    Trying to wrack my brain here - from memory 36 to 36.5 up to 37.4 (something around there anyway). 36.2 is normal. I don't know much about babies yet but could she be teething? HTH.

    I could be wrong, but I think a temp on a baby is anything over 37.5? Really depends on the doctor though - I've had drs say anything over 37 degrees.

    Ok, BIL is a nuse and he just said 37.5. Hope your lil one is feeling better soon.

    My ds used to get flushed cheeks when he was teething. Hope she settles down for you soon.
