As new parents, you may not be prepared to evaluate your infant when he’s ill. Parenting is far most a difficult task and to know when you can handle the illness yourself and when to get help. Here are the top 10 signs of illness for babies. Instead of worrying, seek for help and advice from your relatives and friends who have had this so called ‘parenting experience’.

1. Crying – A baby who becomes very irritable, fretful, and fussy, with long crying periods, may be ill or in pain.
2. Fever – Fever itself is not an illness, but rather the baby’s response to an illness – most commonly an infection.
3. Vomiting – If it happens more frequently, contains blood or is green in color, or if the baby looks dehydrated, call your doctor.
4. Refusing to breastfeed or drink from a bottle
5. Diarrhea – Diarrhea is common in infants, but call the doctor if there is blood in the stool
6. Problems breathing – If your baby is having trouble breathing, you need to call the doctor
7. Problems swallowing
8. Rashes – Take your baby to the doctor if the rash covers a large area or is accompanied by a fever, sore throat or diarrhea.
9. Dehydration – You can recognize dehydration if your baby has a dry mouth and gums, wets the diaper less frequently, sheds no tears when crying
10. Cold – Upper respiratory infections (URIs) are caused by a virus and are very common in infants.
