In brief: Not quite a fever

100.7 degress fahrenheit is not classified as being a fever.
There should only be some concern if your baby's fever starts getting closer to 102 degrees. Our body's temperature naturally fluctuates during the day. If you 7 month old does develop a fever, they probably have a viral infection. Keep an eye on your baby's temperature and look for any other symptoms (e.g., fussiness, cough).

In brief: It is fever!

Anything over 100.
5 is fever. If the baby is acting normal you can watch and re check the temp. If no other symptoms and fever lasts for more than 3 days see the doctor.

In brief: Common

Any small child is likely to get 5-7 fever producing illnesses a year as they build their immune system. These are most often viral and many never need medical attention.
When they can keep up with their usual activities of feeding/playing you watch them. If they reduce feeding & quit playing it may be time to have them seen.
