    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    No, just stay home. Did your pedi give you dosing instructions for tylenol?

    It's best to take care of a low fever at home. The hospital is not a pretty place for an infant. Call your doctor's after hours number if you need help. If that's not an option, usually the ob unit you delivered your baby at will have a nurse available to take calls and answer questions.

    If you are too frightened, then take your baby to the ER, but I don't recommend it. A fever is a good thing - it means your baby's body is fighting something off. Just try to keep him comfortable and get in touch with the doc.
