Dealing with a Feverish Toddler

Posted Nov 16 2012 9:02am

Yesterday Emmalyne was off. She was whiny and cranky which are two characteristics that don’t normally apply to her. My mom-tuition started going and I was nervous.

Sure enough, by the time Chris got home Emmalyne had spiked a 103 degree fever. Out came the Tylonel and we prepped for a sleepless night. Poor thing was up whimpering most of the night and little sleep was to be had.

This morning Em’s fever is a little lower but she hasn’t gotten off the couch. For a busy, on the move girl, spending time laying on mama is the opposite of normal.

Look at that face :(

So, today we are doing the following:

Drinking lots of fluids
Resting
Not getting out of our jammies
Snuggling
Regularly taking her temperature

Nothing makes my heart hurt more than having a sad and sick baby :(

Wish us luck.
