Neonatal Sepsis

At day 18 post partum, my baby is currently being admitted for fever.

Am I worried? Very!

Irritability + high grade fever is not a good combination. I burst into tears when his recorded temp was 39.3 degrees in ED yesterday..

Currently his temperature is hovering around 38 degrees and will only settle after Paracetamol is served. He is no longer as fretful as before and I have found the source of fever which is me!

My temp was 38.8 degrees yesterday and currently I am not allowed to directly breastfeed my baby until my fever has settled..I am still not well as I am typing this.

My dear baby, please get well soon..
