Hello! I'm sorry to hear you're little boy isn't feeling's no fun, but it certainly won't be that last time! With my children, instead of water..I buy the childrens electrolyte replacement drinks to give them when they are sick...they seem to be more receptive to something with some taste-and they are also getting their hydration. Also, your pediatrician probably gave you the dosage of children's tylenol, so keep an eye on the clock and give dosages every 6-8 hours (depending on the package directions). a cool (NOT cold!) washcloth to the forehead helps, and just be sure to give lots of snuggles!
The fever will clear up on its own in a few days, just hang in there!
