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:

    This is a must get for your babies especially for new moms. Its safe for those who dont know how far to insert the traditionally thermometers recatlly, and since the doctors want a baby butt temperature when you call in till at least two longer for some. Just make sure you use a water base lubricant like KY jelly. This thermometer is not compatible with petrolium jelly/vasiline. Its a must have for baby.

                  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!

                      this is a great, reliable thermometer. i thought i'd get an in-ear one but after reading reviews about the unreliability of ear and temporal thermometers i went ahead with this simple bottom one. it's easy to use and no worry about going in too far and it reads quickly with a beep. easily cleanable with a cotton ball and rubbing alcohol.
