Q.

heat &  baby

Dear Doc
My lo is 13 months old, what concerns me is that with this heat he has a funny reaction to it or maybe not because of the heat, but I noticed that when it is very hot he gets a high fever. He is not over dressed and he will get the fever either the same day or the next.
I don’ t think that is normal or is it
Thanks

It is never normal for a baby to have fever like this. This is not due to overdressing your baby. It is possible that he may have an infection causing this fever especially of his tonsils or ears or urinary system. He should be seen by a paediatrician.
