Child has fever, weakness, cannot stand up. What to watch for?

Hi! I have an 11 month old baby boy who has a low grade fever (100.0). He is sleeping alot and suddenly seems pretty weak. he is usually very active all the time (walks nonstop) and since his almost 4 hour long nap this afternoon, can barely stand up. We just moved to a new state and my husbands health insurance for the family doesn t kick in until the 15th. I am wondering what to watch for and if I need to take him into an urgent care.

is the baby having any other symptoms like fast breathing? or loose stools? does he cry when he urinates? is he taking feeds regularly? in case the baby is having any of the above symptoms you must take the baby to a peadiatrician immediately.if none of the above is there ..then give him some paracetamol syrup around 5 ml assuming his weight is around 8 to 9 kgs.
