I checked her temp under her arm and it was 100.1 and is it right that you add one degree so it would be 101.1?
Is this something I need to get her in to the doctor for, or what should I do? We've never dealt with a baby fever before.

Fevers are fighting off infection/virus and can last up to three days even with a temperature of 103. It's also normal for a fever to go up and down even with taking a fever reducer. Is she eating drinking, even a little bit? If she isn't acting "normal" I would be more concerned like being lethargic.You may want to call the pedi to be sure.
