I've tried the high tech thermometers, but this is the only thermometer I've had that will consistently give me an accurate reading. We can do under the arm and oral and get close to the same answer every time.

Great little thermometer for the price. Not too expensive and does it's job. One button turns it on, so nothing fancy. You could purchase a few to have around the house. We have one for and oral thermometer and we had one for a rectal when our babies were little.

I have had several thermometers being a mom but the reason I'm writing a review on this one is that is the only one you'll ever really need. The only John Paul is how small it is so make sure you put it in a drawer so you won't lose it.

Great thermometer to have the kids. Very easy to use and durable for the price. I was able to buy it from the local Walgreens store so that was convenient. I would definitely recommend this product.

This is your simple, basic thermometer. I usually buy the plastic tips to cover the end as a sanitary measure. The screen is clearly visible and the beeps help with how long to wait.

Not a bad thermometer for the price. Ordered two, both worked just fine. These were some of the most inexpensive ones I found that were decent quality

This thermometer works great. I tried it once and wouldn't trade it for any other one. It is not uncomfortable to use and gives accurate readings.

So I've been using this for my 1yr old under the arm and was told to always add an extra degree. Does this give a proper reading or should I break down and get the suppository thermometer? I feel awful putting things in my babies butt
