You might want to call your pediatrician and get an appointment with the nurse practitioner

Do you mean 97.1? And is that rectally or under the arm?

That's normal. No worries :)



I have a bad cold right now too and my son seems a little congested. He has no fever and is eating fine/wetting diapers. Unless the baby is in distress or has a fever I wouldn't worry too much.

Is there any other signs to watch for besides a fever

He's very fussy. But beside throwing up that's it.

Possible reflux? When you say "throwing up" is he really vomiting or spitting up?
