Pediatrician 's  Response
4mths old with high grade fever would get delirious and definitely would moan in confusion.It Is very safe to give Crocin or Paracetamol in right dose according to the weight to babies every 4hrly if fever is there.Since the effect of crocin last for 4 hrs only it will have to be repeated evry 4hrs till the fever persists.Once A doc has assessed her for the cause of fever he will give other medications accordingly So visit to doc is must.Beside crocin also giving babies bath and then wiping them completely with towel is also good enough to get the temp down by 1degree.

Bye Take Care.

Thanks for your query.
Since your baby is having fever,distress i would suggest you to get her evaluated by pediatrician for proper management.
In the meantime give paracetamol as per dosage(15 mg/kg)4 to 6 hourly till fever subsides.
Continue with breast feeding to maintain proper hydration.
If fever is high,do sponging of body with tepid water.

Wishing your baby good health.
God bless.
