I certainly freaked out. My baby just reeached the temperature 39.8 and I really freaked out. Just .2 points and its already 40 degrees. Before she slept she was okay. My husband said she was hot but I told me she was cold because her palm is cold. (my mom told me that ever since I was young, what she always did to know if I have fever was to put my hand to her hear. Even when I was teenager already she still does that. ) I placed a thin blanket to her legs because it was really a cold weather and it was raining all day. So what I did was go to the computer. When she cried a bit I fed her and pissed a bit because she kept on spitting her milk and so I left her and went back to my laptop. I saw her getting my husband blanket to her body. I didn’t mind. My husband placed the the electric fan toward me. Then when she cried a bit when I got near her, man, she was blazing hot. My husband ignored me. I gave her paracetamol and checked her temperature, it was 39.8. Gaaaah! She reached 39.8 in less than an hour?? Since my husband ignored me I knocked at my autie’s room and asked her if its okay to wash her body with a wey cloth. Then she panicked a bit to and asked me to get a cold water with ice and that’s when my husband started to help me. She was really hot. She didn’t want anyone but me. Also, my husband told me that was she was shivering or shaking a while ago but didn’t told me. Damn. But she’s okay now after we washed her with wet cloth. But still, I’m not gonna sleep especially that she kept on looking for her breastfeed. Good that I’m used to staying up late! 🙂
Mom’s out there, what do you advice?
