 Last night DS was sleeping in our bed...he is 2.5 years old. At about 2am I feel him brushing the side of my cheek with his hand. I wake up and he is just staring at me half lidded...so I put my hand on his butt to see if he might have peed through his diaper...nope. Then I feel his forehead and he is normal...no fever or anything. Then I put my hand on his belly...and his back. ITS HOT! Like crazy HOT! I was scared so I threw the blanket off of him and within 2-4 minutes his belly was normal to the touch.

What could it have been? There was no sweat or anything...the a/c was on pretty low 69 degrees.

Shouldnt he have just thrown the covers off of him?

Should I call the pediatrician?

Quoting Mrs.Pool2Be:

I would say to keep an eye on his temperature because my SD will get hot on her belly and back but not her forehead when she has a fever but then again he could have just been hot and was so deep asleep that he didn't even realize it.

 This is exactly what happened. He had a fever of 100.1 the next day.

Maybe next time take his temp. It could still be a fever if his forehead isn't hot. Probably just hot from the blankets though. I have the opposite problem with my dd, she's always kicking her blankets off, even when it's cold!
