Helo mommies plzz suggest me normal body temp for babies aaj baby ka vaccine dilaya maine 6 weeks wala she is crying alot so i m bit confused about her body temperature her temp is 100.3 is it normal or i need to gv medicine

give paracetamol drops.

100.3 means its heavy fever.. pls gv medicine first..

yes pls give Crocin drops. her pediatrician may have given her the dosage as per weight. also hold her close to comfort her as often as you can.

Helo Dctr actually her temp is fluctuating nw its 99.1 i hav nt gvn drop nd my pediatrician is not available now bt i hav calpol drop can i gv her now nd how much plzz tell me i dnt knw her weight is 4.6 kg

I had given my baby calpol drops as and when she had fever after vaccination as suggested by her pediatrician.. dosage depends on the weight of the baby.

At 99 don't give the drops. Calpol is also paracetamol and so is crocin. The drug is the same name is different. Dose always has to be given by the doctor and not randomly. It is normal for baby to feel uncomfortable after the DPT vaccination for 36 to 48 hours. You can breast feed her often as this will also help to comfort her and act as an analgesic.
