Product Description

Vicks Baby Rectal Thermometer for ages infant to 2 years old brings new innovation to the thermometer market; its design has been tailored to the specific anatomical area being measured. This design makes rectal temperature-taking quicker, more accurate and, best of all, more comfortable for the baby. Parent-friendly features include an ergonomic, compact size; a guard against over-insertion; a flexible tip; and a large backlit LCD positioned on the side for easy viewing. In addition, the thermometer only requires one hand to operate, freeing the other hand to soothe the infant.

I've had this thermometer for over 2 years now & it's the ONLY one I would trust. As a new mom, I wanted to avoid this type of thermometer, so I tried all the other types of "easier" thermometers on the market (none of which could give an accurate or consistant reading). When my baby/child is sick accuracy & consistancy of a thermometer is SO important! A degree or even a fraction of a degree can make a big difference. So glad I found this thermometer! It's the best & it's very fast & easy. The design of the short probe with the fat handle is great for when you feel like you don't know what you're doing as a 1st time mom! Love it!

Stopped working; replacement failed too

I liked the short tip and the quick read, but after about 15 months of infrequent use, it stopped working. [...]

It works for now...

By warp17

from Canaan, NH

Comments about Vicks Rectal Baby Thermometer:

Seems to be a common problem, does anyone test these things? the motor starts grinding and grinding... sometimes first turn it on, or at random At night and won't stop until you turn it on and off multiple times. This time It started on the third day of using it. Otherwise everything seems to work fine.... tried two units so far (thinking maybe faulty unit) and always the same problem.

      Disappointed

      By Anabri

      from Apache Junction, AZ

      Comments about Vicks Rectal Baby Thermometer:

      Purchased in oct, 2014. Worked well for the first month, nice, quiet, and worked very well. Then the motor starting making a noise when the unit was turned on. I'd hafto turn it on and off muliple times in order for it to stop making noise. Then last week (jan 15, 2015) the unit just stopped working. I'd turn it on, and nothing. Sometimes I'd see the green light flicker on/off quickly.

      You Can See the Mist!

      By Caro56

      Comments about Vicks Rectal Baby Thermometer:

      You will not need to wonder if this product is working. You see the mist and smell the amazing Vicks inserts at work. It is easy to clean and easy to ensemble. Perfect for college dorms that are too hot and stuffy. Great for kids who need humidifier relief. Great for vocalist, performers, actors before their big performance.

          Comments about Vicks Rectal Baby Thermometer:

          My newborns temperature was slightly elevated when she was discharged from the hospital so the pediatrician recommend taking her temperature every 4 hours to monitor it.
          This thermometer worked great. The short probe made me worry less about inserting it to far and it read her temperature quickly so she was not too uncomfortable while testing.
          I highly recommend this thermometer.

            This thermometer is perfect for newborns! My son was 11 weeks and I could tell he was hot so I went for the thermometer n it died right in the middle of a reading so I had to run to the store and I tried this item and it really works great. It has a fast and accurate reading time and it's the perfect size so it's impossible to put it in to far. All of my prego friends and my sister will be getting this as a baby shower gift!
