seems bit low to me.

Took it as she felt baking during a sleep terror. Was shocked it was low. Have googled but only coming up with hypothermia. Don't really think its that.

any ideas or is that ok?

she felt hot to my touch. Though she might have a fever cos she was soaking from sweating. She hasn't been poorly but suffering from night terrors this week.

Sure therm not broken cos tested on self. smile

I think it does drop when you are sleeping now you mention it.

thank you. Will check again in half hour. I'm sure she's fine.

I think there is wuote a range, what are you using?

If you position the thermometer worng then it can drops several degrees.

is that right. ?

Fairly sure it was positioned correctly. I didn't know that.

also ear ones and head ones give different readings. ear ones are better and in think your meant to add a degree to head ones. Please dont quote mejust rememebering GP said one mad night with sick kiddies
