In brief: 1 symptom

Fever is just one symptom and you need to look at the whole picture.
Does your baby appear weak, not eating or drinking or just not acting right? Or is your baby still playing, eating and drinking and has no other symptoms? The first set of symptoms means your child is very sick and needs to see a doctor now in the er. The second set means your baby can wait to be seen in clinic tomorrow.
