Heal Fevers in Babies

When your Baby Feels Feverish

When your infant feels ill, you will know it. They may have a tough time sleeping or wake up in the middle of the night crying or they lose their appetite. You immediately confirm your suspicions they are sick when they are hot to touch and you take their temperature.  At this point you are probably wondering if it is something you can treat yourself or have a doctor look at them. There are certain symptoms you want to look at when determining which that will restore your little one back to health safely.

Finding Out if A Fever is Not Serious

One thing to keep in mind is that fevers are a normal response to infections and cause the body to raise in temperature to fight it; rarely are they dangerous. It is important to know the exact temperature of your child:

  • Low grade fever is when your baby's temperature, in Fahrenheit, is at or over 100.5 (rectal), 99 degrees (axillary) or 99.5 degrees (oral). They are normally not something to worry about and are easy to treat.
  • Fevers that are between 101-103 degrees Fahrenheit are also not serious. If they are ill during the night, you can safely wait until the morning to get a doctor to look at them.
  • A high fever is classified as 104 or more degrees Fahrenheit. It is typically not serious only if the temperature quickly drops down to 100-101 while using treatment measures.

When You Should Call a Doctor

While most fevers can be treated right at home, it is critical to determine if your infant requires immediate medical care:

  • Babies that are 6 weeks and under with a fever of 101 or more are extremely ill and require medical care from a doctor as soon as possible. You should not administer any type of medication to your child at this point. Instead, if possible, inform your doctor of your child's rectal temperature.
  • Babies between 7 weeks to 3 months of age should also visit a doctor if their temperature is above 101 degrees Fahrenheit. If it is during the middle of the night, and the office opens in a few hours, you can safely wait to contact your doctor in the morning while you treat your baby. However, if that is not the case, you should get in contact with your doctor as soon as possible.
  • If your baby has a fever of 104 or more that will not go down after your attempts of treating them, visit a doctor. Another thing to watch out for is if your child shows signs of lethargy meaning they are limp,lifeless, and completely unresponsive.

If your baby is beyond fuzzy and are irritable they will cry for hours at a time, and it is hard to console them. Also, if your baby has meningitis (symptoms of vomiting, stiffneck or pain, high fever, headache), it is best to contact your doctor.

Treating Fever

Most fevers, especially low-grade, are safe enough for you to handle on your own without a doctor. It is a good sign when a baby has a fever because it shows their immune system is functional. The goal of treating fever is to treat your infant and relieve them of their symptoms rather than treat the fever itself.

 1 - Have them Drink Cool Liquids: 
Giving your child this will help them stay hydrated and help cool down the fever
 2 - Use a Cool Washcloth and Give Your Baby a Lukewarm Bath:
Doing this also help ease the fever down faster
 3- Keep the Area They Are In Warm:
Do not keep your child directly under a fan or blast the A/C too cold, it only worsens the fever.
 4 - You Can Give Them Medication:

Ibuprofen and Acetaminophen work as a pain reliever and reducer.
