Depends on age
A new baby (under 3 months) needs to go to a doctor. A 3-12 month baby can have a fever
when there is an infection, and tylenol
) is used (for fevers over 100-101 degrees) to make the baby more comfortable and less fussy.
Parents should observe the older baby to see what symptoms are present, and also talk with the doctor to ask whether the baby should be seen at the clinic or be observed at home.
