In brief: Four signs

If your baby 1) is fretful or irritable for more than 24 hours, 2) has fever that is lasting more than 48 hours, 3) has temperature higher than 103.
5 degrees rectally, or 4) screams and cannot be calmed down in 3 hours.

In brief: Sick child

It really depends on the symptoms.
It would be different for a cold vs a high fever vs vomiting. Call your doctor, explain the symptoms, and let them decide.
