DS3 is ill again, crusty eyes, streaming nose and swollen red cheeks. His temp feel very high but he's moved the thermometer to only he knows where
He's 16 months and we've spent most this year in and out of CAU with him for various infections etc.
He's had paracetamol about 7.15 and he's asleep. I checked on him and he stirred and started shivering but still feels really hot to touch. Shall I wake for more paracetamol/ibuprofen or leave to sleep?
If he's shivering I'd say yes. Do you have a syringe or a bottle handy? It might be possible to take advantage of his sucking reflex and not actually wake him up! If you use bottle just put a little bit of milk or water in and mix the calpol into that.
I know he can't have anymore yet, last time the only way we kept him out of hospital was with alternating ibuprofen and paracetamol in regiment but he was rocking a temperature of 39 then. I'm quite uneasy without the thermometer!
Poor baby, he's only just starting to recover from the last lot of infections/penicillin allergy
He'll take medicine from a syringe. I'm worried about going to sleep when he's poorly.
