Does below normal temperature affect a child's health?

Q: What is the implication of below normal temperature in children? The temperature reaches 95 F at night. The baby is 2 years old and also has febrile seizures.

A:Subnormal temperatures are not proper, but make sure the baby is appropriately covered and not over covered and you are taking temperature properly by keeping the thermometer in the armpit for 2 minutes. Low body temperatures, specially in newborn babies and small infants, can cause harm to the baby like drop in blood sugar.
