Don’t worry ||Always keep the number of Poison Centre posted beside your phone ||Wash your hands thoroughly and frequently. It’s not the type of soap that prevents the spread of bacteria and viruses; it’s how you wash your hands. ||Make sure the highchair has a wide base, good fit, adjustable secure straps. Consider a post between the child's legs. ||Don’t rush into solving your kid's problems.

Enjoy being together as a family and give a chance for everyone to decompress from the day ||Your toddler may be clumsy simply due to her trials to master so many new physical skills at the same time.

Fever

Fever is considered present if the tempearture is more than 38 C (100.4 F). Fever is a symptom not a disease in itself. Fever is generally not harmful. Fever is the normal body response to infections and helps fighting these. We treat fever for the comfort of the child.

Home care

Encourage your child  to drink extra fluids but do not force him to drink. Keep clothing at a minimum.

Acetaminophen products may be given if your child is uncomfortable, may be repeated every 4 hours. The dose depends on your child weight. Fever should go down by 1-1.5C in 2 hours for 4-6 hours.

Ibuprofen products may be given for children more than 4 months of age, if your child is still uncomfortable. The dose depends on your child weight. Fever should go down by 1-1.5C in 2 hours for 6-8 hours.

Sponge your child if fever is more than 40C, use tepid water (water temperature 29-32C). Sponging works much faster than immersion. Cooling comes from the evaporation of water. Do not add alcohol or vinegar to the water.
