A had her 3rd set of jabs this morning, and her temperature has been around 36.5 all day up until just now when it's gone up to 37.7. I've given her 2.5ml of calpol (which thankfully she yummed up), but I have a few questions...
How long should it be before her temperature comes down? what should i do if it doesn't...just another dose in 4 hours? Should i then check her through the night (even if she's asleep?)
She normally has a bath at bedtime, but I don't want it making her too cold (or hot?). I'm not sure i'd want a bath if I had a temperature...
I'm feeding her (bf) whenever she wants to keep her hydrated.
Is there anything else I should be doing? She never got a temp with her other jabs, so not sure what to expect..!

I'd recheck temp 30/40 mins after calpol, tbh the numbers are irrelevant, if she's 37.7 and happy, bright and alert then fine but 37.7 and upset, not feeding, unresponsive then that's a different story

Its been 1hr15 mins and its not come down at all, but she seems ok...alert, happy enough. Will just re-dose her at bedtime if its still not come down and hope it comes down overnight
Thanks CP :)
