101 F: Though you may ask 3 different doctors and get 3 different numbers. I think 101.0 f is a good starting number. However, if your little one in feeling bad and has a temperature, give him an appropriate dose of tylenol (acetaminophen) and keep him well hydrated. Call your doctor if you have more concerns.
