YOUR NEW­BORN’S HEAD FEELS WARM SO HE HAS A FEVER

Your Baby & Toddler - - Baby Files -

Feel­ing your baby’s head or fore­head is not an ac­cu­rate as­sess­ment of fever. Al­ways feel the back of your child’s neck or his chest or ab­domen area. If th­ese ar­eas feel warm to the touch, use a ther­mome­ter for an ac­cu­rate read­ing of fever.
