I was just wondering, what is the best way to take a 1 year old's temperature? I took my LO's temperature under her arm earlier, and got a reading of 100. I honestly don't know how accurate an underarm reading is. I am so worried about her. I think she may be cutting her molars, but I'm not positive. I really hope that is what is causing this! Any and all help is greatly appreciated!Answer Question

Thanks ladies! I tried googling it without any luck, but I'd much rather have the advise from someone who has been here first hand anyhow. I was kind of afraid to take her temp rectally because she is such a wiggle worm. My daughter doesn't have any other symptoms than just a fever, and she's been chewing her little fingers on the side of her mouth, so... I hope it's just teething. Everything I've read says teething doesn't cause fevers, but most mom's say differently. I feel so badly for her!!=( Anyhow, Thank you all so much!
