child digital thermometer.

im thinking of getting one of the digital thermometers like they use in hospital, i have a small one at the moment that goes into the ear and my daughter hates it, she wont even let me put it under her armpit, she was running a slight temp last night but couldnt keep it in long enough to get a reading, i noticed while my son was in hospital and they took his temp all they did was put the thermometer in his ear for a second and it was done. ive seen one on amazon and you have to buy the new tips for it aswel, can anyone recommend a good one.

the best is a braun thermoscan ( prob the one you saw on amazon ) , they do need the tips which is unfortunate, but they are accurate, I use one for my 2 babies ( 4 mths and 14 mths ) and they tolerate it well, have used one for years ( am an rgn ) for work.

does this one do it quite quick? i think it was a braun one i saw on amazon.

Can't you just use a forehead thermometer?

the one im looking at on amazon shows underneath what other people bought with it which is the probe covers and then some lens filters do you need these aswel as the probe covers.

ive been told these arnt very good, plus im not sure my daughter would sit still long enough for me to keep it on her head, shes only 1 so doesnt understand what im trying to do.

ive just been and got one from boots, wasnt as cheap as Amazon but would rather have it now with my daughter being ill and my son just out of hospital so i can keep an eye on thier temperatures.
