dose of Tylenol. What else should I do? I'll moniter her temp as we go but when do I call the doctor?

Re: Fever

  • You can alternate Tylenol and Advil every 3 hours.  I would call the doctor if the fever keeps going up despite the medications or if it reaches 104.  Also, if she isn't drinking/doesn't have a wet diaper in 8 hours I would call as well.  I hope she feels better!  
  • Ibuprofen (advil or motrin are the kinds people usually have) usually helps bring fevers down better than tylenol, so I would try that (after waiting 3 hours).  We don't even use the tylenol anymore because it doesn't work as well.  Lots of fluids, and I agree, call the doctor at 104 or if she doesn't have wet diapers.  Hopefully it breaks soon!
