Seeing your child suffer through any type of illness is a scary experience. Here are some tips on what you can do and telltale signs when you should bring your child to the doctor:
- When your baby show a sign of an allergy bring him to the doctor at once, because an allergy is a reaction caused by the immune system when it overreacts to certain substances.
- When babies cry relentlessly for almost three hours several times a week, this is a sign that your baby is suffering from colic. Try to massage and rub her tummy in a clockwise direction for comfort.
Any temperature reading higher than 37.8C is a fever and once your baby has a fever bring him to the pediatrician. As you may be uncertain of what has caused this. When your baby is not feeling well or grumpy, call your pediatrician to immediately. Don’t give your child any medicine without your pediatricians consent.
