    Default Elevated body temp. Is that normal?

    DD is 10 months old and her body temperature has always been around 37.3. Is that normal? She's always warmer to touch than DS, I have asked the doctors before and they are not concerned.
    Today she's 37.7,- 38 I am not even sure if that's a low grade fever or not since her normal body temp is slightly higher?

    Does she seem sick at all? Lethargic? Off her food?

    Hmmm. Maybe you can offer a little panadol if you're concerned but it does sound like maybe she just has a slightly higher normal temp?

    What kind of thermometer are you taking her temp with? I know you said she feels warmer to touch also but I have honestly returned about 5 different types of thermometers to the shop because there is absolutely no way the readings could have been accurate.

    I would try it on myself first before using it on DS and one kept saying my temp was 34.4.... ummmmm, I don't think so, lol.

    I use the ones that you put in the ear, DS and DH both around 36.5, I am always around 36.7. And DD is always 37.3, to me its a bit higher than what it should be, but she's happy, content, growing fine and she's 10 months old. And the doctors are not concerned so I am not so worried.
    But today she feels warmer than usual and the thermometer also shows higher temp, so I gave her some Panadol, but her temp is still around 37.8-38ish, and I am suddenly all confused, is she sick or not.
    Is it just her having higher body temp or is she fighting a virus. She doesn't seem to be unhappy but definitely a bit whingy, could be teething as there's no other symptoms of sickness.
    But now I am worried maybe her usually body temperature is not normal
