Hmmm: I would seek a second opinion or if you really trust your pediatrician, perhaps i would gently ask for blood tests called a CBC with differential, sed rate, and crp. If truly all of these tests are negative, make sure you keep all of your well child check appointments for further monitoring.

Think urinary tract : For unexplained fevers in children it is good to exclude a urinary tract infection. After six weeks of fevers, it it necessary to look harder for a cause and i would recommend you schedule another appointment with your pediatrician.

Baby fevers: If your child is having fevers up to 101.9 daily for 6 weeks, you should be taking your child to the hospital for a complete evaluation. This is never normal, especially if this is happening every day continuously.
