Renesmee should be slightly colder then a human because of who her father is, and the fact that Bella's 'bite mark' was slightly colder then the average human, if you totally disregard the fact that it was brought up that she has 23(?) chromosomes.Her being warmer is a factual error, IMO, that was put it just so Jacob could get his happily ever after. To me it doesn't add up for her to be warmer, unless the only reason she's warmer is because of the chromosome count.

I don't remember it saying this in the book. Can anyone help me find it?

I would think she would be colder than Jacob, if anything, just the same temp as a normal human.

As she is half human, half vampire it would make sense that she was slightly cooler than a human but not as cold as a vampire. To be hotter than Jacob seems odd and not plausable. It doesnt make sense in my opinion

Nessie is much warmer than Bella and Edward but cooler than the average human and Jacob, I believe. Where does it say she's warmer?

Nessie is said to be the same temperature as Jacob. In the last chapter of Jacob's Book, Jacob mentions (when he touches her during the delivery) that she felt "warm" to him. And when Bella touches Renesmee after she is a vampire, Nessie is really hot, the same when she touches Jacob.

I agree with everyone here, it is very odd.

That's weird. I remember discussing it before now, though. That makes NO sense. It does that she'd be very warm to Bella but not to Jacob. Maybe she's warm to Jacob because she's his imprint? Then she'd be the same as an average human, because the average human feels warm to another human and hot to a vampire.

Renesmee is supposed to be between a human and a shapeshifter as far as body temperature, but closer to Jacob(a shapeshifter).

Amethyst beat me to it. It mentioned Nessie feeling hot when she brushed against Jacob. But I don't think it would be from the imprinting...he didn't even see her yet so...

This. Renesmee's temperature, as Bella puts it, is hot like Jacob but maybe a few degrees cooler.

That would make her hotter than a normal human, and anyone sensitive to that (Jacob included) would feel that she is quite warm to the touch.

Renesmee feels warm to Jacob because she's nearly his temperature. Just like Edward feels warm to Bella after her transformation, when they're the same temperature. Just like one human feels warm to another human.

And yep, I think the heat is supposed to be a 24 chromosome pair thing, like the accelerated growth.
