Hi 4mumnbub,

He might just be feeling a bit 'off'.  You know how you can feel a bit sick and not get a temp..same thing.

When my kids get temps, I not only feel their forehead, but also their chest, back, inbetween their shoulders and their hands and feet...

I would be giving water, and maybe a bath (they always make me feel better and fresher), and let him nap & give cuddles.

Keep an eye on him and if he does get a temp or if it hasn't changed by this afternoon say at 4, then I would be making an appointment for tomorrow or tonight if you can.

You can always cancel dr's appointments if he goes back to normal by the morning...

I hope he is fine.

Hi There,

My DD was the same a few days ago. I said to my DH that her head felt hot. But she didn't have a temp.

She was fine in herself though, she had normal amount of energy and laughing/smiling.

A few days later a picked her up from her nap and she felt red hot. She was 38.3 degrees. She was still her happy little self though apart from a little cough.

Took her to Dr yesterday and she has a little adnoid (sp?) infection. So i am just keeping an eye on her.

I would take your DS to the Dr just to get checked over. Can't hurt can it???

Hope he perks up soon xx
