As a mother, I’ve come to realize that there’s nothing more disheartening than when your child is sick. For me, it comes with a mix of emotions including stress, fear and wishing that I could take it away.
One symptom that can alert you that your child is ill is a fever. Fevers can indicate that something isn’t right in the body and it’s their way of fighting something off. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, fever in babies begins at 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit. My youngest is just 4 months old and had his first fever a few weeks ago shortly after his immunizations. He never fevered higher than 101, but I watched him closely throughout the night to make sure that it didn’t spike higher.
With cold and flu season coming upon us, many times a stomach bug will be accompanied by a fever. It seems that our household gets a bout or two of each year and it’s not fun. It’s important to stay prepared with acetaminophen in both acetaminophen in both liquid and suppository forms. If you have a child that is unable or unwilling to take medicine orally, an acetaminophen suppository is a safe alternative to the liquid form and always provides an accurate dose with no mess. FeverAll® Infants’ Strength Acetaminophen Suppositories can be used for infants as young as 6 months and is a good idea to keep on hand. By keeping this medicine on hand, it could maybe save us a midnight trip to our local retailer when one of our children are sick.
Acetaminophen is one of the most recommended non-prescription medications by healthcare professionals – including pediatricians and pediatric nurse practitioners – for temporary fever reduction and relief of minor aches and pain in infants and children. FeverAll® is the only national brand of acetaminophen in suppository form and is available in three strengths for children from 6 months to 12 years of age.
If you think your child may have a fever, it’s a good idea to make sure that they aren’t overdressed and take a temperature rectally to get an accurate reading. If you are worried, you can consult your pediatrician before taking further measures.
With cooler temps ahead and cold and flu season coming on, don’t be caught unprepared. Pick up FeverAll® at your local Rite Aid, CVS, Walgreens and Walmart stores.
