Re: question about 3 month old and temperatures

98.6 under the arm means 99.6. My Ped said that anything under 100.4 is okay and not considered a fever.

Jackson runs high like be, so he's ALWAYS at 99.6. That's his normal.

We do it under the arm. We've got a rectal, but unless he had a bad fever, I wouldn't do that to him. They did once in the ER and he looked at us like "WHAT ON EARTH IS SHE DOING?!?!"

We don't vaccinate, we kept our sons intact, we use cloth diapers, we co-sleep, we extended RF, we breastfeed, but we watch too much tv and I totally dig plastic! Everyone has their issues, lol.
