Sponge with a damp towel (room temp water) every 15min. Feed baby regularly and ensure baby’s drinking milk well. Monitor the activity level and mood (baby should still be active/alert when the temp comes down) Check the temp hourly. If the temp doesn’t come down within 1-2 days despite the fever meds, or baby is lethargic or not feeding well or has seizures, may need to go to Children’s emergency.
