It really sucks when babies get sick

Babies with a fever can be really scary for a parent especially a new mama. My little one had a fever of 102 for almost 3 days straight recently. I did some researching and found this really good article from babycenter.org about fevers in babies. 
Best advice from this article in my opinion….

 “As pediatrician and American Academy of Pediatrics spokesperson Janice Sullivan puts it, “Treat discomfort, rather than fever.” And keep in mind that fever actually helps the body fight illness. Instead of focusing on the thermometer’s fluctuations, pay attention to other signs to determine how sick your child is.”
