In neonate fever causes are sepsis, urinary tract infections or upper respiratory tract infections. Consult your Pediatrician for examination of focus of infection and for the treatment. Sucking pads of fat will be there in cheeks and they are normal for neonates and they felt like palpable pads and nothing to worry.
