  • 99.9 is actually still considered a normal temp, not a fever. Could definitely be teething though.

  • yeah, actually that isn't considered a fever (crazy, I know!)  after shots DD had a temp of 100.4, and when I looked it up online I found that even that was just a low-grade fever, and it wasn't recommended to even treat because it was just the body fighting something off, and to let it run it's course.

    this is the article I read online which I thought had a lot of good info about fevers in babies: http://www.askdrsears.com/topics/parenting/childhood-illnesses/fever

    From experiences with my kids, auxillary or under the arm temps run a degree lower than orally and rectal runs a degree higher than oral so 97.6 auxillary equals 98.6 orally equals 99.6 rectally.

  • Like PP said that isn't considered a temp for a rectal reading! After his four month shots Jack's temp was 102.2 rectally and that was a fever.  I think it said up to 102 is normal! Your thermometer should have came with a paper that tells you the normal temps for rectal, oral, underarm and ext.  I wouldn't worry! The Tylenol should help though. GL!
