Thanks for your query,
It seems you are having severe gastrointestinal tract infection. High fever and dehydration are very dangerous for the baby and may lead to complications. Excessive movement is also a sign of distress.
You should take ORS solution as much as possible to prevent dehydration. You may need antibiotics and antipyretics also. I suggest you to go to hospital early.
Take care and best of luck..
Hope it helps..
