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 bought this one month in advance to be prepared for the baby. Didn't need it until 2 months after she was born. A total of three months before I actually used it and it would only turn on but nothing would show on the screen. Had to run out to the store and buy another one with a sick baby with a fever at home. Very frustrating.

    Biggest issue is just the size. Works great however there needs to be more room from the tip that is inserted to the body of the thermometer.

      Very easy to use on my infant son. He could not even tell when I was taking his temperature rectally, which is the required method for his pediatrician.

            Comments about Vicks Rectal Baby Thermometer:

            I bought this to have a thermometer for my newborn and to stimulate her bottom due to her not having a bowel movement for the first 6 days of life. The ease and convenience of this thermometer was much needed for a tired mama. There was no fuss with multiple buttons or features. It did the job just fine and is good quality. Not like one of those throw away thermometers that you buy in desperate times, that you know you'll lose eventually.
