mummies, any advise for high fever? eg.. do we need to give water in case of dehydration since fever so high? then i heard need to bring temp down by sponging often.. use normal temp water can ? no need warm water? do we need to give them ice water to drink to bring down their temp? should we let them run naked(except diaper)? then.. how bout food? any food that we better give them? any advise on what we should do when baby has high fever? (other than seeing a doc of cos hehe)
I try to bf alicia every hour when she has fever. That way she doesn't get dehydrated and gets nutrition from milk coz usually when she's sick she can't eat much solids. I also sponge her with room temperature water. Only when fever's very very high then i put a few icecubes into the basin with the water. It can bring the temperature down for awhile but it's only temporary.
I put the cooling gel sticky pad on my dear daughter and feed her breast milk as and when she is irritable and looks thirsty.
I also towel her with lukewarm water and give her baby panadol syrup.
i dont put on her head cos she will pull off also and dangerous during sleep cos she might pull off and bite since im sleeping and cant monitor.. doc say its meaningless also.. doc tell me to put on those hotter area like the neck, the armpits.. so i put there hehe. she look like so many things sticking on her hahahah.
milk .. ok.. i didnt give her alot of milk .. then at night i give her a bottle of water when she takes her medicine(midnight)
i use normal tap water to sponge pin.
though baby have high fever, but still need to wear long sleeves n pants, if not they would catch a cold, n naturally, when you r having a fever, you will still feel cold though your temp is high, right?? (but not those thick material kind)
pin doesnt like the cooling gel so i only stick when she is aslp.
give her losta water to make sure she is hydrated.
food wise, porridge, bread n milk, no heaty food stuff.
make sure fan is always blowing at her.
check n monitor her temp frequently.
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
hmm the docs here tell me to undress her n let her wear only diaper with air con in the house! cos they say it is to prevent her temp from increasing more... hmm my girl sweat alot when she has fever.. i dont really get fever so im not too sure but i remember hubby always say he is cold when he has a fever.. hmm...
If possible, get her a water filled mat....i am not sure if they sell in japan. But sg shop like 'ri ben zi jia' sell it...not expensive less than SDG$10..it's like a pillow size whereby instead of cotton polyester content, it is water, some have bigger size which can fit the whole bodu of the baby.....it's good if baby have fever, they can sleep on it and it cooled and bring down temperature without worry during night time....
Hope you can find those shop that sell
