    my baby also had the fever when she first had the six in one vaccination & her temperature reached 38.1C. we gave her some panadol given by ped & it took an hr or two for her temperature to go back down. yes, she was also very sleepy & flushed. don't worry, this is very normal.

    My baby did the same thing and just like you I was very worried and didn't sleep the whole night. The fever went away after about 24hours. She hasn't had a fever with the shots since. Hope that helps. Hang in there

    6-in-1

    hi,

    i think babies will usually have fever if they take 6-in-1. that's because 6 different types of virus (dead or live) have entered their bodies at the same time. so when their little bodies are fighting the virus, they will have fever.. that's how their bodies,, learn and produce antibodies.

    dont worry.
