Duder is sick. I think it might be an ear infection but I am not sure. His fever broke tonight after I let him fever it out for the day.
Fevering it out makes for a long day or days. When Nug was little she fevered it out as well and still does. The only time I give tylenol is if they are really not feeling well or their fever is higher than I feel comfortable with them having. When we fever it out it means they get to be in just a diaper and a t-shirt and they also get tons of snuggles (I can’t say I mind that part at all).
I know that fevering it out isn’t for everyone and I personally am one to take tylenol at the first sign of sickness. It might be because I am a mom and can’t afford to spend a day in bed when there are children to play with. But I can’t deny that fevers are a good thing because it means your body is fighting off the infection that has invaded it.
Maybe the next time I get sick I will “fever it out” and maybe, just maybe my children will snuggle with me:-)
