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. [...]

    Comments about Vicks Rectal Baby Thermometer:

    I was very scared to use a thermometer, this Vicks brand thermometer was so easy to handle and due to the size it gave me the security I was not going to hurt my baby. It is easy to use and the size is perfect for carrying as well as for when I was using it. The only thing I would of liked was for the light to stay on while the numbers were changing. But it does turn on when it beeps and it is done. I loved this thermometer and would very highly recommend it and buy it again if needed!

      It's a very simple, easy thermometer and gave us peace of mind for our little one. It's nice and small and the barrier ensures you give your child any additional discomfort.

          I was so nervous about inserting the thermometer too far, with this one it's impossible. Plus with a 10 second read my baby doesn't have time to get upset about it.

                We have had this thermometer for almost 2 years and could not imagine not having it! It is easy to hold and read temperature. The design is great for new or experienced parents, as it only allows the correct amount to penetrate. I have bought three more as baby shower gifts since owning my own.

                    Comments about Vicks Rectal Baby Thermometer:

                    The size of this thermometer helps to make sure it is not inserted too deep or far, and it measures the temperature faster than a regular thermometer used the same way. Helps to give you less to worry about when you may already be worried about your child having a temperature.

                      Of course, being a first time mom has you worry about almost everything! And with the flu season upon us (and all the family functions) I wanted to be prepared! Anytime I feel my little Charlie (a girl) sneezes one two many times, or the sight of what I thingk is a runny nose, I pull out my Vicks Thermometer! It's so small, so quick and so accurate! Charlie has no idea it is even there!
