- Apr 19, 2018 -

The rules for taking baby's armpit temperature.An axillary temperature will normally be lower than a rectal temperature. A common definition for fever using the rectal method is 100.4 F, while for the axillary method it's 99.3 F. A systematic review published in April 2000 in "BMJ" found that there was wide variation between axillary and rectal temperatures. Rectal temperatures are the "gold standard" for accurate measurement. Call your doctor whenever your baby appears ill, whether or not a fever registers on an axillary thermometer reading.
