If there’s something I’ve learned since becoming a mom is when a fever hits your child try not to panic. Monitor it, but don’t panic. Let their bodies do what it’s suppose to and let that fever kill off as much of the virus as it can. So what do I do when a fever hits my babies? I go into panic mode. Call the doctor. How far is the emergency room mode.
For the past few days Mabel’s temperature has been on a roller coaster and so have my anxiety levels. I normally try to err on the side of caution when asking Google for answers, but this read seemed to calm my own fever fears down a tad.
So even though Mabel seems to be on the mend, we decided to put our New Years Eve plans on hold. My night of fun turned into me obsessively taking her temperature. At some point I hope to put into practice what I’ve learned. But seeing I don’t have that kind of courage just yet, I doubt it will be happening for me anytime soon.
What course of action do you take when a fever strikes your child?
