Q:

hi moms,
my 3 month old baby has fever of 99 degree Fahrenheit from yesterday. after giving calpol her temp dropped a bit to 98.but after sometime it again comes back to 99. what could be the reason.

don't use blanket .maintain temperature ..wipe body by wet towel from top to toe..it will help.. don't fear...

hi radhika, babies body temperature tends to raise sometimes, not due to fever, but also because they don't sweat like adults. try wiping baby with warm water and give lots of breast milk. check temperature at intervals. don't self medicate. if baby is weak and showing fatigue, take to doctor.

my baby's body temperature is normally 98-98.8 Fahrenheit. it's normal don't worry. do not use medicine without consulting doctor.

give calpol only when the temp is 100 or above. usually babies temp seem to be higher. avoid overheating.

hi.. 99 is not alarming.. hope you asked the doc before self prescribing medication to a 3 month old baby

Harpreet Kaur

99 temperature is normal in babies.so dnt give calpol. it gives only when temp is 100 n above.
