Fever: Fever above 38.5 is usually a sign of infection of some sort. You have not given me much information but i would go see your physician to determine the reason for the fever now.

Possible emergency: Normal temperature can vary between 36.5 to 37.5 Celcius through the day but both high and low temperatures may be a sign of infection or other serious problems. Take your child to see a doctor immediately.

How can I wean my daughter off the bottle?

If she is ready...: ...Take the bottle away. If she is physically capable of eating off a spoon or drinking from a cup, she will do so when hungry or thirsty enough. But then, be sure you really need to wean right now.

Sacral dimple: There are many kids born with a pit like dimple at the base of their spine called a sacral dimple. This can be quite deep and needs to be examined closely.If it has a tuft of hair or seems to produce any discharge it should be evaluated by a doctor. If it ends in normal skin at it's base it is just a curiosity most kids don't have.
