How can you identify the symptoms of illness in children?

Although a fever is a symptom that can develop in both babies and older children, it is important to consult a doctor when a baby under 3 months has any type of fever. Another case in which parents may need to speak with a doctor is when a fever lasting longer than 24 hours is above 102 degrees Fahrenheit and the child is between 6 and 24 months, states Mayo Clinic.
