    anout an hour ago Jakes temp suddenly shot up to 39 degrees, then 40 degrees a while later. Then I noticed a rash on his body and face. his cheeks are red but he is fine in himself. Ive spoken to a nurse at NHS Direct who said to give him calpol and see if his temp goes down. He got me to drag my fiunger over the rash, it faded to thats ok. he said its most likely a virus.

    Please tell me me your good experiences :pray:

    He woke us up crying at 4am this morning. We gave him calpol and another feed and offered him some water. We put him back to bed still hot but he had fallen to sleep. This morning his temp is normal but he seems to be a bit chesty.
