    Default Whats a high/low temp in babies?

    My boy is 6 months and had his needles today. His temp us currently 35 and it makes me uncomfortable it being that... whats the normal range? I know generally over 37-37.5 is high but what is low?

    I have found out underarm one is usually a degree lower than normal but I don't really have any suggestions for how to fix it. The in-ear ones I was told you can't use until they are older. Maybe just check it under both arms and then check your temp and see how it compares.

    I was always told to Add 1 degrees if your using an underarm thermometer, because your not measuring core temperature.
