Fever in New Born Babies

Fever is a common illness which isn’t given much attention until it gets really uncomfortable or is accompanied by other painful symptoms. Most of the times, it is okay to ignore a light temperature for a couple of days. But that’s adults we are talking about. With infants, one needs to be more careful.

Fever in New Born Babies

When to worry?

If your baby is younger than 3-4 months, fever shouldn’t be taken so lightly. In fact, in infants, fever might not be just because of a caught infection or illness. It can be a symptom of something more serious.

When not to worry?

Commonly, fever in babies can be a reaction to vaccination or because of being at a too warm or cold place. There’s nothing to worry if that’s so. You might want to wait for 24 hours before consulting a doctor. If the baby is uncomfortable, take him/her immediately to the hospital.

When to take your baby to the specialist?

If none of the above circumstances answers for your baby’s fever, you need to consult a new born specialist. If your baby’s body temperature had crossed 100.4 degree on the Fahrenheit scale, don’t wait to consult a doctor.
