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:

    Good design. It has a flexible tip and is short to remind (prevent) you from sticking it in too far. You won't mistake this one with an oral thermometer, either. Has a nice plastic sleeve for storage. The only negative thing is that it advertises 8 or 10 seconds, but this time isn't a fixed value, just an average, so it could take longer depending on how it's used. Just a minor nitpick.

      Most accurate temperature detection device for infants and small toddlers. It's small size allows you to keep it anywhere.

        Easy to use. A nice easy to read display. I love the audible alert when temperature is taken. Can take temperature readouts in seconds. The only downfall I experienced was that the temperature readout was off a little.

          The thermometer is easy enough to read. Even though the thermometer is for the bum, we have only used it under baby's arm. The wait time for the temperature is very quick and I like the case/cover it comes with.

            Comments about Vicks Rectal Baby Thermometer:

            I purchased this thermometer when my son came down with his first case of the day care crud. My pediatrician says temps taken below the waist are the most accurate for babies under six months. The way this thermometer is shaped, being shorter, makes me a little less nervous about accidentally injuring him. The only thing I don't like is that it takes a good bit longer to get a read than our aural thermometer - almost ten seconds. That's a lot of time for a sick baby to get squirmy!
