For moms with babies

My baby feels like he has a fever, I'm at my grandmas and she doesn't have a thermometer so I'm going to check it when I get home, what is considered a dangerous temperature and how can I help take it down ? This is my first baby and I have been dreading the day he gets sick and he will be 3 months old on the 12th

Don't over clothe him keep him in a onesie while your indoors because if he has too much clothes it can overheat him

You can do children or infant Tylenol. Just a lil tho. And a temp that's to high for a infant is 101. Try giving him a cool warm bath to cool him off if the temp is to high.

I believe over 101 is bad for a baby under 6 months, anything higher than that I would take him.
