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 really debated on what kind of thermometer to buy after my little one was born. It was very clear we would need a good one once he was here and it was something I hadn't thought of before. I wanted something I knew would be accurate and the bum thermometers are the most, but I was scared to use the one the hospital gave us.
      This was perfect because you know exactly how far it should go in to get the best reading.
      As a first time (paranoid) mom I have used it quite a bit and it works quickly and baby doesn't seem to mind too much. I bought 2 so one stays with Grandma. And I have bought to give to friends having babies.

          We love this thermometer, used it with a hospital thermometer and is very reliable! The only down fall is the plastic that protects the thermometer falls off, but being reliable out weighs that con.

                  I have found this thermometer to be the best that I've used so far. I have three boys under the age of three, when they're all sick and it's in the middle of the night trying to take temperatures, you want to be as accurate as you can. The short tip is genius! So, when you're barely awake and trying to take temps, you don't hurt your babies. This thermometer takes the temperature quickly and is very accurate.

                    I specifically wanted a rec. thermometer for more accurate results as another brand I had was inaccurate. I'm very happy about this purchase. The wonderful thing about it is that its inexpensive compared to other brands. I love the lighting on it as well. I really don't have any complaints!

                            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.

                            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.
