DD had a runny nose yesterday and woke up with a fever of 101.1 this morning. I called the nurse line and she told me to give her infant tylenol and told me a few things to do to make her more comfortable. I asked her if her temp got any higher should I go to the ER. She said if it got to 103 to call the nurse line again. Doesn't that seem really high? Had her temp been 102 or higher I think I would have gone to the ER rather than even called the nurse.
I remember when DD was younger the pedi said if her temp got above 100.4 to take her to the hospital. But for a 5 month old I didn't know how high was too high.
Thankfully her temp is now back to normal. Hopefully it will stay that way.
