So I know the science behind not medicating for fevers and so unless ds has been in discomfort we haven't given him any pain medication to reduce his fever. Dd is sick right now (some form of bronchiolitis - could be RSV, the flu, etc) and is running a fever. I find that each time that one of them is sick that even though I know why not to give fever reducers, I still struggle not to give it to them. Mainly, because I was raised that if you had a fever you took pain meds. I find that I have to talk myself down repeatedly from the "ledge" and concern over them being sick and me not giving them any medicine. Anyone else? Does this ever go away?
