 That is confusing me. You can tell she does not feel well at all. She is 11 months, she hasnt wanted to do anything except have a bottle and then went back to sleep. She keeps waking up every half hour or so crying. =( Her cheeks are red, her skin is burning hot. When I take her temp. it comes out normal. (97.7) It is one of those thermometers that you put on their foreheads. It has always worked good, I changed the batteries and everything. I tried a different thermometer for her ear but that stupid thing is all kinds of messed up. It came out as 107.2 or something like that, my heart jumped and thought I needed to immediatly take her to the ER. I tested it on myself (I feel fine) and it came out 106.7. Stupid thing. I think I would be feeling a lot worse if I had a fever that high.

 Oooh...maybe I should go get one of those. I'm not sure if she would let me keep it in her mouth under her tongue for very long though. She fought me just for the ear one.

I don't like those forehead ones, they never work fo DD.

Maybe she's teething really bad?

Try a regular thermometer under her arm.

try doing it under her arm? but you have to add a degree for that. Like, if the thermometer says 97.7, then her temeratue is really 98.7
