No. Definitely not. ( or at least only in a very complex and highly unlikely pattern of events ). Convulsions in infants and young children are not always necessarily vary serious, but must ALWAYS be taken very seriously, and the child should be promptly taken to a casualty or physician for a thorough examination and tests, to find out which of a great many possible causes is relevant. Some children may have a lower threshold for having fits, and may do so when, for instance, they have a high temperature.
A paediatrician may be useful, but the full history and careful examination and investigation is essential, rather than leaping to conlusions and following one of the least likely causes
