Is it normal for a baby to run high temperature after 10 weeks immunization? Baby has poo 5 times over the night unlike the usual poo of once or none throughout the night. The hands and feet are cold as well. Paracetamol syrup was given 3 times yesterday but still no improvement today. Any help or advice, please?

Hello ma'am Fever is a common side effects of immunisation. Give paracetamol every 6 - 8 hours for the 2-3 days . With respect to the poo, as long as the poo is normal and doesn't sink completely into the diaper then there is nothing to worry about. Also, make sure you are checking the temperature of your baby using a thermometer. All the best
