We did give her some milk though. Took her to hospital and said might be slapped cheek,. A virus. No urine infection. Today she has not been sick but is very lethargic and tired. Not wanting to walk anywhere. She doesn't want to drink any water either. Is the tiredness normal?

Hi there ~

I understand your concerns for your baby. I wonder if it was just a viral infection as it might appear like a slapped cheek. Lethargy and tiredness is classical of viral infections. I would advise you to keep your baby hydrated and to not use any medication without a pediatrician's recommendation. I also think that tiredness is normal in viral infections.

I hope this helped and I wish you the very best. Take care!
