At Home Care
If your child is ill, the best thing to do is to keep them comfortables. Sick children get very tired and need plenty of rest. Unless they are very sick or have to follow doctor’s orders to stay in bed, most young children will not want to. They might feel better on the sofa with a blanket, either way, keep the room well ventilated.
It is essential to monitor your child’s symptoms, including sore throat, earache, cough, rash, vomiting, or diarrhea.
Fluid intake is vital for sick children. In particular, if your infant is missing feedings and producing fewer wet diapers.
Try to give your child time for quiet games, stories, company, and comfort.
In general, you should follow your doctor’s advice on how to keep your child comfortable while he/she is sick.
