  • Normal for most is 98.6. Do you think your child is feverish, or too cold. BTW, if you take the temp under the arm, add a degree.

  • yeah average is 98.6 but little babies bodies can be hotter normally. my daughters is always like 93. she just runs hotter lol. i asked her pedi and she said its normal for them to be warmer when theyre little babies. she said you have to find your childs normal temperature and if you think they are feverish, to compare it to THEIR normal temp... i hope that makes sense..

  • Average for anyone is 98.6, but it also depends on the child. My son always ran cooler (about 97.8 or so). You just have to learn what is normal for your child.

  • We all have our own normal temperature. The average temperature for a human is 98.6 F. Some of us have a natural temperature a bit higher, some lower.
