Fever please help

Do babies get fevers when they're going through a growth spurt? My son always sleeps more when he's growing and he slept from 9pm-10:30am and has been taking more naps. His temperature is only 99 but I wanted to know if that goes along with growing.

  • He might be teething. How old is he? My son sleeps more and gets a low-grade fever while teething

  • He is almost five months old. I didn't even think of that! Well I've got him in just a diaper right now and he's happy with a bottle.

  • My son also gets fevers while teething.

  • If he's fussy or acts like his mouth bothers him you can always give Motrin (works better than tylenol for pain while teething). If you think he's fighting off an illness then I would let his body do the work and not give him anything until it gets higher. Good luck!!!

  • 99 is normal.
