Day 153 - I've Got a Fever...A Fever For More Cowbell (or not)

"Not feeling so hot today. This sucks."

Paige had to leave day care a few minutes early today. She developed a fever of 100.7˚. Some baby Tylenol brought it right back down, but she was not a happy camper. Big plus to whoever came up with the idea of putting a baby thermometer in a pacifier by the way. Fever was gone that evening and didn't come back. I hate it when she isn't feeling well, you just wish you could make it better, but some times there is nothing you can do. I guess that is part of being a parent, learning what you can fix, what you can't, when you should and probably most importanlty, when you shouldn't.

Sosorry she wasn't feeling well. Fevers do come and go with babies but need to be attened to.

Poor thing. Baby Motrin is a very effective fever reducer, but make sure they have something in their stomach or else... well, you can imagine. Ew.
It lasts longer too.
