Baby Thermometers and Checking for Fever?

Can anyone recommend a specific thermometer that they like for babies? Is there a difference between thermometers marketed for babies and those for adults? Is there a range in quality, or will any digital thermometer do? Also, I have been taking my son's temperature under his arm when checking for a fever, but it always seems low--lower than regular body temperature. Should I be checking a different way? Any advice on how best to tell if baby has a fever? What temperature constitutes something to worry about? Thank you!
