My LO is 6 wks old, and tonight on the 20 minute car ride home she screamed and cried the whole time. Well after calming her down, feeding her Etc She continues to be a lil fussy in spurts, But I've noticed her body feels sweaty and cold. I guess clammy is the word. Should I be worried???

check for fever. is she messing with either of her ears more then normal? any throw up or diahrea? cold and sweaty makes me think fever or that she is having some kind of pain..weither is a headache or its more teeth if she doesnt have them already..

She is just now 6 weeks so no teeth, really hasnt touched her ears yet. My son has a lil virus going on with coughing sneezing snotting fever. We took him in yesterday. I have been monitoring my baby for signs of fever and none so far. But my dad watched her for a few hrs. She was swaddled when I got there sleeping peacefully, but when I picked her up I noticed she was sweaty feeling thru her clothes, (just a simple long sleeve onsie)

6weeks sorry I guess I missed that part. Im tired and cant sleep. anyways..sweaty usually means they break the fever, clammy usually has something to do with the fever still being there. Keep her swaddled as much as you can which at this age that should be pretty easy..you dont want to over heat her but the sweating will help her. I'd make an apt with the pedi just because of how young she is and make sure she doesnt have it..tho if its a virus unfortunately the best you can do is keep her hydrated, make sure she is having regular diapers..still wet, still dirty..tomorrow should tell you alot about how she is..
