Baby thermometer- recommendations needed!
3

Fleetw00d · 04/07/2021 21:26

Hi all, think it's time I buy a thermometer for my baby (3 month old) as think it will be handy to have.
Is it best to get the in ear ones, point at forehead no touch ones or under the armpit? What's most accurate and does anyone have one they would recommend?
Ideally don't want to spend too much, max £20!
Thanks all!

I found the ear ones the best and most accurate. Under the armpit was a nightmare as they wiggle too much to get an accurate reading! I got Tommee Tippee, reading in seconds. I'd suggest Tommee Tippee or Braun both brill. Around £20-£30. X

Ear Braun is great

I bought a Braun in the ear thermometer for my baby and used it when he was a newborn, but I recently read that the NHS recommend under the armpit for young babies as they’re more accurate!
