With 5 kids, I have experienced a ton of different illnesses. Most recently, my 2 year old little girl developed one heck of a cough. The cough then turned into a full blown fever. it was so sad to see my happy little one suffering with a fever.
This is a product-provided, sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of FeverAll® Acetaminophen Suppositories. The opinions and text are all mine.
Here are some important fever facts to remember when fever strikes your little one!
- According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, fever in babies begins at 100.4º Fahrenheit. Of course, call your physician about any concerns with fever in your child.
- Using a digital rectal thermometer will provide the most accurate reading of a baby’s temperature.
- Be prepared! Make sure you have acetaminophen in both liquid and suppository forms on-hand. In the event your child is unable or unwilling to swallow oral medication (tight lipped, vomiting), an acetaminophen suppository is a safe alternative to the liquid form and always provides an accurate dose with no mess.
- Just because your child feels warm doesn’t mean they have a fever. Caregivers can overdress babies, even in colder weather, which can actually make them hot and fussy. Always confirm with a rectal temperature reading before administering any fever-reducing medication.
- When dealing with fever, how your child looks is as important as the child’s temperature.
- Fever isn’t something to fear. It simply means the body is doing its natural job of fighting off an infection.
- Contact your pediatrician with any questions about your children’s fever, particularly if your child is younger than six months of age.
Sometimes, there’s just no way to get them to take medicine orally. Intense vomiting or nausea can definitely make it impossible to take and keep medicine down. In those cases, you still have one more option, you can use a suppository. Feverall Acetaminophen Suppositories are perfect for when taking medicines orally just aren’t an option.
Feverall Acetaminophen Suppositories gives you the perfect dose every time in just one small suppository. No need for measuring, or worrying if some didn’t get down, perfect every time. Feverall has products to cover all ages up to 12 years, including infants as young as 6 months. FeverAll Infants’ Strength is the ONLY acetaminophen product with dosing instructions on the package for infants as young as six months of age. It’s wonderful to know that there is something available for little ones.
Feverall Acetaminophen Suppositories are small and easy to use. No need to worry, they are made to administer easy and they are designed to melt at body temperature. I’ve had experience with suppository medicine in the past for myself (I was prescribed a suppository nausea medication when I couldn’t keep my anti-nausea meds down…I have terrible morning sickness) and I can assure you that suppositories aren’t uncomfortable or hard to administer. I was extremely happy to have Feverall on hand for my 2 year old. I know she can get the relief she needs without the battle over medicine.
