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.

Features

  • 10 second readings
  • Short probe tip for safe reading

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 love this product. My daughter suffers from seizures which tend to come with a high fever. Therefore it's super important that I use the best thermometer possible. This one always gives and actuate temp. I love that the tip is short so there's no chance of hurting my baby because I have put too much of the tip in.

                I love that it can take the temperature and give me a fast reading. I know it's uncomfortable for my little one but it's the best way to get an accurate reading.

                    Best thermometer I have ever bought. Great for baby temperatures. I have always been afraid to insert thermometer to far but with this one it is impossible. Easy to use and fast readouts.
