Ear thermometer?

my dd is 14 months old and taking her temp all the other ways is really hard to do these days! ive been doing it under the arm but she fights me now! i just want an idea of wat her temp is when she is sick so i know when i should start treating it but normally i just let it run its course!
any good ear thermometers out there that dont cost an arm and leg?

  • I just want to warn you that I bought one that did cost an arm and a leg, and it didn't fit in my daughter's ear, making it useless for taking her temp. Luckily, she stopped fighting me with the underarm temp taking.

  • We found an accurate forehead thermometer from Vick's for $20ish. You just turn it on and touch the forehead for a second. It works with in fared I think.
