Baby's First...Fever?

My lowercase had his 4 month physical this morning (at 7:40 am -- WHAT was I thinking???). He was poked, prodded, weighed, thoroughly discussed and then given his four vaccines.

He weighed in at 9 lb 5 oz and 22 inches long. His head circumference is now on the 7th percentile curve. His length and weight are nearing the curve. The ped is quite happy with his progress.

And then tonight he got his first fever. When it hit 100.5, we called the doctor to find out what dose of infant Tylenol he should take. It's dropped since his first dose at 8:30pm, but it is still above 99 when he typically runs around 98.0-98.3.

It's breaking my heart to see my little man not feeling well. And first thing tomorrow morning, he gets his eyes dilated to do an ROP check followed by a Synagis shot to fend off the evil RSV at noon. My poor, poor little man.

Awwww, hugs to mommy and boy! May you both feel happier and better soon.
Hope he's feeling better soon. Sometimes vaccines can cause a fever after, hopefully it has passed now.

Good luck with the ROP check.

He's a trooper! Hooray for his good visit.
Are they still going to do the shot if he's been running a fever?
Is everything okay with the little guy? Hope his fever was nothing serious. I am always afraid my guys are coming down with something, and I know that first fever will probably freak me out. Anyway, I hope the lowercase is doing better.
