I would say around 100 degrees. She rarely has a fever though. Maybe twice since birth.
Well I think it also depends on the age of the baby. At each yearly check up the doctor usually says at what temp to give Tylenol or Motrin and how much depending on age. If you are concerned you can always call the doctor's office, they always have someone on-call. Or "google it".
i dont go by the numbers i go by how she is acting. they say thats a better indicater
Quoting vampire2007: i dont go by the numbers i go by how she is acting. they say thats a better indicater
I don't give Tylenol or Motrin until they seem to be uncomfortable. So over 101.
I try to keep it at 102 or less, if it gets higher I take action with medication and cold compresses. Fevers are good things, the body knows what it is doing trying to fight infection and medication inhibits that, we just don't want fever to get too high. If the fever gets above 103.5/104, and you can't control it, it's time for medical attention.
