Vicks Baby Rectal Thermometer - okay so I know the idea of doing a rectal temperature is beyond eww and unpleasant sounding. But rechecking a high temp with a rectal thermometer is important(this is coming from a Pedi nurse). Trust me you want one.
Every parent dreads waking up in the night with a sick baby. As most parents know, taking a squirming baby's temperature can be challenging. But it's one of the most important tools mothers and doctors have to determine if a baby has an illness or infection. The best and most accurate method for the squirming baby is to take your baby's temperature rectally. We prefer the old fashioned glass baby rectal thermometer. This one is beefy and 5" long for larger babies. They are inexpensive, low maintenance and don't contribute exhausted batteries or other electronic discards. We recommend taking large babies tempertures at least every week and anytime they are fussy.
