Frantic: Baby’s First Fever

March 5, 2014 - Baby Care

Each time, when my husband and I took our daughter to the doctor, the doctor always asked, “Does she have a cold?” Proudly, I said “no.” I often wondered, what would it be like if my child had a cold? I wish I didn’t – for when she did, it really took the life out of me.

It was the morning of Christmas Eve and the office holiday party at my husband’s work. I was excited that I would be taking my daughter and she would see his co-workers. However, it was below zero outside, and we cancelled the plans. I was really disappointed which changed into shocked when my daughter made her first snot filled sneeze. My husband said, “There you go, her first cold.” How can this be? I had really learned to take care of her from my mother-in-law. She was under gentle care since birth with my mother-in-law and I learned the expertise from her. I had followed everything to protocol. My daughter was under my care and I always washed my hands before touching her. How could it happen? My house was always warm. My daughter always wore correct clothing.

BUT IT’S LIFE, IT HAPPENS!

Frantically I called the doctor. Here is what the doctor advised.
1) When baby sleeps, keep her upright either in the in the swing or car seat. This the mucus will not back down in her throat, which will cause her to cough.
2) If she has a fever, give her fever medicine by following the appropriate dosage.
3) Before eating, after a sneeze, or when needed, suck out baby’s snot using the rubber bulb syringe.
Important Tip: Give the baby nasal drops before sucking out the snot with the syringe.
TWO PEOPLE ARE REQUIRED TO TAKE OUT THE SNOT. ONE PERSON WILL HOLD THE BABY’S HEAD, AND THE OTHER WILL USE THE SYRINGE. Warning: Baby will cry uncontrollably.
4) Use the cold humidifier to keep the room moist and to loosen the congestion and the snot in baby’s nose.
5) Hot steam from the shower can be helpful. But baby must not go in shower. Simply run the hot water, and when steam comes out, baby can breathe the mist.

As the doctor predicted, my daughter got fever, later that night – 101.3F. But, she was still playful. Follow these tips carefully, and consistently, and your baby will recover fast. A cold can get really bad and lead to pneumonia. Be Alert and Careful. Gook Luck.
