My hubby had to go to work 2 hours earlier today so we woke up ealier then I noticed my 2-yr-old son has a fever and I checked his temperature and it was 38.7 c . He is usually a very active kid but now he's acting like a big baby. It's good to hug him every now and then but now all he wants to do is stay close to me and Ican't do anything else.

hi there friend.. yes, that is really true, being a mother, i really hate if my daughter is suffering from any sickness.. that i feel sorry for her everytime she's crying because she got colds and can't breath normally, i hate it..also, if she's coughing so hard that she can't spit the phlegm, the most worst when she's almost 1, and her teeth is growing, that's the hardest part for her and for me because she has fever, colds and cough and she has loose stools.. it's very alarming for me, but thanks God that it's over, she's 4 now and very active, yes, sometimes she got colds, fever and cough but i can handle that.. i do take care and give her a big hug and always there for her if she's sick.. she's still a baby and needs comfort from me..nice discussion.. happy mylotting!!!

Thanks for your response. Yes, he's still my baby and he'll stay that way even if he turns 40 (lol). What I hate is the feeling of helplessness, the nervousness and the craziness when my son gets sick. It's like something that is out of your hands and you also feel guilty because you feel that in some way somehow you did something wrong that's why he got sick.

I hope he feels better soon, my little girl is three at the end of the month and when she gets sick she wants to cuddle me and not let go I dont mind its not like it lasts for ever and i cant think of anything else more important that I need to be doing when she is sick than comforting her and giving her the extra cuddles she needs when she is feeling so awful. Besides i love a good cuddle when im feeling ill so I can sympathise with how much she needs it from me.

Thanks for your response. Yes, I know what you mean, there's nothing more important than my baby. Sometimes I just feel helpless when he's acting like that.

Well,Illness can't be avoided.Even if we remain cautious,it is likely for the kids to get fever or cold somehow.Whetehr we like it or not we have to take our lovely kids when they are ill.More than medicines,your cuddling and soothing words will get him quickly out of his illness.After all ,he is 2 years old.He is still a baby.Take care.Hope he will be alright the next day morning.

It is very sad when my kids are sick... my son is a very active boy as he is 5 now, but when he was younger he was always active. I knew when he was truly sick because all he would do is lay down, not like him at all. I always sat down by him and we would watch movies... it was mainly him and I most of his life as my hubby travels a bit for work and when home works long days....so it has been him and me through it all. Now we have a daughter that is 1, and I will feel just as bad when she gets sick and do the same thing. The best thing to do is just give them a little medicine and be there for them. I am sorry yours is sick, hopefully he will feel better tomorrow.

Thanks, he's ok now as if nothing happened. And to think I was already panicking yesterday.

My baby is like that when she gets sick. It makes me frantic when she gets sick. The highest temperature that she had was 40c and she was chilling. That was the first time she was hospitalized and was diagnosed to be suffering from UTI. We are now very careful at what she eat and she doesn't wear diapers anymore.

That's so scary when the child is already chilling I wouldn't know what to then.
