One of my least favorite parts of motherhood is nursing sick children. While I love being able to nurse them back to health with lots of snuggles, kisses, plenty of water and chicken soup, I hate the helpless feeling of just watching my child suffer from a fever and not being able to do much about it. Every time my child catches the cold and comes down with a fever, my heart hurts knowing how horrible my baby feels and I wish over and over again that I can be sick instead.

Yet as a third time mom I know too well that sick babies are an inevitable part of parenthood, that it’s how they get stronger and grow. In fact, fever simply means that my child’s body is doing what it’s supposed to be doing- fighting off an infection or a virus.

Now that the cold and flu season is right around the corner, I want to prepare with the right essentials in my medicine cabinet like thermometers and the best choice of acetaminophen for my baby.

As many of you may already know, acetaminophen is one of the most recommended non-prescription medications by healthcare professionals for temporary fever reduction and relief of minor aches and pain in infants and children.

Acetaminophen is one of the most recommended non-prescription medications by healthcare professionals for temporary fever reduction and relief of minor aches and pain in infants and children.

I know many of us are already familiar with popular acetaminophen brands, but I recently discovered an alternative method of giving my baby the same acetaminophen medication with unique benefits.

FeverAll Infants’ Strength Acetaminophen Suppositories is the only national brand of acetaminophen in suppository form that’s available in three strengths from 6 months to 12 years of age.

FeverAll Infants’ Strength Acetaminophen Suppositories is the only national brand of acetaminophen in suppository form that’s available in three strengths from 6 months to 12 years of age.

The infants’ strength suppositories contain 80 mg of acetaminophen and can be administered in infants as young as 6 months of age. It also contains fewer inactive ingredients compared to leading infants’ fever reducers* and has no parabens, high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors or preservatives.

Most importantly, it allows the parent or caregiver to administer the medicine to babies and children who can’t take the medication by mouth due to vomiting or fussiness, or those who simply don’t like taking liquid medication.

We all know how difficult it is to give medicine to a sick and fussy child, so FeverAll is a great solution that makes those sick days a little easier.

#BeFeverReady Facts

Now that we’ve entered the cold and flu season, here are some facts about fevers that can help you decide which medicine is right for your baby.

  • According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, fever in babies begin at 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • A digital rectal thermometer provides the most accurate reading of your baby’s temperature.
  • In the event your child is unable or unwilling to swallow oral medication, an acetaminophen suppository is a safe alternative way that always provides an accurate dose when use as directed.
  • Always confirm with a rectal temperature reading before administering any fever-reducing medication for most accurate reading.
  • Contact your pediatrician with any questions about your baby’s fever.
  • Fever isn’t something to fear. It simply means the body is doing its natural job of fighting off an infection.
