Is Eating Temperature Hot Soup Bad For Your Baby
Not very: I am not convinced infants actually develop fever when teething.They have so many minor viral illnesses between 6m-3y in the same time frame that there is sure to be overlap. If they do I would only accept up to 101. Any higher & I would want to look to some illness as a source.See 3 more doctor answers
See below: The most accurate method is rectally. Certainly in an older child, you may not be able to do that. Oral temp in an older child is reliable. And, the temporal artery thermometers are very reliable.
100.4 F: Most agree that a rectal temperature of 100.4 and above represent a fever in an infant.
Condition not temp: Kids febrile response to illness is more a gauge of how well their body rejects the germs than how serious the illness. I've had kids with 105 giggling & running down the hallway while some with 100.4 couldn't move without pain. Any kid with sustained t >102 for >12hrs deserves a dr visit. I am more concerned about taking fluids, wet diapers & play. A 7yo with 107 last yr with flu did quite well.
See a doctor: Fever usually means that the body is raising the temperature to stop viral or bacterial attacks. An infant retains the mother's antibodies for about 3 months. The infant's immature immune system takes over so the baby becomes more vulnerable. If the baby's temperature is very high or very low, it may be very serious go to emergency dept, hydrate, tepid not cold water for cooling, take a temperature.See 1 more doctor answer
What qualifies as a fever when taking an infant's temperature under his arm? I've heard a variety of answers and am a little confused.
Me too.: In infants I prefer rectal temp.102.0 qualifies as a "temperature" this way. It is slightly higher than oral. I do not have great faith in the skin strips.See 1 more doctor answer
Toddler coughs when eating/drinking. Had severe reflux as an infant, so bad he wouldn't eat. Does this sound like he may have reflux still? Drools a lot
Reflux: Yes, it certainly sounds like he still has reflux. I would check with a pediatric gastroenterologist for further workup.
My babies 2 months old, her temperature is at 99.2, under her arm. I gave her little remedies but her temp, couple hours later, is still 99.2.?
Have her checked: True fever at her age (rectal temperature over 100.4 f) deserves evaluation. Giving antipyretics without proper evaluation is not wise.
My 7mth old has had a temperature (102-103) for two days now. Took her to ER and was told there was nothing wrong that it was normal for babies. Is it?
No, not "normal": A fever to 102 -103 is not normal, but it may not be dangerous. It is common for babies to have fairly high fevers in response to viruses. Hopefully they did a good work up to check for bacterial causes of illness. If they did and they didn't find anything, then your baby probably has a virus and just needs time to get better. If the fever doesn't go away in the next couple days, go back!
Can there be more than 102 f temperature in babies in case of viral illness. How many days it takes to recover. Is there need antibiotics?
See Dr. Now: If your baby has a fever, you should definitely visit your pediatrician or go to the emergency room for a proper evaluation. Your baby could have an infection which might need to be treated right away. The severity of the fever does not indicate whether it is caused by a virus or bacteria. The baby may require antibiotics. Get this looked at asap!See 1 more doctor answer
14month old son. What temperature means fever? What to do immediately when fever? Give infant Tylenol (acetaminophen) or something? Pl suggest.
Take a breath: For most healthy children, I consider 101 to be a fever. For tiny or sick babies it's different. Take a breath and immediately take a good look at your son. Is he breathing usually/comfortably? Is he drinking fluids and having wet diapers? Fever is a defense mechanism which helps your body fight infections by making it less hospitable. Tylenol (acetaminophen) can lower fever, but isn't always needed.See 1 more doctor answer
My 1 month old infant has bright orange liquid stools that are foul smelling and can't go without me taking his temperature rectally every 5-6 days.
See Doctor: Some sensitivity to the milk, may need tests on stools and change in milk.
Can side-lying breastfeeding cause ear infection and high temperature to babies. What is the best method of side-lying breastfeeding?
Decreased urination: An interval of 12 hours or longer between wet diapers in an infant is suggestive of dehydration, and is in fact one of the questions your pediatrician will ask when evaluating hydration status. Dehydration in infants can be a serious condition, and warrants prompt evaluation.
Yes: The lentils are great. It is ideal to give babies foods that grow from a flower (includes traditional fruits and all beans) until age one and then give vegetables (broccoli, potatoes, kale, etc.) you can give broccoli and lentil soup as long as it is not so chunky he/she could choke on pieces. Be sure the child has had the lentils and broccoli separate before you give them together..
