Keep them hydrated – While your child’s body responds to increased temperature as it fights the infection, it is important they remain hydrated. Once the fever takes hold, they will be losing fluids quickly through sweat, and these will need to be replaced. Either water, hydration fluids or milk will suffice, and if you’re struggling to get them to drink, try offering their drink with a straw or in a special cup to make it more interesting and engaging for them.
Let them rest – Encourage your child to rest, allowing their body to get well again. Knowing some effective and easy ways to help cool them down and feel more comfortable will help them relax, recuperate and get back to their usual selves.
