I'm looking for some recommendations for a thermometer to use for my daughters. My 4 year old still doesn't get the idea to keep the thermometer under her tongue and it's nearly impossible to get a reading under her armpit. I am looking to buy a temporal one. Does anyone have any recommendations for a good one (with an accurate reading)?
Thanks for any suggestions!

What can I do next?

The Braun Thermoscan is pretty good. It's not a temporal, it's a tympanic one, so it goes in the ear. It sells at Target for $40. Good Luck!

If you belong to Sam's Club you can get the Exergen model for $25-30 and it works well.

I have the Exergen temporal one. We like it. We have been more successful with this one than any other one that we have tried.

Definitely agree with the other posters: Exergen works fantastic and I like it because I can take a temperature while the little ones are sleeping

We have a Phillips temporal thermometer that we've had for more than 10 years and it is terrific.

I have the Exergen temporal scanner. I love it. It's acurate and gets a temp in seconds!

Exergen. I had to chart my son's rectal temp when he was a baby for a study and I compared with the Exergen to see how accurate it was. Never off by more than .1 degrees.


answers from Dayton on

If you want a accurate reading...well...I wouldn't get the Exergen one.
I have it. I hate it.
I get a different reading each time.
If your kid is sweaty/clammy it sticks to their forehead.
I would look into the Braun kind...I hear good things about those.
