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've been looking for an accurate way to take my infant's temperature. The digital temple thermometer I bought was no good. My pediatrician recommended this Vicks thermometer but the thought of using one scared me. This item is easy to use because it shows you exactly how far to insert it and only takes 10 seconds to give a reading--a good thing when you have a wriggling infant like I do!

      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.

            Comments about Vicks Rectal Baby Thermometer:

            It worked great for the first month then it started to make a noise when you start it up and it would stop after a minute sometimes not at all. it was working then stopped while on. Now it wont turn on at all and the green light flashes very dim and quickly.

            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.

                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.
