Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Well, normal body temp is 98.6, though my stepson (and a lot of kids) run a bit hotter, about 99 degrees, and I run cooler (97.5ish).  Generally a true 'fever' is going to be over 100 or 101 degrees.  As for lowering them (with meds or ice), I leave them alone unless they climb to 103, because a fever is your body's way of killing off germs.
