Hello Heny, Thank you for your question.
Complementary foods (complementary foods) can be started when the baby is 6 months old. This food is given to complement the nutrition of breast milk. Giving complementary foods does not cause your child to have a fever. In general, fever is the body's response to an infection that attacks the body, whether it's a viral, bacterial or parasitic infection. Although it is generally caused by infection, fever can also be caused by several other conditions. Causes of fever include:
infections: flu, ear infection, meningitis, chicken pox, measles, dengue fever, typhus, pneumonia side effects of immunization, dehydration hot environment You can take the following recommendations:
wear thin and loose clothing for your child, monitor the child's body temperature using a thermometer, regularly apply plain water to your child's body, give paracetamol at the recommended dose if your child has a fever, give your child breast milk or formula milk to prevent permanent dehydration try to give solids to your child, monitor your child's urine production. If this complaint does not improve in a few days or is accompanied by a fussy child, does not want to breastfeed or eat, weakness, seizures, please have your child checked by a pediatrician. The doctor will examine your child's condition to find the cause before determining the next treatment.
