Dear Niti, l always maintain a temperature chart if my son has fever. The intensity and the frequency of the fever is very important for a doctor to understand the fever pattern of your child. For example, if yesterday the fever came 4 hourly and today it is coming 6 hourly. ..It means the frequency has reduced. The degree of the temperature helps a doctor to comprehend whether it is a viral fever or something else. Please give "water patti ' and full body sponge time to time if the fever is high. Please visit the pediatrician of your baby for proper guidance.

hi Niti Saini! is he suffering from cold,runny nose and / or congestion too? if yes, he feels difficult to breathe while sucking milk that's y he is avoiding your feed. make sure his head is little elevated while feeding also u could put a drop or two of lukewarm water ( please check temperature on your hand,it shouldn't be too hot) mixed with a pinch of salt in each nostril with a dropper. he might sneeze and his clogged nose will open. he will be able to take milk. hope this will be of help to u!
