Handling Fever During Cold & Flu Season
It’s that time of the year! Cold and flu season has already hit our house. Weston was the first victim and I was the second. Kids seem to recover so much faster than adults though! Even after almost six years of being a mom, handling a fever with the kids is still something that always gets me a little worked up. I like to be prepared.
There is just something about seeing my kids not feeling well that gets me all worked up. I know I’m not the only parent that feels this way.
Staying educated is the best way I’ve found to handle fever. I want to know the best way to help care for my kids when they’re sick. Thanks to FeverAll, I’ve got more information than I’ve had in the past. This momma is prepared! Handling fever will be nothing for me this year! We’re going to be fever ready (no midnight runs to the drugstore for us)!
Here are some Be Fever-Ready Facts from FeverAll:
- According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, fever in babies begins at 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit. But always call your physician concerns about fever in your child.
- Your child might not have a fever just because they feel warm. Caregivers can overdress babies, even in colder weather, which can actually make them hot and fussy. Always confirm with a rectal temperature reading before administering any fever-reducing medication.
- How your child looks is as important as the child’s temperature when you’re dealing with fever.
- Fever isn’t something to fear. It simply means the body is doing its natural job of fighting off an infection.
- Contact your pediatrician with any questions about your children’s fever, particularly if your child is younger than six months of age.
Handling Fever by Being Prepared
Handling fever is all about being prepared. So take time now to prep your medicine cabinet for cold and flu season! This year, FeverAll® is helping me be even more prepared.
- Make sure you have acetaminophen in both liquid and suppository forms on-hand for the cold and flu season. If your child is unable or unwilling to swallow oral medication, an acetaminophen suppository is a safe alternative to the liquid form and always provides an accurate dose with no mess.
- FeverAll® Infants’ Strength Suppositories (80 mg of acetaminophen) is the only acetaminophen product available with dosage instructions for children as young as six months of age.
- FeverAll® is available at your local CVS, Rite Aid, Walmart, or Walgreens. But you don’t want to be caught at any of those in the middle of the night when your child is sick!
- Keep a variety of thermometers on hand. Using a digital rectal thermometer provides the most accurate reading of a baby’s temperature.
- Save your pediatrician’s phone number in your phone or keep it written down with your other supplies.
- Ice pops and gelatin is good to have on hand to help keep your child hydrated.
- Wash cloths that you can get wet to use as a cool compress.
- Other comfort items for your child.
Just be sure you have everything you need before fever strikes! It will help put your mind at ease.
Use FeverAll® only as directed. If you have specific questions about fever, acetaminophen or using FeverAll, speak with your child’s pediatrician. FeverAll Acetaminophen Suppositories are available at major retailers and drugstores across the U.S, such as Walmart, Rite Aid, CVS and Walgreens.
