Get an Exergen Temporal Thermometer. You swipe it across the forehead. They sell them at Drug Stores & Walmart. I would keep taking it & if it is 99 tomorrow I'd take the baby in to see the Pediatrician just in case.

My dd's pediatrician told the best way for an accurate temp is rectally. Here are the instructions he have me..
Clean the end of the thermometer with rubbing alcohol or soap and water. Rinse it with cool water. Do not rinse it with hot water. Put a small amount of lubricant, such as petroleum jelly, on the end. Place your child belly down across your lap or on a firm surface. Hold him by placing your palm against his lower back, just above his bottom. Or place your child face up and bend his legs to his chest. Rest your free hand against the back of the thighs.
I found this way a lot easier.
