My baby is 10 months old and has a fever

Patient

Q: My baby is 10 months old and has a fever of 101. should i wake her from her sleep?

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com

I understand your concern.
As long as she is breathing fine and not hyperventilating, and you have given her paracetamol to bring the fever down, you do not need to wake her up.
Just observe her abdomen and keep a count on her respiratory rate.

Hope this was helpful,
Regards
