Thanks for your query.

Your child is having fever,i advise you to monitor fever 6 hourly.
In case fever is above 100F,give acetaminophen as per dosage (15mg/kg ).
Give plenty of fluids so as to maintain hydration.
In case fever persist get him evaluated by pediatrician.

Wishing your baby good health.
God bless.

General & Family Physician Dr. Michelle Gibson James's  Response
Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

Cronin is paracetamol and can be given every 4-6 hrs if needed, with no more than 4 doses in a 24 hr period. The dose is based on your son's weight. Paracetamol is given at 10 mg to 15 mg per each kg of his weight so that if he weighs 10 kg, he would be given 100 mg to 150 mg at each dose.
I hope this helps
