Answer: hi dear! Usually viral fever lasts for 7 days. Generally viral fever is continuous, present throughout the day with minor fluctuations in the temperature, unless paracetamol or other medicine is being given to control the fever. If the fever is just at night times then it is reasonable to do blood test to rule out other causes of fever. A Pediatrician must be consulted in person before doing any blood test to make sure that it is just a viral fever and nothing else. so firstly visit your pediatrician before giving any medicine. take care dear!

Question: How long should a mother give breast milk to baby..my baby is 1 yr old
Answer: It is recommended that exclusive breastfeeding (i.e. no other fluids or solids) for six months and then continued breastfeeding combined with solid foods for 2 years or as long as mother and baby are comfortable. If you breastfeed your baby for more than one year .The baby's one-year-old body can probably handle most of the family foods your family enjoys. Many of the health benefits this year of breastfeeding has given your child will last her whole life. She will have a strong immune system, for instance, and will be much less likely to need orthodontic treatment. If you breast feed your baby between 1.5 years to 2years , you will have continued to provide the nutrition, comfort, and illness protection your baby expects, at a time when illness is common in weaned babies. Your baby is probably well established on family foods, too. He has had time to form a solid bond with you — a healthy starting point for his growing independence. And the baby is old enough that you and he can work together on the weaning process, at a pace that the baby can handle.
