That sounds very frustrating. We were lucky that my dd didn't have any
fevers while in her band, but it isn't something you can really
control. Especially if your little one is in daycare - since they tend
to get exposed to more. Sydney had roseola too, and the fever is
scary. Luckily in our case she was older and out of her band.
Does his band still fit after6 mo? My dd wore her starband for 5 mo
which I think is on the longer side. If he's wearing it when he can
then you're doing the best you can. I'm hoping he'll stay healthy and
grow quickly for the next month or two.
