Is fever in a newborn always dangerous?
A fever in babies can be one of the scariest symptoms for parents, especially when that fever is high or the baby is only a few weeks old. A fever isn't an illness -- it's a symptom of one. A fever usually indicates that the body is fighting an illness. If your baby has a fever, in most instances it means he has picked up a cold or other viral infection. Although they are less common in infants, pneumonia, urinary tract infection, ear infection, or a more serious bacterial infection, meningitis, may be causing a fever. If required, please proceed to the nearest hospital.Read more

- Hi mummies, what would you do if baby is having fever and they always vomit out all the paracetamol?
Keep your baby hydrated.. as long as baby gets enough fluid...if the fever is too high...i used to give my son the bullet that is inserted in the anus because he cant hold his meds when given orally but must be prescribed by doctor ya.Anonymous
