Q.

Sleepy baby

My baby will be seven months next week. She has a bit of a fever(37.2) and has been very sleepy the last two days. When she's awake very niggly. Can this be cause I've been weaning her the last 2 weeks.

Paediatrician

This is certainly not due to weaning. I am concerned about her symptoms because this is the way that babies can present when they have meningitis. Please have her seen by your paediatrician or doctor to make sure that this is nothing serious.
