He's sick, pulled a 100-101 fever all night (i slept while my boyfriend stayed up) when I woke up at 5 am took his temperature and flipped. Gave him Tylenol, and it brought it down to 98.5 for the next four hours. He's been doing fine, looks great. But why does he puke when I try to help him now? He's teething so he has a lot of saliva already, so is it just too much for him to take?

The last time my little guy was sick, he puked every time I tried giving him tylenol, sucking boogers out (it can gag them if they have a lot of mucous) and bath times. Just make sure you water his formula/breast milk down. If you can, try giving him 1 oz pedialyte, 2 oz water. That should help with the draining and his tummy. Hope he feels better!
