I think normal depends on yourself. I believe normal can vary from person to person, it can also vary depending on the way you measure temperature. If his temp is 36.3 day after day well thats normal for him. Unless bubs is showing signs of being cold (which doesn't sound so). I know you start to worry when the temp gets closer to 40oC in a fever, don't know what to worry on the other end of the scale.
I believe the most accurate way to measure temp is internally and ear thermometers or underarm/mouth ones can vary depending on how they are applied.
