Alhamdulillah, as Raees celebrated his 8th-month birthday, he never experienced being sick. I believe breast milk contributed to his good health :)
However, I came across an article that says...
"If your baby hasn't has his first fever by his eighth month, chances are he may soon."
Waddaya know, it happened!
Raees woke up at 2.30am to feed but cried as he latched on. I guessed as much he had stuffy nose as I could hear the stuffiness as he breathed in.
He cried very tragically and was difficult to calm down. When he did calm down he actively played til 4am. Ah, the joy of parenthood :)
The stuffiness recurred the next time he woke up for feeding. This time his cries were less tragic compared to before.
Turns out he had a slight fever. Lucky thing we had fever medication on stand by. His temperature was back to normal by the afternoon.
The article also added...
"Almost all infants will have at least one episode of fever by their first birthdays."
I hope that was Raees' one episode..
