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 highly recommend this thermometer for all new babies. I got this as a baby shower gift for my first daughter, and now with my third child I'm buying it again. Works super fast, accurate, and lasts a long time. The design is great too, it ensures you do not insert too far.

            Love this thermometer. My son is 13 months now and we've been using
            It since day one. I love that it protects from over insertion so I can feel confident using it even with a squiggly baby. Works fast and is very accurate. Just be careful washing! I ran it under the faucet with soap and water and got water trapped in the readout screen. Sadly it stopped working. Bought a new one and wash it with rubbing alcohol instead and have had a great experience this way.

                A true lifesaver!!!

                By Experienced Momma

                from Florida

                Comments about Vicks Rectal Baby Thermometer:

                This was a life saver when our little one was sick. Taking the temp under the arm was never really reliable. We found this and love it! It's the fastest thermometer I've ever used even faster than the doctor's. In just a couple seconds you'll know if you're baby has a fever. It lights up so you can read the temp and shows the previous temp when you go to use it again which is great for telling if it went up or down. I highly recommend this and have even made it a staple in the baby gifts I give. Worth every penny!!

                            I like this product so much I bought a 2nd! It is very easy to use, and it is also accurate. The doctor told me that it was easy to enjoy your baby with some thermometers, but this thermometer does not allow you to do that. The shape of the thermometer itself protect the baby from getting hurt. Also, I checked his temperature right before leaving for the doctor's office, by the time I got to the doctor five minutes later, the temperature was the same within a hundredth of a degree. I would absolutely recommend this thermometer to anyone.
