Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Meningitis is a serious disease and the consequences and sequelae are not good.If your child is already admitted in ICU it means he is serious enough. None of us can help you sitting so far away. We can only pray for his early recovery.

Hi Naveen, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Was the Delivery of your Child through normal delivery or cesarean? Have you got him vaccinated for any disease recently? Because there are various causes for Meningitis in infants, there are two types of it, if it occurs in Infants, like Aseptic Meningitis caused by viruses and Bacterial Meningitis. I suppose it is bacterial meningitis in your child's case as Group B streptococcus is the most common bacterial etiologic agent in cases of meningitis that occur during the first month after birth. The causes could be congenital infections, drug reactions, postvaccination complications, systemic diseases, the exact cause has to be found out and Promptly treated which could happen only in an ICU set up. Do not worry, as the duration of ICU Stay, depends upon the severity of infection and the child's response to the treatment. Prompt diagnosis and treatment will definitely bring out a improved outcome.

I wish him Good Health, Take Care.
