Hi there- my DD is 12 weeks! And she seems to have a
very hot head (temperature wise NOT temperament!!) her
temp seems ok but I am not 100% sure. Is it normal for
babies to have hot heads? Can't find anything about it
in Baby Love.
Am just starting to get a bit parnoid probably- she is
still smiling, "talking" and sleeping ok.
Or do I take her to the dr to be on the safe side?

Hey Bluemist - take her temperature with a thermometer to be on the safe side. However, baby's heads, hands and feet are not a very good indication of their body temps. The best place to feel if you baby is too hot is the back of the neck or on their upper back area.
My DD's head is usually quite hot, her hands warm and feet cold, but her body temp when taken with thermometer is normal.

Just think of all the happiness she will bring into our home...
...not to mention stray kittens and homeless puppies, paper dolls, crayons, the neighbours' flowers...
