Normal body temperature varies between 97 to 99 degrees f -- so without knowing about the factors mentioned above, i'm guessing your 99.1 degrees is probably normal. ...Read more

Is 37.1 temperature normal for the3 weeks old baby? And what is normal temperature like from what to what?

That is normal: Each measurement method has some accepted range of normal/error. See the chart for a rough guide. Anyhow, taking a baby temperature is often difficult and can produce significant variability.
