Thermometer For Children


Some parents feel like the back of their hands are thermometers.

Different types of Thermometer suitable for kids:


🌡Rectal Thermometer: The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests a rectal thermometer for children three years old or younger. That’s because rectal thermometers provide the most accurate reading for young kids.

🌡Oral Thermometer: Once your child is 4 or 5 years old, they can handle oral thermometers. Make sure they keep their mouth closed when the thermometer is placed under their tongue.

🌡Tympanic (Ear) Thermometer: These provide quick results—in just a few seconds—and generally keep kids relaxed and comfortable.

🌡 Temporal (Forehead) Thermometer: You can choose a temporal scanner if your little one doesn’t tolerate other types of thermometers. They’re fast and fairly accurate.

Send this post to someone who always checks temperature with the back of their hands.
