  • no...not really.. just give some tylenol to make sure it doesn't go higher. 101 or higher is.

  • its slightly high..and it depends on where u took their temp. i think if its under the arm u add or sub a degree..i think u subtract. and rectal is add a degree

  • Quoting JaydnsMom22 " I think if its under the arm u add or sub a degree..i think u subtract. and rectal is add a degree." She is incorrect, when taking temp. in underarm you add a degree, and rectally it is subtract a degree. It's not too bad, could be a lot worse, but could be better. I would just give some fever reducer and keep an eye on it and make sure it doesn't skyrocket.

  • Yes and no, technically yes, but my son has had 103.4 from teething. I gave him baby acitomenaphin and LUKE warm bath, and it went away. The hospital doesn't even give them the bath, they just give them meds and monitor.. I hope your LO gets better soon! =) GL

  • I wouldn't worry too much about it. Just keep an eye on it, and give Tylenol if it gets much higher.
