My babys always warm. This a normal thing?

8 votes
My baby is always warm, her doctor said her rash was normal and will go away soon and that she is not sick.  Even though it is getting colder my daughter is always warm.  Please tell me this happens to some of you.

If your doctor says your babe is fine then dont worry.  I am always warm and know other people and babies with the same problem.

Anything over 38.3 degrees is considered a fever by most daycares so if she's below this I wouldn't worry.  I take my babe's temp when I'm worried but I don't use an anal thermometer.  I take his temp under his arm pit with his arm down (that's the way we were taught in the hospital).  I'm paranoid by nature so this is probably welcomed by him since its less invasive.  He runs warmer than 37 degrees (the apparent norm) but so do I - gotta love genetics

My little guy is like a furnace. He is always warm, but his temperature is always in the normal range. He takes after his father who also is always warm. It is more than likely a matter of genetics.
