Pretty normal if a child is ill. How "slight" is the fever?

Yeah thats definitely normal for a fever. Just put some socks on them and rub the hands softly.

Definitely put some socks on and rub them or run warm water over them for even faster relief.

It is normal. It is the time of year for little cold bugs. The cold hands and feet are also pretty normal for the time of year. You want to worry if his hands and feet are hot and clamy to the touch. Otherwise he is just fine.

Really? Ok, wow I did not know that. I propped his legs up on a pillow a bit to get his circulation going and he seems to be doing much better. Thanks all!

Just to let you know that if you have his legs proped it will take longer for the blood to travel down. If they are lower than his heart it is more likely to improve circulation. However, I don't think it is as much of a circulation issue as it is a change in weather pattern and such.

Hope he feels better!
