My daughter just turned 6 months old and im not sure if she's teething yet. She takes acid reflux meds and has had tummy issues since she was born, but today she has been sleeping a ton and now she has a fever of 102.5! I called the dr but the office is closed. Any suggestions? I gave her Tylenol which hasnt appeared to help, but its still early. Should I go to the ER?

I would go to the ER its a high fever... dont want to wait and put your baby through anymore pain... if its nothing its nothing but if something is wrong you want to help!!!

If you have given something to reduce fever and it made no difference after an hour, go to the doctor. Better to come home and know it was nothing than discover it is something serious and you did nothing.

It very well could be teeth. They can start showing up around 24 weeks. But I would take her to the ER...you can never be too safe, especially with little ones. Fevers can be dangerous. Some ppl tell me I'm a worrier, but I wouldn't mess with a fever. I'd rather be told it's teeting by a doc and know over something serious happening.
