In brief: Viral infection
Your description sounds like a viral infection.
If persistent symptoms occur, enlargement of the spleen are noted, or other problem, testing for mono can be performed by your doctor.

In brief: Mono in infants
Mono in infancy is usually no more involved than a minor flu.
Of course baby can be sickly & have hydration issues but the illness usually resolves within a week or so and confers immunity to the germ. In teens or adults mono can put you in bed for a month & really disrupt your life.
