How to Comfort Kids and Babies with a Fever

How to Comfort Kids and Babies with a Fever

Fever. It’s the one common symptom that every parent inevitably faces, and in most cases, it’s not a sign of anything serious. But as parents who worry, everything feels big when our little ones are sick. And all that really matters is making them feel “all better” as quickly as we can. While most fevers are harmless and caused by mild infections, it’s important to be prepared and know the signs. Let’s tackle this together with facts and treatments to get babies and kids back on track and parents back to breathing a sigh of relief. When their fever breaks – we all feel “all better.”


A fever usually means the body is fighting an illness and your little one’s immune system is working correctly. If your baby or child has a fever, it most likely means they’ve gotten a virus, or some other possible infection and their little body is fighting it.

What’s normal?

A normal temperature can range from about 97 to 100.3 F while most doctors consider a rectal temperature of 100.4 F or higher to be a fever. It’s never a bad idea to take your little one’s temperature when they’re well to gain some context. And as always, it’s important to monitor and help comfort your little ones until the fever breaks. If your child has a fever, it’s essential to know the signs and know when to seek medical care.

How to comfort a feverish baby or kid…

  • Try a cool towel and put it on their back or neck. You might even get a smile.
  • Give them a lukewarm bath. It’s good for the fever and it just feels nice.
  • Offer lots of fluids. Even though your child may resist, try water, juice, milk, or even popsicles for older kids to add some fun and color. For babies, try to offer the breast or bottle more often, as a fever can cause dehydration.
  • Keep them dressed in light, cool clothes
  • Acetaminophen can help provide relief. We recommend Mommy’s Bliss NEW Infants’ and Children’s Acetaminophen to reduce fever and ease body aches.

Be sure to check your little one’s temperature after administering the above.

Call the doc if your little one…

  • Is under 3 months.
  • Has a fever over 102 and is 3 months old or older (especially if they are under 2 years old)
  • Is unusually lethargic, not responsive or has problems breathing or eating
  • Has a rash
  • Shows signs of dehydration, such as fewer wet diapers, a dry mouth, no tears when they cry, or a sunken soft spot on the head
  • Is vomiting or has longer term diarrhea
  • Is unusually sleepy or fussy
  • Has had a fever for more than 72 hours

Keep NEW Mommy’s Bliss Infants’ and Children’s Acetaminophen handy for pain and fever relief. This is the first-ever Clean Label Project Certified acetaminophen, and it’s what we give our own family to ease our little ones and quickly reduce their fever. Feels good to know we’re in this together. We call it Medicine for Peace of Mind.
