Low grade fever for 6 days

I have a 5 month old daughter and shes been running a low grade fever, 99.5-100.2, almost every day since saturday (6 days ago). Does anyone know what could be causing this? I took her to the doctor a couple weeks ago and everything was fine with her. Shes happy and she plays with her toys, smiles, and laughs. I have noticed she spits up more, but her doc said that thats normal.

  • I think she's probably teething also. Sometime, though, babies run fever and there is no reason for it. My daughter ran 101 for 5 days straight when she was 8 months old. Then broke out in a terrible rash. 3 doctors visits, and multiple blood tests later, they had no clue what was causing it.

  • A low grade fever is usally associated or common when 0-12month baby is teething nothing to really worry about although it can be very nerve recking, it's also can be followed by an ear infection, mustardy or greenish smellie poop, also vometing but remember not to give baby any formula or any dairy at all it will spoil on a hot stomache and the will vomit, try to keep baby. Well hydrated with pure juices

  • with such a low grade fever she should be fine, might be teething or have an infection that is just running its course
