Is baby not acting right? What are some other reasons why you are taking the temp?

I agree rectal is the only way to get a accurate temp. When my son was a few days old his underarm temp was really high. I called the doctor on call around 10 at night because I didn't know what to do. He said to take a rectal temp because that's the only way to get an accurate reading. I felt so stupid for not thinking of that. It's not pleasant, but honestly the babies don't even mind.
