It's just awful when they are ill. If she has a high temp it's good to strip them down to their nappy or nappy and vest. Also if not allergic give a children's paracetamol from your local pharmacist. It's hard at this age because they can't tell you how they feel.

Do you have an ear thermometer as these are most accurate. Monitor temp and if you can't bring it down get her to the Doctors.

George had his first high temp recetly of 40 and gave him calpol and wouldn't come down and wouldn't stop crying. Rushed him to the doctors and guess what he was fine. Temp down, chatting away tot he doctor.

Hope your little one is fealling better sonn.

If you are struggling to keep her temperature down, I was told to alternate calpol and nurofen 2-3 hours between each one. I found nurofen worked quickest, so would give that first, and if it didnt come right down, or started going back up I would then give calpol.
