Vicks Rectal Baby Thermometer

A raised temperature in a baby can be alarming so with young babies it is important to take a their temperature rectally to get the most accurate reading. The award winning Vicks Baby Rectal Thermometer is ergonomically designed with a round handle to fit in the palm of your hand. With a short, flexible and hypoallergenic tip, the thermometer is easy to use. Operable with one hand, this a popular thermometer with parents. The only downside is that it may not be useful for older kids who will not allow and do not need a rectal temperature reading. I do really like the thermometer but I am not sure if I would buy it since it has a short lifespan and hopefully your baby does not get sick in that short time so you may never even use it.
