When is a baby’s fever high enough for me to call the doctor?
Our doctor told us 100.4 and call, right away!
What did your doctor tell you?
He said anytime a fever spikes in a little guy or gal under 2, it's serious.
We tend to run lower temperatures, so I would probably call over 99', if I couldn't manage it immediately. But I never have dealt with a fever or thought to ask my doctor, so good to know!
i tend to control it the 1st time is 100.9 with cool bath, motrin, and vicks under the foot cover with socks, but after 3 hrs is not down i call the doctor's office and let them know what i did and if there is any appt. available right there.
I want to say it was 100 with us as well. It's been awhile since I had a little one that young.
