Best thermometer?

What type of thermometer do you all mom's use to check the lil one's temps? I've been using an digital ear thermometer but it just broke and my son isn't feeling great. Have any suggestions- I wasn't big on on the ear one. Also when the kids are sick how often do you check their temps?

  • I check every hour or two. I used the ear thermometer and loved it. The best is a mercury but they take time to use and most kids won't sit still that long.

  • I've always used a basic digital oral thermometer. When the kids were young, I probably checked about every two or three hours. Actually I still try to check every two or three hours, but now it annoys them, lol. I hope your little guy feels better soon.

  • we use the digital one that designed for the arm pit. It works well for us and is not expensive.
