My favorite time of year is upon us.  I absolutely love everything about autumn… pumpkins, fall foliage, apple cider, sweater weather, hay rides, and so much more.  I suppose there is one thing that I could really do without though and that would be cold & flu season which begins to increase in October.  With the big girls back in school we’ve already had a round of colds make its way through our household.  As a mom of four I have definitely learned that it is always best to be prepared because you never know when an illness is going to strike.  Plus fevers always tend to spike in the middle of the night and that’s definitely not the time you will want to be running to the pharmacy.

It is important to remember that fevers are not something to be feared {unless your little one is under six months old – then seeking medical attention immediately is necessary}.  For even the smallest babies a fever is considered to begin at 100.4° F and using a digital rectal thermometer will provide the most accurate core temperature reading.  For babies over six months old it is important to remember that not all fevers need to be medicated.  It is simply the body doing its natural job of fighting off an infection.

I make sure to always have acetaminophen on hand in both liquid and suppository forms especially during cold and flu season, but before administering medicine it is always a good idea to try bringing the temperature down with a sponge bath using tepid water (85°- 90° F) to wipe down babies skin.  If after doing this the fever remains AND they seem fussy, inconsolable, or need constant holding giving acetaminophen would be my next step.  It is the most recommended non-prescription medication by healthcare professionals for temporary fever reduction and relief of minor aches and pains in infants and children.  Liquid acetaminophen tends to be what parents reach for first, but sometimes it is difficult to get a baby or young child to swallow the entire dose.  They may be sick with vomiting, have other health issues, or simply refuse to take the medicine.  At one point or another all of my girls have spit their liquid medicine back out and I was left wondering if they had actually swallowed any or if I should give them another dose.  It can truly be nerve wracking.

fever-allA wonderful alternative to liquid acetaminophen is FeverAll® which is the only national brand of acetaminophen available in suppository form.  It is available in three strengths for children from 6 months to 12 years of age and is the only acetaminophen product available with dosage instructions for children as young as 6 months of age.  You can also be certain that an accurate dose is being provided without measuring or causing a mess.
