What's Hot, What's Not
Your child officially has a fever when the thermometer reads 100.4 F. and above, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. When it warrants a call to your doctor, however, varies by age:
|Age||When to Call|
|Under 2 months||100.4° F|
|3 to 6 months||101° F|
|Over 6 months||103° F|
