When it comes to sick kids, the thing that worries me the most are fevers. In the last 3 months my kids have had so many fevers but I swear it doesn’t get easier. When my son was only four months old, we ended up in the emergency room because he had a 103 temperature. It was so scary because they had to give him an IV in his head and he was so miserable. Just a few weeks ago, both of my daughters were sent to the emergency room by their pediatrician because of high fevers of 105 that wouldn’t come down with medicine. So fevers are not to be taken lightly – I think they are scary whether you’re a first time mom or a veteran mom.
Out of three kids, only one is actually willing to take medicine. The others are a crying, screaming, puking fit when it comes to medicine. It will take both my husband and I to try and get medicine in them and we have tried every trick in the book it seems – except FeverAll® Acetaminophen Suppositories.
Most moms know that acetaminophen is one of the most recommended non-prescription medications by healthcare professionals – including pediatricians and pediatric nurse practitioners – to help with fevers, aches and pains in infants and children. If you’ve got a little one that is hard to give medicine to though, what to do? FeverAll® is the only national brand of acetaminophen in suppository form and is available in three strengths for children from 6 months to 12 years of age.
FeverAll® Suppositories have been available for over 30 years and parents can rest knowing that their little ones are receiving an accurate dose of acetaminophen vs. having to use a liquid medicine. Best of all, FeverAll® Acetaminophen Suppositories come in an infant strength perfect for babies starting at just 6 months.
You may feel squeamish about giving a suppository to your child but did you know that using a digital rectal thermometer will provide the most accurate reading of a baby’s temperature? It’s best to be prepared because you never know when a fever can strike – my daughter went to bed fine and then woke up with a high temperature! Always have acetaminophen in both liquid and suppository forms on-hand in case you have a child who is unable or unwilling to swallow oral medication. In that case, an acetaminophen suppository is a safe alternative to the liquid form and always provides an accurate dose with no mess.
As much as I worry when a fever strikes, I do have to remind myself that a fever isn’t something to fear. It simply means the body is doing its natural job of fighting off an infection. See how your child is acting and ALWAYS call your pediatrician for advice.
