Right before his nap my 19 month old got really hot. He just woke up & is still really hot.
I took his tempature & its 100.3.
No couging , no runny nose, he seems fine.
Should i give him some motrin anyway?

Personally, I'd try a lukewarm bath first and leave him without clothes on afterwards.

That's such a low temperature for a fever... Let it run it's course. Especially if he's feeling fine.

Usually kids are always hot when they wake up because their bodies can not regulate their temperature.



My pedi said wait 30 minutes.
