I am a mom of two but feel like a newbie here with my second. She two months old had her first shots and was running a fever. I did her temp under the arm and it was 101. My husbands family was here and kept bugging me to take it rectal because it would be more accurate. Anyway needless to say I did and now I worry that I hurt her and do not know it. I maybe put it in a inch but no more for sure and she never cried or moved at all. She smiled the whole time. There was no bleeding with her bowel movements and it has been two days since I did it. Would she show signs already if I had torn something. Please no rude comments I already know I'm am a worrywart as my screen name says but I can not stop thinking I hurt her. She cries alot from reflux and colic so it's freaking me out.Answer Question
