Obvious FTM here wink

I know that I'm being ridiculous, but I'm really worried about my 15 month old DD with a high temperature. I just took it now and it's at 38.3.

Given her Calpol and she's laying in her bed singing, but it still very clingy.

I've read that you shouldn't dab them down with a lukewarm flannel.

What do I do? Feeling pretty helpless.

Just keep up with the Calpol, give lots of cuddles and keep an eye on her really. I would consider 38.3 a raised temperature, not really a high one. I wouldn’t really be worried.

Today has been quite hot so maybe baby is just feeling abit warm ?

38 is raised, but it’s not anything to worry about.

Keep her in a nappy with a light sheet if she wants a blanket. The calpol should bring it down to normal levels. You can stick some ice cubes in water to cool her down that way. Don’t dab with a flannel or put in a cold bath or anything like that.

Ice cubes in water to drink I mean.

Thanks all

I know I'm being crazy. I think it's just the mum guilt that I have to go to work tomorrow (I work FT)

Luckily DH is home (teacher), but still feel awful sad
