Re: 11 month old baby sick with cold.....please help
When my daughter was 7 months we ended up in the ER because she had a fever of 105 and Tylenol was not touching it. Our dr office was closed as it was 4am. They checked her over, checked for a urinary tract infection, drew blood and did a chest xray (all were horrible expereinces for me and her). In the end, they couldn't find anything wrong with her. Virus. That was the only answer we ever got. They told us to use Motrin because it works well and they are allowed to have it beginning at 6 mos. So ever since that experience, we have just started her on Motrin right away as soon as we found out she had a fever and kept on top of giving her more around 6 hours later. Even if she was sleeping, I set my alarm clock to get up and give it to her. I always felt like my dr thought I was overreacting to my child's illnesses because the only answer I got each time was VIRUS. So I have just learned to start her on Motrin and if she's not better in 2 days I call the dr and make an appt. It's so hard to know what to do. Good luck, I hope your child is feeling better and you all are getting some rest.
