    The average should be 37 degrees according to Google

    "Your body temperature is usually highest in the evening. It can be raised by physical activity, strong emotion, eating, heavy clothing, medications, high room temperature, and high humidity. This is especially true in children."

    Babies and todlers should be slightly lower than adults, I think about 36 degrees is average. 38 would ebb considered a temperature. Noahs last night hit 38.8 if it hits 39 you should seek medical advice.

    Is chloe teething or have a cold? a spoon of calpol sould bring her temp back down.

    According to my thermometre instructions i should be between 36.5 and 37.5 anything over is classed as a temperature.

    If it goes up again hun, get a luke warm flannel and dab her with it and strip her off to her vest.
    If it remains up even with calpol and this ring the docs hun, they appreciate that you can't be too careful ith kids :D
