Baby temp

Hey, I was wondering if my lo is just a hot baby or not?

A couple times when the HV has been over she has said that he is too hot and needs to be stripped off to cool down. I don't know if it's just me, but when i feel him, he seems warm, but not boiling, and it's not like i'm over dressing him, he was only wearing a thin t-shirt and linen trousers today. He's just been sat in his nappy all day since she left as that seems to keep him at the temp she recommended, but surely i can't keep him undressed all the time?! :\?

Other than that, he's a perfectly contented baby, putting on weight and is alert etc.

Is anyone else having this problem? It's making me feel a bit like a bad mummy if i can't tell if he's cooking or not and i feel like i'm constantly checking his temperature, but am obviously still getting it wrong :\(
