Maddie's Fever

Maddie has been sleeping all day! She woke up at 7, nursed, fell back asleep, slept til 10, nursed, fell back asleep, slept til 12, nursed, I checked her temp (102), gave her tylenol, she fell back asleep, slept til 1, I checked her temp (103), gave her motrin, gave her a tempid bath, she fell back asleep, slept til 3, nursed, and she's still asleep right now at 5.

When she is awake she's kinda limp. She doesn't want to play, just nurse or cuddle. I feel so bad for her. I know she's got to be feeling awful. I think her fever has gone down some now. She doesn't feel as warm as she did earlier. It scared me a little that it went up a whole degree WITH tylenol.

She doesn't have any other symptoms... not even a runny nose. Any other mommy's out there with ideas? What it could be? Ways to help keep her fever down? I'd appreciate it. :) Also, I'd appreciate it if you all could keep my little girl in your prayers. Thanks.


  1. Scary! Poor girl. :( I hope she gets better soon.

  2. It's the worst thing in the world when your little one is sick and little to nothing you can do to help. I never know what to do with a fever but it sounds to me like you did everything you could. I'd go to the doctor if it hasn't broken soon or if it gets worse.

    Also, if you head this way, we'd love to see you. We can take you to see all the D.C. stuff or we could take the kids to the awesome zoo too!
