9 months old-fever and throwing up

Hi Doc n Mommies

My lil'' girl is 9 months and has been having fever for the past 5 days, it comes and goes yesterday she was throwing up and now my mother has taken her to the clinic, do you think its worth worring over,I think its related to the fact that she could be teething, not even 1 has come out yet

Your baby's vomiting is not due to teething. She may have a gastro infection or other illness such as tonsillitis. It is essential to take her to see a doctor or nurse as young babies may rapidly become dehydrated if they vomit like this. So your Mom was quite right to take your baby to the clinic.
