What to do when the kid catchs cold or fever.

Syndrome with cold and fever: for the first two days, the kid starts to have running nose. It may comes with a fever or not depending on the kid’s immune systems. After two days or so, the fever goes away, but the kid may still have stuffy nose or starts coughing. In a week, it becomes better. After two weeks, the kid gets back normal. Most of the time the fever comes at the night time. It depends on the situation, I try to avoid Ibuprofen if it is not over 103( for little babies, 100).
Things I usually do:
1.  Give the kid a steam, warm bath. it helps reduce the syndrome of stuffy nose and sore throat. It is a great way for the kid to relax too.  
2. The kid doesn't have good appetite for sure. Don’t try to feed him so much solid food if he doesn't want. Let him have more milk.
3. Fruits and juice are better choices. I let my kid have apple juice and pear juice. They are good source of Vitamin C. Also pear juice can easy inflammation of throat. We all love this one:
4. Being hydrated. Drink more water and pediatric electrolyte. My son likes the purple one a lot:
5. Have enough sleep and relax.

6. If you worry a lot, go to see the doctor.
