Should I Give My Baby A Regular Bath Or A Sponge Bath To Lower His Fever
Is it safe to give an 8 month old baby Infant Tylenol (acetaminophen) every day during teething to help with teething pain & discomfort? Baby's weight is 18 lbs.
No: Fever is good, as it helps the body fight off infection. As long as baby looks happy and playful, you don't need to treat the fever at all. If s/he is fussy (and over 2 months), you can give Acetaminophen (tylenol). If it is bathtime and baby looks fine despite a fever, there is no reason s/he can't take a bath -- but no need to give the bath to specifically to lower the fever. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Carefully: Make sure you never leave your infant alone in the bathtub. Always keep a hand on them to help keep them steady and avoid any falls. Use warm water and a non-scented soap/shampoo to clean. Rinse with warm water and immediately wrap in a warm towel (you can put it in the dryer during bathtime to warm it up) after bath is done. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Infant fever 7 months old. It could be from teething. But do I do. And can I give him water and how much?

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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
