    Thank you. That's really helpful. Oh I don't want to take him to the doctor for a simple cold. I feel like a nut case. I just start worrying that it's more and I am not helping him.

    This is going to sound so dumb but what should I dress him in? He's so hot I don't want to over dress him but I don't want him getting cold.

    We barely made it through the the night so I'm gonna see how he goes for a couple of hours, if he's no improvement or worse I will give health direct a call.
    Thank you.

    I live in a little town near Orange NSW. Gps are hard to come by on weekends out here. Without it costing an arm and a leg.

    It's suppose to be a nice day here but can be cool in the house. I've got him in a singlet, onesie and a thinner jumper and tights. He'd usually wear singlet, onesie and flannie pjs. It's a bit cool inside at the moment but I might move him to a long sleeve suit when it warms up. Thank you. Feel like I have no idea what I'm doing. 😔

    It's really hard to know what to do when you have kids. R&A has given great advice. I will add that if he is really congested the vomiting could be due to the amount of mucous dripping etc (gross I know).

    His temp is definitely going down. He's falling asleep on me so that's a good thing. He wants his dad but he doesn't want to get out of bed so DS is fairly upset.

    That's quite possible and likely as well. Thank you. Just hope he feels better soon.

    When my son had 40 and 41 temps, I took him to the dr (they called me from daycare). The dr said to me that it's not so much the number of the temp that he goes by, it's more the way the child is behaving. He said to me that he is less concerned by the kid with a 41 temp who is sitting up and perky, seems pretty fine than the one who is at 38, but is listless and floppy. That's something I always keep in mind. Also, the newest recommendations are to not give Panadol and nurofen to bring down a fever, as fever is the body's way of making an inhospitable environment for the virus. It helps to get them over it.

    Thank you, DS is definitely not himself but the temps gone down. At least he hasn't vomited since 1230am I think? Just having little sips of water on and off. Very off his food though.
    Wow that's very interesting. Never really thought of it that way.

    I find temps always go up at night too. DS has high temps (always over 40 at night). I do go by how he is acting. Sooky - I get he feels ick and gross. Crying/screaming I get more worried (he was like this 2 weeks ago and was sick for over a week - painful mouth ulcers) as I interpret it as pain for him. Listless, limp - especially not drinking - also would worry me. I'm glad his temp is better. Steam/vapouriser if you can to clear out the mucous. And hugs. I hope you get time out and rest too.

    I take ds to the Drs when he runs high fevers for more than a day, or earlier if he is has symptoms. He currently has a throat infection and had fevers for around 5 days, it was picked up at the second Drs appointment this week. I haven't seen a dr yet who gets annoyed at mums bringing in their bubs. Actually my gp said to me the other day he prefers it if I bring him in just so I know not to worry if anything.

    If you can get him to a dr personally I would go today.

    I see on here all the time advice not to bring down fevers - I always always will. Fevers make me feel so unwell and I have no doubt they make ds feel terrible too. It's more about making him comfortable.

    Hope your LO is better soon.

    Great advice here!!!!

    When my dd1 is vomiting and has fever etc it has been tonsillitis every single time.

    I hope your little one starts to feel better soon, nothing worse for bub and mum no matter what age. X
