I read that rectal thermometers were recommended for newborns, but the hospital informed us that axillary was the up to date recommendation! We ended up getting rid of the rectal thermometer.

It’s easy to use and it kicks out a temperature quickly. I recommend dipping the tip in vasoline before inserting it.

It's perfect! Very safe, I never worry about hurting Little One. The beeping makes it clear when it's ready to take the temperature and when it's done. Very fast. Baby doesn't mind it at all, even when he's grumpy with a fever. Get it! It's awesome.

It's a very economical choice that's quick enough when you need a rectal temp, and you will. TIP: you'll check it more often than you really need to, until you learn that screaming fits all by themselves result in a hot, sweaty, red-faced baby: no fever necessary.

This is very easy to use (and unfortunately I've already used it quite a few times!). My only complaint is it keeps switching to Celcius and I can't figure out how to change it back. So every time I take my son's temperature, I have to search for the conversion into Farenheit - annoying!
