Sick Baby

I think Aidan does have a slight fever now. He felt warm when he woke up this morning. I tried to take his temperature but the problem was that the thermometer I had was not those that measured temperature from the ears but by placing it under the armpits. It doesn't seemed to be that accurate. He was measuring abt 37%+ each time but when we tested it on ourselves, we were abt 36%. Better remind hubby to buy a Braun ear thermometer which is probably more accurate. Anyway, Aidan didn't finish his milk this morning. He'd only drank abt 100ml when he usually drinks 160ml (and still wants more)and drifted off to sleep while drinking. Not like his usual self..He's usually very active in the morning and would wanna play as soon as he finished his milk.

I'd placed a cool patch on his head to help alleviate his fever and hopefully make him sleep better and more comfortably...

___________________________________________

Aidan's temperature seems to have risen. Stupid thermometer! I took his temp and it measured 38.5%..mine was 35.7%..so if my temperature was normal which should be abt 37+%, his would be about 39% which meant he was definitely having a fever. Fed him and gave him the medication prescribed by the paed. He was looking okay actually..playing about with his grandpa for a while but he became groggy soon after and he's now sleeping again.



Changed him outta his pjs coz father-in-law said the material was too thick for his feverish state..Aidan was jovial for a while when grandpa was ard but he soon became groggy..probably due to the medication n his fever.

yeah..it's one of the after-effects of the jab he had..Not all babies gets fever but apparently, Aidan is one of those who did.

Don't worry, u are not alone

The dreadful thing is that it normally come around the nite time sleep. at least it does for JQ; then it rob both parents of the nite sleep...Normally, it goes away after 1 nite.

Re:
I was fortunate. Aidan had slept thru the night but when I checked him in the morning when he woke up yesterday, he was definitely running a temperature as his forehead was warm. Yet, he wasn't fussing about/crying at all..He just looked drowsy.So, I just let him sleep most of the time and gave him his medication..:)

Get Well Soon!
Hi Angie,
Hope lil Aidan gets well soon. Qile had fever after his hepb jab too. what u can do is take a lot of Vit C yrself now so that he gets it in yr bm. Nurse more if u can, cut fm these few days till he's better. Can also take Cod Liver Oil as all these vits help to up baby's immunity system. If the fever still persists, can let him sleep on the water cushion, but not for too long. Do take care of yr lil babe!
hugs,
lily

Hey Lily

U havent updated ur website lately..how's Qile and your attempts at trying to get Qile to be less dependent on you to sleep/feed?

Re: Get Well Soon!
can get those water (or cooling?)pillows at those petrol kiosks shops: they are actually meant for drivers to sit on for long trips.

alternately, those baby shops at hdb corners..

Hope your baby feel better now.

He looks so smiley in the 2nd PJ photo.

If I'm not mistaken, those water pillows are those cold pillows that jiggle from side to side (like a miniature water bed). U can get 'em at quite a lot of places (but I can't remember where now). I think places like HDB centrals would have, in shops that sell blankets, towels and such. I remember Nick's Linen (@ Thomson Plaza selling it before, but have no idea where it is now).

Re:
Hmmm... U've really never seen 'em before? I've used many of them to sleep at night coz my head always feels so hot on the pillow. Hot-headed, some may say ;P

I think Carrefour might have? I'm not sure.

Re:
Yeah, that's why he's wearing the sleeveless teddy coz I wanted him to keep cool. But eh..he sleeps in an air-conned room so I think I still gotta change him to his pjs.
I've already sponged him this afternoon and will do it again before he sleeps.He does seemed better now. Thanks!!

Measure his temperature more often. Always + 0.5 degree for baby. You got to give him one more time medication even his temperature is normal. Paed advice not to catch a chill. Once his body shivers, his temp will rise. Please take good care of him. Call me if you need help.
