How confident are you that you know when to take baby to doctor for cold or fever? Usually, parents aren’t that confident. There just seems to be a lot of things to remember! Is the target fever 103 or 100? What if you make the wrong choice and things get worse?
Deep breaths there, mama.

A Gentle Reminder…
As I’ve said many times before (like at the bottom of every page on this website)…
I am not a doctor. I do not diagnose or prescribe. When in doubt, give Doc a shout!
This means that you shouldn’t rely completely on this free printable to tell you when to take baby to doctor for cold. You’ve got a good gut. Use it!
If you feel like something is off, pick up the phone and give your pediatrician a call. If he gives you a hard time, or makes you feel stupid, there are other medical fish in the sea. Pick a better doctor and leave him in the dust.
