  • I have a Vick's thermometer and its been the one I've trusted over the others. I looked online before I bought it and it seems like Vick's had the best user reviews so that's what I went with. I'd stick with the Vick's one. It's only 1 degree difference which isn't too bad.

  • Not sure but I have an ear one and I am ready to throw it in the trash. I don't even understand how it can be marketed as a thermometer. I use it on myself and it says I am 94, 95, 96 degrees? I have a digital one that I use on my toddler but I don't really trust that either because I use it under his arm. I use it as a guideline only and use my judgement as a mommy :) Trust your gut!
