Question: my 2 months old lo has fever since afternoon.. her body temperature is 99.6, checked in her under arms.. anyone please suggest how to decrease baby's body temperature.
Place a cool, damp washcloth on your child's forehead while she rests.
Give your child a lukewarm tub bath or a sponge bath. As the water evaporates from her skin, it will cool her and bring her temperature down. Don't use cold water. It can make her shiver and cause her body temperature to rise.
.Use a fan. Again, you don't want your child to be chilled. Keep the fan at a low setting and have it circulate the air around her rather than blow directly on her.
Remove layers of clothing so your child can lose heat more easily through her skin. Dress her in one light layer.
.Stay indoors in a cool place. Or, if you're outside, stay in the shade.
If still your lo body temperature is more than 100 please consult your doctor..

Question: My baby is 11 days old and her body temperature is 99, is she having fever?
Answer: Hi dear,
Though cold and fever is quite in babies,it really concerns the parents. Fever is a sign of body fighting an infection in body,which is good.the temperature rises when the body is fighting against it but there is nothing to panic about. Keep your baby in comfortable clothes.never overdress or wrap in blankets in fever.it can get worse. To lower the temperature you can apply warm water cotton pads on his forehead.if he's also suffering from cold along with it then fever could be due to that. Make him sip lot of water to flush out the germs and also to reduce the temperature.you can give paracetamol to your baby with the right dosage given by your paediatrician,if the fever goes above 100. If your child is active once the temperature goes down,then nothing to worry.if he's unwell even after the fever is gone,visit the doctor to assess any other medical reason.
