Fever could be due to many causes respiratory tract infection. If not, then go for urinary infection. Also, check for urine frequency or baby cries episodes during passing urine.

It could also be viral fever, anyhow start Panadol syrup 4 to 6 hourly according to the need and also start syrup Cefim twice a day half teaspoonful (tsf) for 5 days. Do not discontinue in between.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
