Control the fever: You can alternate the paracetamol with Ibuprofen every three hours so that the child will get a dose of fever medication every 3 hours (paracetamol every 6 hours, and Ibuprofen every six hours. Please make sure you give appropriate dose of Ibuprofen which is 10mg/kg/dose. If the fever persists or gets high > 102' f you can also use wet sponges to the head and limbs. See your doc in morning.

Careful Fluid Rx: Depends on the cause and severity of high sodium, and if the baby has had any symptoms. High normal sodium is around 145 millimols/l. Anything above that should be treated early with fluids with proportional sodium, at daily maintenance or higher rates depending on severity. The sodium in the blood should not be dropped too quickly, as it is dangerous for brain. Consult your pediatrician also.
