  • No you should not worry . Maybe the baby is just to hot take off a layer of clothes . temp to even give them something is 101.1. Give the baby a little warm water . the baby shoudl be fine if that does not work and it does go up pass 101.1 then call the doc and ask them what shouldl u do good luck!!!!

  • At 4 months you should call your doc for anything over 102, ER for over 103. 3 months and under, 101.4 is the magic take your baby to the doctor number.

  • Depends how old baby is - you didn't say. Under a certain age, kind of, over a certain age, not at all.

  • no that's practically low-grade for an infant. if he or she had their 4 month shots recently that could cause a lowgrade fever. dressing them too warmly with warm blankets on top of it can cause them to run warm also. just check it frequently to make sure it doesnt get too high.
