Alright ladies... I need some advice from some of the more experienced mama's! My dd is 6.5 months, and has never been sick a day in her life ... thank God! Breanah was running a fever yesterday (100.0 rectal) so I gave her some Tylenol. It brought it down with the tylenol to normal range. She really isn't acting like she is sick. Today, she ran a temp like 99.8 and 99.9. (again, giving Tylenol) No runny nose, cough, or abnormal behavior. Heck, she isn't even fussing, which is what I guess is concerning to me. She is although not eating as often. This am she BF at 9am, then waited until like 2:30pm to eat again (I offered... she flat refused till then) Then she didn't eat again until like 8pm! This was really strange.. she def eats more often than this usually!
So my questions are: **at what point do you become concerned? I know my pedi says to call them for fevers 100.1 and above. **Could it just be maybe she is getting ready to cut teeth? **Do they run fevers like that with teething? **Do their appetites decrease when they might be getting ready to get teeth? Maybe she has a virus? **When should I call the Dr?
Sorry ladies, I am just nervous... since I only work on the weekends, and I will be leaving her in the care of the grandmothers this weekend when I am at work.
