I damn near pissed myself, he can't see pediatrician til the 1st due to health insurance issues so I would have to take him to the hospital which I haaaaate to do so young, and they don't take babies for overnight observation, so that means automatic airlift to hospital 1.5 hours away.



I wasn't sure if true temperatures would stay even after undressed, better yet drop in such a short time period. But, had to ask experienced mothers.

If it was a legit fever, it may have dropped some, but wouldn't drop that much just by being inside. It definitely sounds like he was just over heated especially since it went down so quickly after coming inside. I'd just take him out in a light onesie instead of a blanket.

Thank you so much. He's usually in a onesie but I was trying to get him to bgo to bed so, since spring feels like summer in fl, I put him to bed in a diaper and a swaddle. His temp is now at a steady 99.1-99.5, which is usual for him.



Thanks again ladies!
