Hello, it is pretty common to see refusal of feeds in infants when they fall sick. Usual viral fever causes same symptoms as your child is having, even with treatment it takes 3 to 5 days to relieve. Key is it is important to maintain hydration of your baby with frequent breast feeding and with ors solution. If baby doesn't take even a small sips frequently, kindly consult pediatrician at the earliest and may need few blood tests.
