Is fever in a newborn always dangerous?
Fever in babies younger than three months old could be a sign of infection and should be brought to a doctor. Because their immune systems are still developing, they are at higher risk for severe infections. If a newborn has a fever of over 38 degrees, please bring him/her to the doctors. Also, if the baby has a body temperature of lower than 35.6degrees, it is also a cause of concern and medical attention is needed.

- 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
