Home Remedies for Toddler Fever
Toddlers develop a fever from time to time in response to an infection that their body may be fighting. While a fever is something that can help fight off that infection, it is usually best to treat the fever along with the symptoms of the illness that your toddler is experiencing.
One of the quickest ways to lower a fever is to give your toddler a lukewarm bath for about 5 to 10 minutes. You should make sure that the water is warm enough so that they do not become cold in the bath, however. If they become cold and begin to shiver, their body temperature will begin to rise.
After their bath, you can dry them off carefully and dress them in light pajamas. Make sure that you do not wrap them in a heavy blanket because this can also cause their temperature to rise. Instead allow them to lie either without a blanket or with a thin covering to keep them comfortable.
You can also keep your home a little cooler to help them stay more comfortable as well. This can help keep their fever lower and may help them feel more comfortable while they are resting. Rest is also another important item to administer when your toddler has a fever so that their bodies are able to fight the infection better.
Home Remedies for Toddler Fever,
Be careful when and how you use it
I bought into the hype and broke down and tried this product. After all, how can you resist something that claims that the fat is literally taken out of some of the food that you eat! I must say, though, pay attention to the directions on the package. I used it for a few days with none of the negative effects that many people experience. But during those times I ate fairly healthy meals and nothing too fatty. Then I went out with friends and didn't think about the fact I had taken these pills. I ate chicken wings, blue cheese and french fries. And spent most of the night and a good portion of the next day with several occasions of racing to the bathroom because of digestive issues. I suppose it shows that it does remove "stuff" from your diet because I sometimes have issues going at all and with using this product I went several times a day. But is it worth the risk? Besides, I have no idea if taking the pill was making a difference in my weight loss or if I was having success because I was being more careful in my food choices leading to lower calorie intake.
Weight Loss through Fear of Embarrassment
Was excited to try Alli, heard such great things. Did not see anything for the first couple days I took this. Then came the HORRIBLE side effects. Oily, greasy residue in your underwear and the toilet, and the smell. Oh my gosh. It was awful. Talk about eating healthy - for fear of what this will do to you. Didn't even finish the first bottle it was so terrible.
