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 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.

          Comments about Vicks Rectal Baby Thermometer:

          My toddler is impossible with underarm temp thermometers- he's never even warm when I try with that. I started doing temps rekt ally to be accurate and let me tell you with a "spirited child" this becomes almost frightening using a regular longer thermometer.

          I picked up this little one thinking hey what the hell and it's the BEST thing ever. I'm mad I waited so long to pick one up! He seems to not wiggle as much for temp at all with it- maybe the tiny tip helps, and it can't slip out or in as much at all- it's made a huge improvement. I tell my pregnant friends to get one of this and another typical therm on their baby registries.

              When looking for a digital thermometer for our newborn, my priorities were time, ease of use, and easy to view window. This thermometer was perfect. In a quick 10 seconds I had a clear reading of my baby's temperature.
