In brief: Behavior change

In any age, parents are known to recognize illness before it is full blown.
A child may be more grumpy than normal or eyes may "look sick" or skin color may show a subtle hue change that parents begin to recognize as the onset of an illness. Fever, runny nose, diarrhea, cough, decreased appetite may also be early signs.

In brief: Irritability

The ill infant may develop excessive crying, irritability, refuse feedings, or change sleep habits.
The obvious diarrhea, cough, or rash may be easy for you to handle at home or with a call to the nurse.
