Re: What temp. would you consider a fever?

I'd say 100+ is a fever. We don't give tylenol here until after 102, or if it's nighttime and the fever is making him too fussy to sleep. You can usually tell when the fever has broken, even if their temperature is still a little higher than usual.

Re: What temp. would you consider a fever?

My oldest runs a little warmer than what is considered "normal" for some kids... my 5 yr old's "normal" is 99.2 or so. So for him, I don't consider it a fever until over 100. I don't medicate anything under 101. I don't call the pediatrician for anything under 103, if Tylenol/ibuprofen gets it down within 30 minutes of administering it.

I am NOT saying that anyone who parents differently is wrong, I'm only saying that this is what *I* do.

I think if your daughter's temp has been under 99 for 24 hours, and she's acting normal, that'd be good enough for me to send back to school/daycare.

You could always call the school and see what they say.

God bless!
