    Quick read, easy to use, and at a great price point! Dec 21, 2018

  • Inexpensive and reliable for checking babies temperature. Also love that it’s so compact and easy to store! Oct 28, 2018

  • I love this rectal thermometer because it reads the temperature pretty fast. I've had other ones that take so long to take the reading and it's so annoying. Pretty accurate readings as well Oct 20, 2018

  • I have this and like it. It worked well for us. It is accurate and easy to use. No complaints here. Oct 15, 2018

  • I love how quick and easy this is to use. I also love being able to tell the doctor a more accurate temperature if my baby is sick. Aug 13, 2018

  • Baby doesn't mind it and you can't stick it in too far due to the design. Jul 10, 2018

    This was recommended to me by a nurse. It is easy to use and is accurate. I’ve had to use it a few times, baby doesn’t even notice. The rectal thermometer is a necessity! Jun 03, 2018

  • So accurate. It’s easier to use than I thought it would be. It’s fast too because you don’t want to be in “there” for too long. Apr 21, 2018

  • Gives a fast reading. Great for newborns but not easy to use once baby becomes mobile. Mar 21, 2018

    While any thermometer will do a rectal, this makes it seem less scary, and has a quick 10 second read feature. Just make sure to use a little lubricant when taking the temp. Mar 11, 2018

  • Easy to use, and beeps when the temperature reading is finished. Comes with a protective cover. All parents of infants need a simple rectal thermometer in their toolbox and this one is a good choice. Jan 07, 2018

  • Great size and easy to use! Oct 18, 2017
