What do you mean? body temperature?

If you're worried about bub then call the 13health line or whatever it is in your state, or one of the home dr services. We're not qualified to give medical advice.

As Penguin mentioned, we can't provide medical advice on the forum. A check over with a health professional is worth it if you're concerned :) Generally a normal temperature is 37; my thermometer usually takes a few goes to get a consistent reading so I do it on myself until I get the same reading three times then take my child's temperature until I get three consistent readings. Hope that helps and that your little one is ok :)

Also depends where you're taking the temperature ie. armpit, forehead etc and what type of thermometer it is.

Hope your LO is ok.
