Reduce the degree!

Take urgent measures require only such indicators: for the baby the first 2 months of life – 38.0–38.5 ° C (measured under the arm); for a child older than 2 months – 39.0–39.5 ° С; for children at risk (with chronic heart diseases, metabolic disorders, neurological problems, in some other situations specified by the doctor) – 38.0–38.5 ° C; for babies who previously had convulsions in response to an increase in temperature – 38.0 ° C.

There are 2 antipyretics that can be used in children – paracetamol and ibuprofen. But use them carefully.

For example, a child has an ARVI with a fever. If the baby is not at risk and the doctor did not give special recommendations, reduce it during the day by wiping the child with warm water, making wet foot wraps.

If the temperature rises above 39.0 ° C and is accompanied by a headache, attach an ice pack wrapped in a towel to the back of the head.

Do not forget to otpaivat baby and do not wrap it. At night, be sure to measure the child’s temperature. If it exceeds 38.0 ° С under the armpit (39.0 ° С in the rectum), then, most likely, at night it will jump by 1–1.5 ° С.

Put a candle before bedtime (unlike syrup, candles last longer) to protect you from a sharp rise in temperature, pain, and to save yourself from having to wake him in the middle of the night. With ARVI, a high temperature usually lasts 3 days.

If you give medicine to your child only for the night, he will receive only 3 doses for the entire time of the illness (instead of 12, if you gave him the drug 4 times a day).

It is possible to measure the temperature of babies in the armpit, in the inguinal fold, in the rectum, but not in the mouth. An exception is the measurement of temperature using a thermometer dummy. It is desirable that the baby had a personal thermometer.

Do not forget to wipe it with alcohol or warm soapy water.

The temperature measured in the rectum (rectal) is 0.5 ° C higher than that measured in the mouth (oral) and 1 ° C higher than the axillary (or inguinal). The same child may have a large variation in readings.

For example: the normal temperature in the armpit or in the groin is 36.6 ° C; oral – 37.1 ° C; rectal – 37.6 ° C.

It is convenient to measure the temperature in the rectum only for small children: a 5–6-month-old baby will turn out and will not let you do it. If the child resists, take him in your arms and measure the temperature under your arm.

An electronic thermometer is more suitable for measuring rectal temperature; it allows you to do this quickly: you will get the result in 1 minute. A mercury thermometer must be held for at least 5 minutes, and you also risk breaking it if the baby moves.

So, take a thermometer (first mercury shake to a point below 36.0 ° C), lubricate its tip with baby cream. Put the baby on the back, lift his legs with one hand (as if you were rinsing him), with the other carefully insert a thermometer into the anus to make the tip “drown” in it (about 2 cm).

Fix the thermometer with two fingers, and squeeze the baby’s buttocks with others.

In the groin and in the armpit, the temperature is measured with a glass mercury thermometer. The result you get in 10 minutes.

Shake the thermometer to a point below 36.0 ° C. Dry the skin in the folds as moisture cools the mercury.

To measure the temperature in the groin, lay the baby on the flank (if you take measurements under your arm, sit on your knees or take them in your arms and walk around the room with it). Place the thermometer so that the tip is completely in the skin fold, then with your hand, press the foot (handle) of the baby to the body.

If, when you try to measure the temperature, you meet the stormy refusal of the baby, wait until he falls asleep soundly. Carefully place the thermometer under the mouse to the sleeping baby, press its handle to the body and, holding it, sit next to it until the temperature is measured.

Attention! You can not measure the rectal temperature of a sleeping child (just as you can not put a medicinal candle).

The mucosa of the rectum is rich in receptors, their irritation can cause the most unexpected reactions in a sleeping baby.

In it you will find: a digital thermometer with a flexible tip, a thermometer-pacifier (its nipple and nip is no different from an ordinary pacifier, and the baby will not feel the difference) and the classic Philips AVENT pacifier. All thermometers give a clear display of results, turn off automatically, have a battery charge indicator.

You will receive the measurement result in 1 second, about which you will be notified by a sound signal. Sanitary-epidemiological conclusion confirms the safety of the device.

With a moisturizer that also has a soothing and softening effect on the skin. Ingredients – bioactive substances and extracts of yarrow, chamomile and calendula. Wipes do not leave fibers and lumps on the skin.

Do not contain alcohol.
