    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?

    is today the 3rd day (i mean the 72 hours monitoring)??? Are the symptoms persistent??? but if bb constantly throws up every feed and fever still donx subside, please bring bb back to PD.....

    meanwhile, monitor the fever, try to keep it down.....use fever patch or frequent sponging on top of the fever medi......

    oic, its quite common if bb 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 wad i gathered from your description, yr bb seems fine and the fever shd 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 pd 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 u 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 ur mil too much.. as ur baby's fever is so 'coincidental' alrdy! aft 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 u done all of the above already??? anything else tat PD has advised? Have u seen the PD many times already but still doesnt help???

    i also think u shld either seek a 2nd doc opinion or bring him to KK to check.
    better safe than sorry.
