Lil E has a fever that came on suddenly,
I tend to wait for the body to break the fever Au natural...

When 104 approaches and is surpassed,
Tylenol or ibuprofen = 1/2 tsp. is used.
There is a belief that

 "Fever, according to the anthroposophic midwife, can often benefit the child. She says:

Fever also helps a child to become more of an individual. Parents often report that their child’s development has taken a marked step forward after a bout of fever: he or she may have grown a few centimetres or changed their way of drawing or painting, with the figures now having hair or limbs. Suddenly the child is seeing the world with new eyes."

Researching natural remedies.

  1. I have seen this happen often, with my own children and others. However, my sweet baby granddaughter has developed a tendency to very high fevers that cause her to seize.... not fun and not good to let a fever that causes seizures stay that high. So now, my son and DIL are giving Ibuprofen when it gets around 104. And I understand why. It's scary to see you child twitching, eyes rolling back in their head and not able to respond normally. Lesson? Never say never, or always. Gotta be flexible.
