Q:

I'm suffering from fever since yesterday. Went to doctor, taking medications and doing breastfeeding. Now my baby's body is warm, I suspect it could be fever. Given paracetamol drops to him. do I need to continue same or should I need to take him to doctor? pls suggest..



Saumya Vineeth

if the fever still continue in baby plz go to docter

Dr. Payal M

take Babys temperature with a thermometer. if over 99 give Crocin. continue feeding.

Sonali Shivlani

It is advisable that you visit the doctor with the baby. Give the crocin drops as per the dose prescribed as it is weight dependent. If Temperature exceeds 99 then you can also use tepid water to give a sponge to the baby.

Priya Sood

Monitor your baby's temperature. If it sustains its better to show the doctor.
