During an illness, toddlers often decrease their solid food intake. Keep her well hydrated and continue to nurse. Watch for signs of redness of the eyes, swelling and rash. If the fever continues for another day, or if she seems unwell, please see your Pediatrician. Continue the antibiotic and re evaluation is indicated if there is no improvement.
