When to Call the Pediatrician

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, in general, you should call your pediatrician if your: 1  Infant under three months of age has a rectal temperature at or above 100.4 degrees F Fever persists for more than 24 hours in a child younger than 2 years old. Fever persists for more than 3 days in a. If your baby is 3 months or younger, though, you should call your pediatrician at the first sign of illness, since colds can quickly turn into something more serious, like bronchiolitis, croup, or. If your child is 12 weeks old or younger, you want to call your pediatrician if his or her temperature is above 100.4 degrees F. If your child is older, you may want to call if he or she has a fever between 102–104 degrees and is acting weak, sick, or the temperature is lasting for a few days. If you’re still concerned or are prompted to do so by your doula or others, call your pediatrician.

As we said before, they’ve seen and heard it all. They know that first time parents, in particular, will worry about the slightest thing and, frankly, they’re probably expecting your call!In general, you should call your pediatrician or seek medical attention for a fever when: A newborn or infant under two to three months old has a temp at or above 100.4 F (38.1 C)—seek immediate attention from your doctor or go to the emergency room. An infant that is three to six months old has a temp at or.

Using humor and real-world conversations, we have launched the #CallYourPediatrician campaign, which aims to reach parents with timely reminders that going to the pediatrician, even during COVID-19,is important and safe. Click on each campaign to find everything you need to share on your own platforms and. Now that you’re nearing the end, it’s time to put the same amount of careful attention toward choosing a pediatrician for baby. (We suggest settling on baby’s doctor by your seventh or eighth month to avoid waddling in and out of endless doctors’ offices during those last few weeks.). Start looking for pediatricians while you’re still pregnant—preferably between 28 and 34 weeks along. “It’s important to have a pediatrician you’ve already met and respect, because you have enough. The exception is when your child is under 3 months old.

In this case, even if the fever is low, take your child to the doctor immediately. Vomiting/Diarrhea — Like a fever, these symptoms are inevitable. If they don’t last, then they’re nothing to worry about. If your child has been exposed to COVID-19, or you are concerned about your child’s symptoms, call your pediatrician immediately. Sometimes it’s hard to tell how sick your child is.

Luckily, a trip to the hospital is usually not needed for a simple cold or cough, mild diarrhea, constipation, temper tantrums, or sleep.

  • I love people… my parents are very supportive and have warned me of the potential risks and yet positives of entering medicine… my problem is not being allergic to hard work but instead not knowing how to slow down and take a rest…. The main thing for me is that I have so many interests outside of medicine medicine is interesting to me and perhaps if I invested more time into researching it I could slowly learn to appreciate it more…. thank you for this video
    from the UK

  • Tbh, I entered medical school because it’s my parents’ dream. I want to see them happy, but my feelings is kinda messed up… one time I think I kinda like this route, other time I think this major is not for me. Anatomy is fine but pathology is really hard for me to memorize. It’s one of reasons why I wanted to quit it sometimes… I felt like the word ‘Doctor’ is a huge responsibility and I felt I don’t deserve that position since I’m quite forgetful. However, I’m in year 4 now… there’s no going back I guess

  • Hello? Is there somebody who is currently on first year as a med student? I can’t stop thinking how to survive in this school really, I can’t stop crying

  • I wanna be a doctor, partly because my family wants me to become the first doctor in the family. I’m taking BSN right now, and this is essentially my Pre-Med. Am I taking the right path here? I’m rather confused right now.

  • Just like every other people on the comment section’s parents, my parents are also forcing me to become a doctor. I am actually pretty good in math and I loved programming and was very good at it when I was in highschool. I have also imagined myself as a software engineer and I honestly just can’t imagine myself wearing a white lab gown stethoscope and all the med stuff. I don’t do well in group projects.. heck even in group lab performances I suck.. but alone, I’m excellent (at least I think I am lol). I’m a third year now majoring in medical laboratory science. I have told my parents that I won’t be going to med school but they won’t listen (toxic? i know) i have been telling them ever since I was young but still enrolled me to a pre med school.. I never really wanted to do anything at that time actually I wasn’t really sure about life as an adult at all.. but now I wanted to pursue programming and I am contemplating whether I should enroll myself to computer science or continue medicine.. I’ve always wanted to work alone and with little to no human interactions I thought I could do programming as a sideline while being a medical technologist.. think that could work?

  • I’m definitely quite appreciative for this channel to make this video. However now I have lost so much confidence, whether I should go into medicine or not.


  • I am terrible at maths and physics but i still want to be doctor. Can i still become doctor if i am bad at mathematics or physics?����

  • So apparently a single parent is not qualified as a Doctor to be. Do to is basically impossible to work to provide for you and your child and have enough time to study and sleep.

  • 3:41 “Be warned not all patients are kind of appreciative of your work” being appreciative makes us forget all the effort and hard work we paid and a lil bit of satisfaction boost? i say. Sometimes unappreciative seniors make working 100x unhappier.

  • I’ve no intention of becoming a doctor and actually I’m studying accounting, but I opened this video to see if that’s me or not lool

  • Parents here want us to become a doctor because it’s the highest marks university in our country but literally one of the lowest incomes job. Online shop these days make money more than doctors. And people treat us as disgusting and try to avoid these days because of covid��.

  • I don’t have the greatest work ethic but I think that can be changed to be honest my problem is that I can’t see the future with me as a doctor. ((I CAN SEE IT BUT WHAT I MEAN IS THAT I CANT see how its done)) for example if I was to become a teacher I can see myself in front of a board teaching if I was a doctor i can see myself in front of a patient I just can’t see the setting or the patients face or the hospital I would work at everything seems so blurred ���� please someone help me with this

  • I don’t know what the fuck I’m gonna do with my life cause from day 1 my parents and everyone else made me consider myself as a doctor and nlw i have no other image of myself yet not sure that being a doctor is even what i want

  • I want to become a veterinarian and am a sophomore in getting good grades and trying all my best when I go to college and finish 4 years I’ll do anything to get good grades and be accepted in a med school

  • I wanna be a doctor because i was the “defective” of the family so ive been to sooo many doctors and specialists and i just wanna give back and do the same for others like my primary care doctor who always cared,

  • I became a doctor just because I literally don’t have any other choice. Having the high mark and every friend I know is applying it and I ended up here. But I learned to love it, the profession, the field and some people in it

  • As a lazy, unmotivated, unintelligent, and unkind person, thank you for confirming what I already knew, YouTube algorithm. I ain’t cut out to be a doctor.

  • I m a med student
    And i think this video is horrible, really! You should be ashamed to do such disinformation. Life is not so simple and be a doctor is a job, is not what we are but what we do.
    You are forcing people to alienate themself. Shame on you. And guess what people are all different, and differences are a value also in your career your own little attitudes are a strength. You made me sick with this stupid and alienating generalization. STOP OFFENDING PERSONALITY AND INDIVIDUALITY OF PEOPLE.

  • I was definitely not motivated at first. Had a bit of a break in between bc University was just a bit of a mess. I’m super motivated to work hard and put more diversity in medicine. I dont think we do enough, and seeing racist doctors thrive with malpractice, im more motivated to take their place. I don’t care if my work isn’t credited, I’m willing to work super hard for it.

  • Deep down I want to become a singer and dancer but my parents wouldn’t like that so I just have to stick with becoming a gynecologist. As much as I want to help women by becoming a gynecologist, I just feel like the road will be tough and rough because I don’t like studying and these days I don’t really feel the zeal about being a gynecologist anymore.

  • As an asian, I’ll never let my children study medicine. The fees r so freaking expensive. Unless they r good enough to get into public uni.

  • Every path you take there will always be a challenge, the riskier the path is, the more harder the challenge is. But i know most of the population are willing to do it for the sake of our humanity. I live in Asia, but my family doesn’t want to choose the path for me (my mom would always say “it’s up to you”), they want me to go to the path that I’m willing to take and the most important thing about it, that it’ll makes me happy for doing so. I have 0 interest on going to a med school. I’m more interested in Historical events!

  • still trying to figure out where Cristina yangs mother came from cause she has no interest in Cristinas job unlike some other Asian parents

  • I am already in depression partly because of the pressure of Maths,Physics,Chemistry.If someone forces me to go to med school I sure as hell gonna suicide.I am scared of blood and any type of medical equipments:)

  • I feel like anyone can put in hard work when they’re passionate about what they’re doing. If somebody truly wants to become a doctor and help people, they should do it.

  • To me, working socializing and personal socializing work differently. At work I’m more proactive but if its on my own, I’m more closed off. I want to bdcome a nurse then a nursing practitioner. Its my ultimate goal for job.

  • I want to go in med school but we dont have enough money to afford that kind of course. So sad i will never be a doctor in the future

  • I hate people. I hate having to explain the obvious. I have a short fuse but i am also hreat in masking my anger. Im planning on going to med school next school year because I love helping those who cant help themselves. Should I still do it?

  • I m in my final yr of medical school because after seeing this video I feel discouraged. I know how hard it is medicine but it’s not what you described here it’s graphical knowledge if you love to learn love your profession you will not feel that work overload. Always open your mind to learn something different new.

  • I love how people are so determined about their future. I’m not interested in anything, i go to school, i study, i do this and that. The only thing that i really enjoyed is drawing. I aware of my future going to be if i only draw. My parents are doctors, and ofc they want me to be a doctor and so do my siblings. Not only them, my teachers too. Anyway, don’t mind me
    Good luck to all people!

  • i wanted to go into medicine but things like this are scaring me away from the field. i wanted to be a clinical psychologist because helping people is something ive done all my life, but i dont want to get burnt out and i dont want to get discouraged and stuff. idk what to do

  • I just don’t know what else I can do in life, I want a stable and well paying job, and I’m pretty good at learning medical knowledge and remembering it, but at the same time, I don’t want to learn for another 12 years. I feel trapped

  • If people have their interest on the particular thing nothing can stop them and nothing is imposible. The word impossible is for those ones who r scared of the world. And the people who r never scared of doing things r the ones who see the word impossible into: i m possible. Thank u!

  • According to my exprience, this was completely true. But what is the solution for people who lack these and have already entered the medical school?
