Discussed Kaia was a preemie and spent 13 days in NICU for feeding issues. Since she had no respiratory issues then, Dr. Webster is leaving treatment decision up to "mother's intuition."
I opt to monitor fever and respiratory effort at home; if increases, will take to ER. Dr. Webster also mentioned fevers tend to rise in afternoon/evening hours, so Kaia may not find relief right away. Will call Angel Kids @ 8am to schedule appointment.
