could it be something

My son is a little ovevr 10 mos old. He had a slight fever this morning 99.7 and i didnt think anything of it but it went up to like 100.3 and then he was fine. Its 75 degrees where i am and i dont have air conditioning if that matters. hes been playing with me and he felt a tad warm and his temperature was 101.0. He just drank a bunch of water and is seeming to eat fine also. He has been a little clingy but nothing crazy. I gave him tylenol and right now he is playing with his toys and talking and babbling?? Is he ok? His top 2 front teeth are budding could that be it? he is supposed to stay at my moms tonight should i let him go or keep him with me? This has happened a few times wtih week by the way

  • When teething babies can have a fever. I'd just keep a watch out for him. The tylenol should help.

  • could be nothing, could be a cold, time will tell how he does,
    but anything over 100.4 is not just teething

  • Frankly, I would have asked the Dr. sooner in the week... Why would you have waited?

  • op here: does it mean anything that although he has a slight temp his hands and feet arent overly hot like could it just be because hes been crawling around my house like a madman that his body temp increased?

  • if mom wants to keep him let her, just send the baby tylenol and tell her to call you if he gets worse

  • As long as he is drinking and not lethargic, I would let him be.
