There is nothing more important than the health and safety of babies and children. When they get sick parents often panic and hope that their child does not have a fever. High fevers in children have been associated with some pretty scary illnesses.
Although not every fever is going to be serious it is important to be able to have a thermometer to check for fevers and give medicine and seek medical attention if the fever is extremely high or does not go away.
