Hi Tamera. I have a toddler who gets sick often because he's in daycare. It's almost impossible to know what's going on until you take him in to urgent care or make an appt. with his doctor. I know it's frustrating and scary at times, but I also suggest calling a nurse advice line (usually the hospitals have them or your insurance carrier...even Medicaid). They will offer some advice and let you know if it's something urgent. The best advice I can give you is to always go with your gut and when in doubt...take him in sooner rather than later.
