Fevers are a normal part of your immune system, but for parents, it is something which gives them a lot of worries. Parents have sleepless nights when their kids have a fever. If your child has a temperature but is acting normally, don’t worry. Coughing and other symptoms warrant closer observation. If your baby is having a seizure then immediately dial 911.

Generally, call your doctor if your kid has a fever with the following temperature

  • newborn to 3 months – 100.4F
  • 3-6 months – 102F
  • 6-24 months – 102F for 24 hours
  • Children – 102F for 72 hours
  • Teens – 103F for 3 or more days
