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:

    this is a great, reliable thermometer. i thought i'd get an in-ear one but after reading reviews about the unreliability of ear and temporal thermometers i went ahead with this simple bottom one. it's easy to use and no worry about going in too far and it reads quickly with a beep. easily cleanable with a cotton ball and rubbing alcohol.

      I have not used this thermometer rectally yet, only under the arm. It works well, and I love that it's easy to keep with me in the diaper bag at all times because it's so small.

        Comments about Vicks Rectal Baby Thermometer:

        My son is 7 weeks old and has his first cold virus and feve. After trying the two digital thermometers we received at our shower, we decided that it was impossible to take an accurate infant temp with these devices because they took WAY to long. This themometer is AMAZING, takes temp in 5sec with no discomfort to my son.

          I have been using this thermometer on my 2 week old late preemie. I use it twice a week during a diaper change. He squirms and screams during all diaper changes so this thermometer is great.
          It reads fast and easy so I don't have to torture my little guy longer than I need to

              I bought a temporal thermometer before LO came out, and found out on the day LO got his first series of vaccination that only retal thermometer is accurate for newborn. So I rushed to store and picked this one. So far so good, just had a hard time finding sustitute for vaseline as stated in the instruction.
