In brief: Take Their Temp

Many things make a child feel warm, not all of which have elevated body temperature.
Take the temperature, rectally best.

In brief: Take Temp

If the rectal temp is over 100.
5 f it is a fever, be aware that any infant under 3 months with a seemingly low grade fever must be checked asap as they have a higher risk of developing a worrisome infection.
