I use the Seattle Children's Hospital guideline for breaking a fever which essentially is don't. I control fevers by continuously wicking as much heat away as I can. Today I spent the better part of the day skin-to-skin with a 40lb "baby." When the spot he was on heated up I moved him to a cooler spot on my body. Sounds sweet but it gets old after about 10 minutes. :) I watched A LOT of Netflix on my phone to pass the time.
During fever breaks he watched TV, drank smoothies, and slept.
