Brief Answer: relax. Detailed Answer: Hi. Thanks for your query. I understand your concern. Relax,there is nothing to worry. Yes it is on lower side.,but I suggest you to record it at regular intervals and make sure your termometer is giving correct reading. In the meantime wrap her well with warm clothes. Watch her activity/ feeding pattern/urine output. In case she is active nothing to worry. In case she appears lethargic or there is refusal of feed get her examined by pediatrician. Hope I have answered your query,let me know if you have any further question. Wishing your little XXXXXXX good health. God bless....
