Dealing with a Feverish Toddler
|November 16, 2012||Posted by Madeline @ Food, Fitness, and Family under Toddler|
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
Not getting out of our jammies
Regularly taking her temperature
Nothing makes my heart hurt more than having a sad and sick baby
Wish us luck.
