Cooling down your hot tot
If your baby or toddler is unwell your instinct is to wrap him up and cuddle him in close to you. However, if he has a high temperature you may need to clothe him in just a vest.
Paracetamol syrup (for children over 2 months and over 4 kg) and or ibuprofen syrup (for children over 3 months and over 5 kg) may be needed as pain relievers and to help bring a temperature down. However for young babies with a fever it is vital that they see a doctor.
A cool but not cold bath.
If you are struggling to give your baby or child medicines try using a syringe rather than a spoon. Most pharmacists supply them.
