  • i actually wouldnt give her any. thats really not a temp for a child. theirs run a few degrees higher then ours so 100.5 really isnt much of anything, just give her lots of fluids and rest and just keep an eye on her temp to make sure its not getting higher.

  • Don't!!! That's not a high fever, even at that age.

  • I wouldn't give her anything either but you can always call her doctor and ask.

  • I would contact her pediatrician and have them tell you the body temperatures that are normal for babies.
