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
