My son who is 4years old was complaining of headache

My son who is 4years old was complaining of headache earlier, he now is deep asleep and seems peaceful. I noticed then that he was having cold sweats and was clammy and cold to touch. I've been monitoring his temperature and although he seems peacefully asleep for the last 3 hours his temperature is down to 33.9C. Is this reason for concern?

My 12 month old has had very limited contact with her father

Hi,My 12 month old has had very limited contact with her father (for numerous reasons), he has never lived with us and he has been granted overnight contact beginning in April 2019. In 2020 when my child is two, he will be having 50/50 during the summer. Since contact with him began in December and also, given her age she is experiencing separation anxiety. She is breastfed at night for comfort and I am very concerned. The Judge said, she was unimpressed with the breastfeeding argument and said, "suck it and see it". I have read a lot about this issue and many articles written by child psychologists and learnt that overnight contact at such a young age and also joint custody can cause longer, emotional problems. Should I appeal this decision based on her age and his limited involvement with her?
