Doctor: There are certain signs you need to watch out for when your baby is having an illness. If you observe that your baby ref uses feed, is unusually lethargic, has fever ( an oral temperature of 102 F 38.9 C) or higher, has loose or watery stools, multiple episodes of vomiting and hasn’t wet the diaper for 6 or more hours, contact a doctor right away. In your case baby’s case, due to the fact that she is lethargic, I would definitely advise having her checked by a pediatrician.
