1 year old with fever: best natural remedies

With our last two babies we've used thieves and peppermint oil for fevers. We just put a bit on their big toe every few hours until the fever is gone. It works like a charm.

We also like to use a lukewarm bath or cool cloths on the forehead. That's all we really do for fevers at any age. Many of our children tend to just sleep off a fever and we let them sleep. Checking on them and keeping them hydrated.

    I'm not a mom yet, but when I was a kid my mom would boil slices of ginger in water and add a little honey to make it sweeter and it always seemed to make me feel relaxed and comfortable enough to sleep.

    I've never heard of that, but I bet it tasted good!
