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:

      When looking for a digital thermometer for our newborn, my priorities were time, ease of use, and easy to view window. This thermometer was perfect. In a quick 10 seconds I had a clear reading of my baby's temperature.

                  Worked great. Took a little longer to read the temp than our old Saftey First model but seems to be more accurate.

                  My son had pnuemonia and an ear infection. He didn't like under the arm readings and both armpits produced different temps! I wanted something easy to use that I could trust. I take his temp during diaper changes and he doesn't even notice. Easy to clean. I use alcohol wipes.
