Complaints of weakness and sleep are the effects of fever experienced by your baby, especially if this fever has been going on a few days before. In addition, the risk of dehydration due to fever and pain they experience can be a trigger for complaints of weakness and sleepiness. Low fluid intake, decreased appetite, and other comorbid complaints can also aggravate these complaints.
If your baby cries a lot or is fussy, this gives you a hint that there is an uncomfortable condition that your baby feels, whether it is digested, the oral cavity, when swallowing, or his airway. So it needs to be further identified other comorbid complaints and need to know which body systems are disrupted.
