Doctor :  
and as per the history provided by you
Doctor :  
he is urinating more in evenings and mornings
User :   s
Doctor :  
and he takes more fluids
Doctor :  
with no pain on passing urine
Doctor :  
it is a normal phenomenon for some babies
Doctor :  
when they are stressed or if there is any change in their routine activities, they tend to manifest it in this way
Doctor :  
as you said that the baby is already been examined by a pediatrician,
Doctor :  
and that he told he is normal
Doctor :  
there is no need to worry
User :   will it continue like this or as he grows it will reduce
Doctor :  
for some babies it resolves on its own
User :   there are times he passes urine every 5 mins also
Doctor :   it will reduce as he grows up
User :   in between his urine was yellowish
User :   he had fever after that its normal
User :   colur
Doctor :  
usually if the child is tense, you can relax him by giving more time to the baby
Doctor :  
ok
Doctor :  
is the fever resolved now?
User :   should i keep a watch on him or something like that
Doctor :  
how is the urine color now?

reassuring the child helps them in geting back to normal pattern

Doctor :  
since the child is fine and there was no specfic finding during examination by the pediatrician,
Doctor :  
i suggest that you can wait and watch
Doctor :  
and in the meantime give a little more love and care to the baby, try to spend more time with him to reassure him
Doctor :  
this will help him to be fine
User :   ok
User :   one more thing
Doctor :  
in case this problem still persists

yes if this problem still persists, then you should take the baby for re-examination to the pediatrician
Doctor :  
at that time , the baby might need a ultrasonic examniation

to see for the size of the bladder

as few babies with small bladder also present with this kind of history, but for them even the night time frequency will increase
User :   ok

and take take the baby for examination again to the pediatrician if the problem keeps persisting.

User :   k
Doctor :  
when was the last time the pediatrician examined the baby?
User :   16th of augst
Doctor :  
ok
User :   i had taken him for measles vaccination
Doctor :  
so you can wait for another 15-30 days and then take for checkup
Doctor :  
in the menatime,
Doctor :  
if the baby is developing pain during passing urine, or excess cry when passing urine
Doctor :  
or if the baby has fever again more than 99 degrees
