My 2 month old

Has a temp of 99.6 (notice how I didn't say fever). Her average temp is right around 98.6. Should I call her doctor just to give them a heads up or just keep an eye on it? She felt kinda warm and was kinda fussy so I took her temp and that's what it was. She was hospitalized a while ago for an infection so I know when to take her in I just don't know if I should call

Just keep an eye on it, they won't do anything about a temp that low

Nah , call when or if it reaches 100.5 or higher just to let them know your concerns. My son is always 99 degrees.

Keep an eye on it. Doctors won't even consider it until it's close to 103.5 I think. You can maybe try baby Tylenol. If you're not sure of the dosage you can call and ask.

I would call since she's so young and just had an infection.

Keep an eye on it. Nothing to be done at the moment.
