Is it ok for a baby to have a fever of 99.9 since he was born?

Im not a dr. but I don't think so. If a child has a fever of one

hundred or one hundred and one, it is usually a sign that he is

cutting teeth. Therefore, not knowing how old your baby is, I would

say something is going on inside. make sure you are not keeping

them over bundled with clothing or hats. heat escapes from the

head, so if you keep it covered all the time, the body is retaining

the heat. Talk to your dr.
