Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Difficulty sleeping in babies can be normal, but it can also indicate discomfort in the body. It is necessary to do an objective examination to determine whether your child really has a fever or not. You can take your child's temperature with a thermometer to determine it. If your child's body temperature rises above 37.5 degrees Celsius, it means that your child does have a fever.
Fever and frequent spitting up in children the possible cause could be an infection, maybe a virus, or it could be bacteria. This infection can attack the digestive tract, for example due to rarely washing hands, consuming food that is not processed hygienically, consuming undercooked food, or food contaminated with feces. Several types of microorganisms that often infect the digestive tract include group e. coli, rotavirus, salmonella, and so on. In addition to fever and frequent spitting up, children with gastrointestinal infections can also experience other complaints, such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, flatulence, decreased appetite, and so on. As a result of discomfort when experiencing these various complaints, babies can become more fussy and have difficulty sleeping.
In addition to gastrointestinal infections, infections in other organ systems can also cause complaints like the ones your child is experiencing, such as urinary tract infections, meningitis, ARI (acute respiratory infection), and so on. It is also possible that your child's current complaints appear as a sign of teething, dyspepsia (increased stomach acid), and so on. It is necessary to do a physical evaluation directly to distinguish each of the above possibilities.
Therefore, if it is true that your child has a fever, and this fever has lasted more than 3 days, you should check your child directly to the doctor. If necessary, the doctor will perform additional tests, such as a laboratory so that proper treatment can be carried out.
For now, stay calm. Address your child's complaints with the following efforts:
If your child is still breastfeeding, breastfeed him as often as possible. Also, give the child plenty of water to prevent dehydration from too much spit up. Compress the baby's neck, armpits, or groin with warm water to reduce the fever. If necessary, give the child paracetamol at the doctor's recommended dose. If your baby has started consuming solid food (complementary food for breast milk), give him soft-textured solids first, and give it in small portions but often to prevent repeated spitting up Burp the baby after every feeding Let the baby rest more Keep the environment around the baby clean Give the baby comfortable sleepwear When baby has trouble sleeping, calm him down, namely by hugging him or rocking him while humming a rhythm that makes him comfortable
