because of the fever and vomiting, we were starting to worry that he was getting dehydrated, so in an attempt to get fluids and pain killers into him, we tried a combination of organic chamomile and peppermint teas with his liquid parcetamol mixed in.
the water was lukewarm for easy absorption, and he was thirsty, so he drank it willingly. i think he also liked it because the peppermint refreshed his mouth after vomiting.
the paracetamol got his fever under control, which was a relief as fevers in babies are always a concern.
he was able to keep this mix down when formula was too much to process, and i think it helped soothe his tummy, relax him, and avoid dehydration.
the little bear is still not himself, but he's managed to eat some solids and take a few formula bottles, so he's definitely improving. hopefully he'll be more himself once these teeth finally break through...
