Fevers are safe

My Mother Says Fevers are safe.

All parents will go through their children getting fevers. A fever is the body’s way of controlling its immune response. Your child’s body is controlling the temperature and it’s going to fluctuate no matter what you do. The main take home is not to treat fever per se, but your child. There is no reason to make a fever disappear if your child is otherwise acting well, playful, and staying hydrated. But do know there are some fevers that do require a visit with the pediatricians. It’s important to seek care when fever persists after 3 days in infants and children, any fever in a baby 3 month old or less, and if fever is over 104 degrees.

The American Academy of Pediatricians states that not only is there no need to bring down a fever in an otherwise healthy child, but there is a downside risk to treating a fever – it can prolong the illness that originally sparked the high temperature!

7 home remedies to support the immune system and increase comfort levels during a fever:

  1. Calcium
  2. Bone Broth
  3. Gelatin
  4. Herbal infusion
  5. Apple Cider Vinegar
  6. Warm bath
  7. Herbal freezer pops
