After several unsuccessful attempts at juice, water and cold cloths it dawned on me: water play!
With Baby B on my hip, I put a small amount of water in the only clean tupperware, grabbed a spoon from the drawer and threw a dish towel on the kitchen floor.
Baby B immediately wanted the spoon. I set him down and he quickly went to work scooping and stirring the water. While he was engrossed, I used both hands (yay!) to find a larger towel, a plastic tub and a couple of other water safe items.
We are still battling this darn fever but I’m sure Baby B will be well again soon. Until then, the kitchen floor will stay water play central.
