    was it a bad fall?

    You might want to bring him to another doctor for second opinion or request the initial doctor to perform through checking.

    How is the baby? is he/she playing normally or?

    oic, its quite common if baby has cough and throws up milk feeds....las time baber has merlioned so many times and the sight of it really scares me to death lols~~~

    ok from what i gathered from your description, yr baby seems fine and the fever should not be from the fall.....coz normally if babies are affected by the fall, they will cry nonstop, vomit persistently or almost every feed and cannot settle down after feeding etc....

    Hi iynix, how high was the bed? My boy fell from the bed once also but he didn't have a fever. If the fever and vomitting still persists, I really recommend that you bring your baby to another doc for a 2nd opinion. Usually when I tell my pediatrician that my boy had fever and reach clinic no more fever, he will still treat my boy.

    if your son is teething then it might not be due to the fall.
    what you shld do is the monitor his temp n note down the timing n temp.

    Yes, better be safe than sorry. Go for 2nd opinion, or to KK for a checkup.

    Hi iynix,

    Teething fever will not go up to 38.6 degrees. Loss of appetite, fever and vomitting are all signs of the fall having an effect on your baby. And the fever has been persistent for more than 3 days. Please go down to KK. The nurse might not have heard you explaining clearly. It's better to let the doctor know. The doctors will know better.

    pardon me, but pls dont listen to your mother in law too much.. as your baby's fever is so 'coincidental' alrdy! after the fall, he has been having fever and now his appetite decrease... i agree with diymummy, better bring him to hospital for a check.. really not good to delay...

    continue to monitor the temperature, make sure it does not go too high.....

    also dilute the milk intake might help, like if normally 4 spoonfuls to xxx ml, dilute to 3 spoonfuls to xxx ml ?

    and let baby drink more fluids.

    Or have you done all of the above already??? anything else that pediatrician has advised? Have you seen the pediatrician many times already but still doesnt help???

    Your son seems to be hving fever from viral infection(e.g flu), the temperature will go up and down like what you mentioned. Furthermore you mentioned he has cough and phlegm, which means he has not fully recovered from his previous flu infection. I do not think it's the fall that is causing the fever.

    If there is too much phlegm in his lungs, he will vomit it out which it is the body's natural reflex to purge out whatever substance that is not supposed to be in the body. If you would like to try out traditional chinese medicine, it will help to dissolve your son's phlegm. Both my kids are take traditional chinese medicine whenever they are sick, it helps to dissolve the phlegm and they have never vomited phlegm. You can pm me for contacts.

    For the time being, keep your baby warm and do not bathe him. Use a warm towel and wipe him. Make sure he do not get chills as this will make his fever go higher. Give him liquid food as he will not have appetite during fever. You can dilute his milk so that it will be easier for his stomach to digest. Give him a few small meals a day so that he can digest his food or else he will vomit it out cos his stomach can't take a lot of food right now. By keeping your son warm, it'll help him to perspire and will bring down his temperature. Do not let your son sleep in air con, you can have the fan blowing up to improve air circulation, but not directly at him. Hope this helps.

    Re: Help...my baby is having fever after a fall from bed..

    My baby had a fall from the bed too, but no fever and vomitting, Was worried too cause ppl say if vomit within 24hrs should bring him to doc. He is now teething but only diarhoea no fever. So far like 3wks now the teeth not fully out yet.. dont wait any longer to see doc if the fever still persist.

    Congrats on yr second pregnancy.. Take Care
