You need to consult a paediatrician immediately for a complete medical checkup of your child. Fever in such a small child lasting for more than 6 weeks is definitely not normal. There can be many causes of such a fever and just to name a few-it could be sepsis, bronchopneumonia, tb, malignancy and many others. He could be sleeping either because of generalized ill health or involvement of brain or meninges or even thyroid disorder. These are conditions just to name a few and not to alarm you but to apprise you that it`s time you took your child to a hospital or a paediatrician.
