Thermometer suggestions?

[deleted account] ( 7 moms have responded )

Does anyone have recommendations for thermometers? We're currently using a basic digital thermometer in the underarm and it takes FOREVER! We need something that is must faster but still accurate.

I have a one second ear thermometer. I considered a "no touch" forehead one but was told by the lady in the shop that they are not very accurate. The ear one is very easy and my baby doesn't mind it.

i have one that goes in the ear..takes from 2-5 seconds to get a reading and is very accurate. There is also one you can get to put on the forehead 2.

I also use underarm thermometers, but there are faster ones. My underarm thermometer takes a temperature in 5 sec., where some take 3 full mintues.

I got my thermometer at Wal-mart, just make sure you read the package and it will tell you the response time. Good Luck!
