i think most people know the best way to take a babies tem under 12 mts even 24 mts is rectal. i have a cahrt at home given to me by my pediatricain and thsi is what it says. rectal temp
0-3 mts 100.4 is a fever
3-6 mts 101 is a fever
6-9mts 102 is a fever
9-12 mts 103 is a fever
my doc said that unless my child is acting funny and the tylenol and mortin arent woprking then not to worry. fever is an indictaion of the body fighting something. but i dont know how many times i have seen a mom freak out cuz her 3 mth old has a fever of 99.8(rectal) and some ignorant perosn comes and tell them is a high fever er. dont people read up on stuff before answering a medical question?
