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 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!

    This is one of the quickest thermometers I have ever used. So quick that my son doesn't try to fight it like when we have to take it under his arm.

      As a medical professional, I knew we would want a recital thermometer for the Morse accurate readings. This one is easy to use and works great.

          Comments about Vicks Rectal Baby Thermometer:

          I was initially reluctant to go this route but all the sources online identified this class of thermometers as the most accurate option for use at home. Ultimately, if I am concerned about my lo's temperature, I want the peace of mind that comes with using the most accurate tool. This thermometer is easy to use and it is designed to prevent parents from inserting it too far. Despite what some online sources indicate, you should not use petroleum jelly as the lubricant, the instructions advise using only water based lubricants. I do think that would be helpful information to have on the back of the packaging to help buyers avoid a second trip just to purchase the specified lubricant.
