How to Check Your Baby’s Body Temperature

The best way to tell that your baby is at a comfortable temperature is by placing two fingers down the back of their neck to feel between the shoulder blades. If their back is nice and warm, they are at a good temperature, even if their hands and feet are cool. If your baby’s back feels hot and clammy, remove a layer of clothing whether they are awake or asleep. If your baby feels cold, add a layer of clothing and check the room temperature (16 to 20°C is ideal).
