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. [...]

Good alternative to traditional thermometer

      Comments about Vicks Rectal Baby Thermometer:

      This product is much better to use than the traditional digital thermometer. It is very helpful that the end is shorter because my daughter tends to kick while having her temperature taken, resulting in her kicking my hand and forcing the thermometer in further. Also very easy to read and clean.

      Comments about Vicks Rectal Baby Thermometer:

      Before purchasing this product I would use a regular digital thermometer since that was the one that came in the first aid kit. However, it never provided me with a quick enough reading and my son wouldn't sit still very long. After purchasing this product it was quick and easy to get an accurate reading.

          This is the most accurate way to take your baby's temperature! It gives a fast reading and the probe is small enough where I'm not afraid to take my baby's temperature rectally!

          Great product. It takes the guess work about how far to put the thermometer. When my son had a fever after his shots this came in handy and he didn't even notice that I was ever taking his temperature.

                            I haven't actually used this product yet because my little girl isn't here for a few more weeks. However, I received it as a shower gift from my aunt who is a baby whisperer. She swears by these things. Some people use a normal thermometer and end up hurting their baby by accidently inserting too far. Yikes! Vicks is a solid brand that I've always used. While I hate the idea of needing to use this on a sweet little baby, I know it will come in handy.

                                This is perfect. I was using a digital scan over the head when our pediatrician recommended we check our little one's temperature rectally. Naturally I was nervous but this came with simple instructions and gives a fast 10 second read for the most accurate temperature.
