  • I would not worry about that. If it's 103 then you can worry a bit. You can keep baby in lightweight cotton clothes, make sure he's drinking fluid and ride it out. He can have a bath that is tepid, not super warm but not cool either. If he's lethargic, not eating, and if when you pinch his fingernail it turns white and takes a long time to return to pink, then call the doc. He'll be just fine.
