Best measurement of temperature in newborn is rectal which is the core temperature....However if you have measured the axillary temaparature then u Shud add 1°F... and usually newborns in summers will have tendency to go for dehydration fever.....

Thank u for reply sir!! I came to know from a doctor that norms were changed in 2011 and now addition of 1°F is not required.
