Does your LO do this.. My son is almost 6 weeks old and he just feels hot sometimes to my arm or face but I check his temp and its normal its mostly really warm on the back of his head.. I sure hope he does have a fever that im not noticeing cuz I check his temp under his armpit.. JW if u ladies have a baby like this?? He hasnt been crying.. fussy.. or anything and he still eats all of his bottles!

My LO ALWAYS feels like she has a fever to me. I think it's just me lol, because when I check her temp. or if anyone else feels her, she's normal.

hey Momma!!



What is his temp under his arm? My girl gives off a lot of heat sometimes too, and her head on my arm sometimes feels sweaty but she hasn't had a temperature. If he isn't crying or fussy, I'm sure he is feeling just fine. You know babies don't hesitate to let us know when something isn't right :)

If he's laying on the back of his head, it's going to feel warmer. My LOs always tend to feel really warm, but they have no fevers. On a 6 week old, it's usually more accurate to do a rectal temp.

both my boys are like their daddy and are walking heaters. lol if you were to feel my 20mos head right now, you would reach for the thermometer, but it would read 98.5....not really sure why they are like that they just are.
