Is there something I can do to prevent the fevers before they start during the teething process?

    We were told that teething doesn’t actually cause fevers. It’ll raise their body temperature but once it crosses that 100.4 threshold, then there’s something else going on.

    I also agree, teething doesn’t usually come along with a fever, but ever baby handles those pesky teeth different! Depending on how old little one is, I would suggest a small dose of children’s Tylenol. I think you can pull-up a dosing chart on google. Or if you want, the pediatricians usually have 24 hour advice nurses that are incredibly helpful!! I pester my on call nurses all the time if I’m not sure what to do, or feel like my momma instinct just isn’t cutting it!!!
