In brief: Fever, poor feeding

Any fever 100.
4 rectally or higher in a child 2 months or younger is considered a medical emergency. If your child is all of a sudden feeding very poorly, it is also worthwhile to consult your doctor. Severe irritability, new vomiting/diarrhea, rashes, cough, severe runny nose can also be worrisome symptoms of illness.

In brief: Irritability

Irritability, excessive sleeping or fever may be the only sign of babies illness.
Please call if your babies rectal temperature is over 100.4 and discuss the signs with the doctor.
