Poor Molly bug was up every two hours last night with a fever. I could not get a good reading (anywhere from 95 to 104, which was obviously wrong) since she was so squirmy, but she seems to be back to normal now. I don't think the fact that she went to bed in footie pajamas helped. She was letting out squawks from the time she went down (around 9) until 2 am when it finally woke her up. She was warm, but she konked out on me in her glider and I put her back down. When she woke up at 4 she was super hot and a little sweaty, but I thought it was just her footie pajamas and the fact that it was a warm night and her window and door were both closed (rest of the windows in the house were open). I side fed her and she went back down. At 6 she was super hot and this is when I first took her temperature. We have an ear thermometer which is pretty accurate if you can get a good reading. This wasn't working so I finally took her temp under her arm and it was 99.8. Not too bad, but she felt warmer than that and I could not get another reading. She side feed again (eating is a good sign), but would only fall asleep on me. She woke up again for good around 7:30, but I think her fever had already broken at this point because she was starting to cool off. She woke up from her morning nap completely normal and is playing beside me in her play pen totally content. Poor bug. I think tonight I'll skip the footie pajamas and just keep her in a onesie.
