Elizabeth has been teething in earnest this week. She has been the slobber queen since she was about 3 months old, but her first two teeth are just starting to poke through. So we have been giving Tylenol & Advil as necessary to keep her happy and free from pain. Yesterday afternoon, I realized we were really low on baby Tylenol - only about one mL left in the bottle. But I figured we'd give her Advil for pain if needed...
Except. She woke up at eleven, was really distraught, and super warm. She had quite a fever - 102.9F, which is 39.4 C - and was kind of beside herself. We gave her the last of the Tylenol, and cool cloths on her forehead and back of her neck. She pretty much hated that, and did little shuddery cries the whole time. :( Poor baby!
And then Matthew got dressed, put on his coat, and went to the 24 hour grocery store to get her some more Tylenol for the rest of the night. On his bicycle. He's a Daddy now.
Addendum: Elizabeth woke up this morning completely afebrile, and a happy baby again. Evidence:
