Their bodies are also arenâ€™t yet adept at regulating body temperature. This doesnâ€™t mean you shouldn’t take the fever seriously: A fever could be a sign that your baby might be fighting an infection or have a cold. You should monitor her condition closely, regularly taking her temperature and making sure she stays hydrated. If a fever higher thanÂ 100.4 degrees occurs in a newborn or baby under three months, take her to see her doctor.
