Low temp should I be worried

Does anyone know what the normal temp for a 14 month old? My dd temp has been fine in the day time but it drops at night to 35.1 even with baby grow, vest and a blanket. Is that normal? Should I be worried? I have just put a extra 2 more thick blankets, hopefully she will warm up.

Why are you checking her temp? Step away from the thermometer unless she appears ill. At 14months if she's too cold she will let you know. Best way to check her temp is to use your hand on her chest, tummy and see if she actually feels cold. She shouldn't need two more thick blankets at this time of year. Unless you live somewhere really cold. I think your thermometer isprob not accurate.
