My baby was hospitalised for 3 days due to having fever for 6 days with cough. Tests done and shows viral. Doc certified him healthy can go home. Discharged on Tues and ytd Saturday admitted again because he started to have fever again on Friday. Highest do far was 38.5. Dr said his lungs and clear, throat ear urine test all shows he's ok but need further test tmr to find out where the fever is from. I'm so worried. I've been exclusively breastfeeding him throughout his stay and feeling so depressed that I can't protect him from the illness. Anyone experience this before?? Recurrent fever? Help...

how old is your baby? my son is the same thing right now though not being admitted. he recently recovered and his fever came back aft 2 days of fever free. doctor said he happen to caught another bug again. by giving him breastmilk is the best thing you can give him already! dont be disheartened about it

Probably when your baby is still so young, they will need to monitor more to prevent an infection or what they would fear mengititis. the second admission is only high fever? anything else? could it be kawasaki?

stay strong, it's common in kids and we often don't really know why. don't over worry, they are tougher than we think
